Mail Art Show

“Anything Goes — Everything Shows”

 Call for Entries — Deadline September 1, 2012 (postmark)

Artists and (non-artists!) are invited to submit non-returnable artwork for the 7th annual Anything Goes, Everything Shows mail art show. There is no submission fee. Our mail art show title says it all! ALL submissions will be exhibited in The Courtyard Gallery, from September 15 – Oct 27. Artists are encouraged to demonstrate or explore imagery of any kind.

Anything Goes—Everything Shows is just that, an uncensored free style mail art show. Mail art is art that uses the postal system as a medium. Mail artists typically exchange ephemera in the form of illustrated letters; zines; rubberstamped, decorated, or illustrated envelopes; artist trading cards; postcards; artistamps; faux postage; mail-interviews; naked mail; friendship books, decos and three-dimensional objects.

All media will be accepted and exhibited, including mixed media, Collage, Montage, Sculpture Digital art, Painting, Printmaking, and Photography. Collage and/or the use of imagery are encouraged. Don't be afraid to experiment with 3-dimensional art. We have exhibited painted shoes, records, fish, sticks, and even hog jowls and coal, to name but a creative oddities. Format is freestyle as well. Submissions of any size or shape will be accepted. If you can get a stamp on it and send it through the mail, it will be accepted and exhibited. Remember - Anything Goes, Everything Shows!
