4/20/07, Mail Art, SPA, Barre VT: Studio Place Arts is having three art openings on each of its floors Friday, April 27th. One of the floors will be devoted to items that have been shipped through the post.
Gabrielle Dietzel and Delia Robinson have been sending mail art for decades. When they were neighbors, they sent each other strange things in the mail which they never spoke of: half eaten muffins, dog toys, children's shoes, a french press lid.
The trick is to mail the object WITHOUT an envelope or box. It only becomes "art" if it makes it through the post without protective covering.
The Mail Art Show opening this Friday at SPA will include many objects that Delia and Gabrielle have sent to each other as well as many items mailed from all over the world.
Music: Colin Clary and the Magogs, The Shape of this Town, Hearts with Little Strings, "Her Life of Crime"
Location: SPA in Barre Vermont
