"PORTRAIT" MailArt Call

On September 12 2006 I started a project titled "A Face A Day". I've drawn a "face" inspired by someone/something every day. These drawings are created on a small piece of linoleum and then cut out and printed. As I print the edition, I usually print a few extra onto postcard weight pieces.

In keeping with this project, I'd like to exchange mailart/postcards with your interpretation of a portrait.

End date May 22 2008
Documentation on http://dberube-art.blogspot.com/
Exchange for all submissions

Vittore Baroni is looking for sounds...

hallo, I hope all is going well with you & your projects!

The reason why I write you:

A friend of mine is filming a documentary on MAIL ART starting from my archive, I am trying to put together a "best of" of postal networking-related musical compositions that he can use for the soundtrack. I started with giving him some pieces from the VEC anthologies, Rod Summers, Keith Bates, Monty Cantsin/Istvan Kantor, my own Le Forbici di Manitù 1992 Congress anthem. I wonder if you have any appropriate idea of tracks I should include or material to suggest, possibly in digital Mp3 format (so it can be sent via-email, deadline is mid-September). If your contribution or proposal is used, you will be credited and I will send you a copy of the documentary (it's not for commercial release, my young friend is graduating from art academy and this is his final thesis work).

I hope to hear from you,
ciao,
Vittore

Merry Christmas

THEME: “Merry Christmas”

Comment: artist Jorge Restrepo (www.jorgerestrepo.com) will make an installation in the Spanish Cultural Center, Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central America). The mail-artworks will show the reality of the world, the extreme differences in religion, social classes, justice, poverty, income, access to water, languages…of different countries….of the world. While some people are partying and celebrating, gambling…vacationing…in December, others are suffering. Jorge Restrepo will create an environment of Christmas celebration at the exhibit rooms of the Center…using the mail-artworks. The observer to the exhibit will feel the sensation of Christmas decoration. When attendants look in detail to the decoration (mail-artworks simulating Christmas cards and messages) the reality of the world will appear…dramatically…in from of their eyes…

Electronic documentation to all. Please send Email address, name and postal address.

Format and medium: free . All work be exposed. No returns.

Deadline: November 30, 2007

"What about Croxhapox?"

The Paris Correspondence School



"RIEN," an artist stamp based upon a collage, was featured in the Axis of Evil: The Secret History of Sin exhibition organized by Michael Hernadez de Luna in 2005. Working with my friend, the rubber stamp master, Robert Ruscoe, I produced a half dozen sheets of "RIEN" stamps. [Together, we now operate Lalade Digital Art Press in Paris]. The Axis of Evil show was dedicated to Chicago artist Ed Paschke and honored him by attracting wide attention, including that of the Secret Service. I've put this and others on The Paris Correspondence School page on my web site. I still like dropping these things in the post here in Paris. [Click to enlarge].

RE: Mail Art Network

I'm only accepting mail art if you already know me and have my mailing address. I am no longer giving it out due to security reasons and I am no longer sending snail mail internationally. No emails please. Thank you!

http://mailartnetwork.blogspot.com/

Any technique, any size, any theme. Ongoing. All art received will be posted here, as long as it is viewable by all ages. School children often are online so my blog only posts child friendly art. All other works will be replied to by email if you include it on the piece. I also have a separate blog to document the Doors of the World call. ***UPDATE: Doors project is now closed***.

Thanks,
Sharon Zimmer

Fraenz's big project !

Hello !

Here you may learn more about that (IMHO useful) project !

I'm trying to create
an INTERNATIONAL MAILING LIST
with the aim to make it easier to contact a lot of mail artists in no time, if something
important, interesting or useful ( about mail art, such activities, its actors, etc.)
has to be published in a quick way.
Important to know that it's NOT a newsgroup !!!
It's a simple mailing list that can be used by every LISTED owner of a google
account.
Future listed "real" mail artists has to be known at least by me, or by one of our
mail art colleagues ! - Anonymous guys aren't accepted !
The list is moderated to avoid spam and/or other stupid postings.
Ongoing or not ongoing ...
... that depends on your interest !!!
Please, click

Burlesque

What is Burlesque..?
- 1 : a literary or dramatic work that seeks to ridicule by means of grotesque exaggeration or comic imitation
- 2 : mockery usually by caricature
- 3 : theatrical entertainment of a broadly humorous often earthy character consisting of short turns, comic skits, and sometimes striptease acts

Burlesque is a direct descendant of the Commedia dell'arte where principal characters would carry a "burle"—a stick with a padded end— with which they would slap the other players for comic effect (the origin of "slapstick" comedy).
Burlesque performers often create elaborate sets with lush, colorful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting.
Burlesque is a style of entertainment that encompasses pastiche, parody, and wit.

Calligraphy

Mid-way between writing and painting, proudly stands Calligraphy. This art form is increasingly being used for everyday communication as a result of the richness of modern technology.
This from the first French-Speaking Calligraphy Board.



It is because of the kinship amongst calligraphers from different countries that "Mail Art across the World" project was conceived.


It is a forum of exchange and resources for all kind of writing.
the dutch calligrapher Gerda Heikoop,the belgian association "Plumes et Calames" (Silences, les Dunes ASBL)the french association "Atelier-Calligraphie",the english calligrapher Paul Antoniohave decided to build a bridge between calligraphy lovers all over the world in order to show to everybody that incredible art called Calligraphy.

Here's a list of the books that I have uploadedphotos of 4, 7, 11, 13, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30, 32 and 34.As I've mentioned before…I have several books that have beenlost/kept by artists unwilling to send them back. Here's the list ofthe books I will be listing as MISSING…if you have worked in one ofthese books before the last person swiped them and want to work inanother one, please send me an email: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mailart/post?postID=EA01GoLaielH7FKc52OJLJnZH8iszkWncxj7AsekuV4suzI4ip23kVPeOZ9jtaRFxRe8HHM6MgxkG39R8VZ8abZBxA.
