Mail art by IUOMA member William Mellott (Tainan, Taiwan)

 

July 29, 2019 - This wonderful card came from William Mellott’s current headquarters in Taiwan. But I understand he was actually raised in the Seattle (or Portland?) area of the United States West Coast and has participated in mail art for some time.

William Mellott is a vital contributor to the contemporary mail art scene. I have been admiring his…

Mail art by Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands)

 

July 10, 2019 - I was elated to receive this wonderful card from good mail art friend – Cor Reijn – in the Netherlands. With this elegant and highly conceptual piece, Cor Reijn expresses an issue that I am confident many are pondering at this moment. (Yet no one before has been able to express it so perfectly!) Thank you Cor Reijn.

I believe the question is…

July 8, 2019 - I am thrilled to welcome a rising star in the mail art constellations to my humble blog. At the MinXus-Lynxus blog I have already extended the customary “Howdy,” wink and secret MinXus handshake to a bright-eyed Tenderfoot who is practically a neighbor over yonder in Ohio: Cherub Ayers.

Mail art by IUOMA member Jayne B. Lyons (Lakeville, Minnesota, USA)

 

June 7, 2019 - The resurgence and vitality of Add & Pass in the current network is being duly noted many places. Zines are enjoying a revival as well.

Bonniediva’s Bon-Zine is one such new wave publication receiving much-deserved praise along with Jayne B. Lyons' Uproar. In fact, despite only one (triumphant) issue,…

Mail art by Orlando Nelson Pacheco Acuna (Provincia de Cautin, Chile)

May 30, 2019 - Mail artist Orlando Nelson Pacheco Acuna of Chile sent a wonderful envelope with material related to recent blog discussions about the popularity of zines and add & pass sheets. I do not believe he is a member of the IUOMA but he is an active mail artist whose work can be seen many places on the net. First, I think the zine is…

Mail art by IUOMA member Jon Foster (Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA)

 

May 27, 2019 - In several previous posts, I have noted an add & pass (A&P) mania that has gripped the Eternal Network. Starry-eyed Tenderfoots alongside those lovable, rancorous old codgers of “back in the day” are scrambling for A&P sheets as if it were a modern Gold Rush.

In my humble…

April 18, 2019 - I have never seen nor heard of Richard Canard initiating an add & pass sheet let alone one mentioning Fluxus. So I was surprised when I saw these images turn up on FB thanks to Amy Irwen. I just…

Retrospective-In-A-Bag by Jayne Lyons (Lakeville, Minnesota, USA)

Mail art by IUOMA member Jayne Lyons (Lakeville, Minnesota, USA)

 

April 18, 2019 - Recently Jayne Lyons celebrated her first year in the Eternal Network. This was, in my estimation, a cause for celebration indeed because Jayne Lyons (along with a group of new artists) is emerging as an engaging “mail art persona” & sharing art that crosses a wide spectrum & appeals to many friends.

The significance of one year in the network…

Mail art by Klaus Pinter (Vienna, Austria)

 

April 2, 2019 - Klaus Pinter in Austria sent me – by chance or design I know not which – an incredible example of “Old School” Trashpo that has been such an Eternal Network fave for approaching a decade.

I do not know Klaus Pinter from anywhere along “the long & dusty trail” that I can recollect. It is a great pleasure to make his acquaintance now. And as I…
