2017 exhibition update

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 Facebook page

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).

Long Live The Art! Call for Artists

LONG LIVE THE ART!
Call for mail art artist to celebrate the ART.

collage-final
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.
