Mail art by Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)


September 18, 2018 - Veteran mail artist Sinclair Scripa (aka Tara Verheide aka Tonya) curated major high-profile mail art calls that culminated circa 2017. They have garnered great praise. Sinclair Scripa has also circulated excellent hard copy documentation of her projects. I am so pleased she sent me copies. As usual, even if belated, I am thrilled to share them with you. Tonya also sent some beautiful examples of her work that I present here at the “top” of this ever-humble blog.

Now for the documentation! The two major calls (as I understand it) were (1) WomenArtScientists and (2) AvantGlobalConspiracy at Castelton University in Vermont. These shows were done in conjunction with Sinclair Scripa’s FeMAIL-XX project and her archives. Another exhibit featuring Tonya and CrackerJack Kid was also connected to the larger projects.

Based on my own experiences, I was never exactly sure about the organization of these calls and projects. However, they were well-publicized. I submitted and the work – as if magically – was displayed and documented. Sinclair Scripa is a great curator!

The work provides an incredible overview of the current mail art community and styles of art. I present scans of the material Tonya sent me, but you might also want to peruse the online documentation:
