Mail-art by IUOMA member Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

October 29, 2014 - Veteran mail-artist, former Ray Johnson correspondent and friend to many IUOMA members Richard Canard is as faithful with missives as he is inventive. I never cease to be amazed. I am now in the process of documenting work he has sent me going back to the late summer.

I am proud of my archives, of course. But IUOMA-Ning has a Richard Canard Fan Club where Richard’s work is also shared in a sort of permanent, online exhibition.
