I figured it was a long shot about K. Mary Smith. I asked Picasso and he didn't know her either. Glad this could spur some good memories though.

Yes they were billed as open studios. They lived in a beautiful arts and craft bungalow with wood floors that necessitated removing shoes.Did not know K. Mary Smith . Was more involved n doing installationsAnd handmade books  and my rubber stamped productions were primarily for friends and family and colleagues.As it was they sometimes felt a bit like an assembly line.I moved into ATC exchanges when spending too much time in hospitals due to sick family members, since it was a highly portable form.A good portion of my rubber stamp collection came either from Leavenworth or Bill,,although ai did frequent some rubber stamp conventions back in the day.

Thanks Ann! I was happy that Leavenworth sent work when I asked her if she'd like to participate. Were her house sales when she'd have her open studios? I remember reading about those back in the day and wishing I could attend, but never happened. I did meet her at a few rubber stamp conventions though. I'm pretty sure I met Picasso a few times, but didn't know him like I know him now. Did you ever know K. Mary Smith who lived on Lombard street? She was one of my most regular mail art contacts back in the early 90s.
