MA Kris Naylor sent me a beautiful hand crafted piece with ink imprints over text as secured by gel medium. Unique hand stamping and lettering complete the piece. Celebrating Big Sky & Dark Sky of Arizona, it is one of the US States I hope to visit and photograph.…

Received Art Mail - Cascadia Artpost

Am always excited to receive political MA that speaks to contemporary issues. The state of affairs here n the USA and our dependence of oil is obvious. As an outsider now living in the USA, I am often quite shocked by the difference in attitudes between Canada and the USA. Yet, we Canadians are equally dependent on fossil fuels and contribute to…

I emailed him and requested a regular post address and sent him a digital piece of my own art - yet I feel it lacks the permanence and beauty…

Received Art Mail - Lily Allium

Have been remiss in posting this. Was out of the country and found this incredibly intricate MA package from LA. What a treat. An oatmeal can wrapped in a paper collage complete with paper swan origami inside. A personal note completed the package.

This level of work is so inspiring. It encourages me to be more demanding in my own work and to send out MA that truly does make…

Review of John Bennett's Neolipic

Ron Silliman recently posted an announcement on his blog of the release of John M. Bennett’s Neolipic. The fact that Silliman linked the book seemed an event deserving some small celebration, but then he does make an attempt to present a variety of perspectives.…

Received Art Mail - Austin Wills James

Received handmade MA postcard from AWJ in Dallas. Front is a clever montage sealed in packing tape (love that stuff).

Reverse makes the eternal statement and is capped with red ink drawing and embellishments. Thanks AWJ, nice stuff.…
