The official deadline for the submissions has passed and now comes an exciting time of sorting, photographing and publishing of all fantastic mail art that has kept arriving in last 3 months.
138 artists from 25 countries sent us their postcards and, I must admit, I still don’t have an exact number of artworks. The response was overwhelming, and we have posts from mail art veterans (Ryosuke Cohen, Horst Tress, Katerina Nikoltsou…) and some very young artists that never exhibited their art abroad before.
Droitwich Mail Art has got the Facebook page. As I am working on it retrospectively, it builds up very slowly. For now, there are few posts only and two albums of previous exhibitions (2015 and 2016).
I am looking forward to add more material soon as some excellent and exciting mail art arrived for this year’s exhibition in August.

LONG LIVE THE ART!
Call for mail art artist to celebrate the ART.
The ART has changed its styles, significance and meaning so many times throughout the history, but it has always been a constant part of humanity and the lives of people. Everybody enjoys the ART – commons and royals, children and adults, blue collars and white collars – the art should not know any borders, limits or restrictions. The ART is capable to fit into any shape and form, to fulfil any expectation, to adapt to be understandable to all and to be enigmatic and mysterious. The ART has a duty to enhance the reality, to see the beauty, to recognise diversity, to provoke our thoughts, to call for a rebellion, to punch and shake us.
Please give your view of the art and send us your MAIL ART.

The second Droitwich Mail Art exhibition is opened! The theme was to celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare’s death, but also his plays, characters, life in Tudor times, theatre, tragedy and comedy.
Serse Luigetti is a mail artist from Perugia, Italy, who is active in the mail art movement since beginning of 1980s. He sent us two prints.
Marzia Maria Braglia is an artist from Italy. She is involved in paintings, mail art, poetry… Marzia sent us her ‘l’arte in cartolina’ inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ play. More about Marzia’s art can be found on her website.
Bob Addy is a member of Droitwich Arts Network. He sent us a ‘Lady Macbeth’ in black and white LinoCut. Bob used a photograph from the internet, manipulated it in Photoshop and than cut the lino block by using CNC machine. The actual print was made by hand.
