The Windisch-Hunt Gallery of 2911 Grand Avenue proudly presents an exhibition of Mail - Art.

The reception is from 2-4pm on Saturday the 26th of April. The show will run until May 23rd afterwards it will travel to Andrew's Art Museum in North Carolina.

The art of correspondence has a long history, some say it began when Cleopatra delivered herself in a rug to Caesar, gods are dedicated to the delivery of mail. Mail art, as all forms of art, has been instrumental in furthering political and social causes such as fair trade, revolutions, and Abolition and beyond with realistic, comic or satiric flair.
This exhibition showcases the thoughts and imaginations of artists all over the world, giving us perspectives on life, art, politics and society that are unexpected, candid, and some intellectually provocative.
There are pieces from Seattle that show a bold commentary on the state of the economy, the President and the banks of America that seek reprieve from their own financial crisis to vivid illustrations of fantasy from Germany. A beautiful red shoe arrived pushing the envelope. An entry by Lilliana Dones who is current Grove Chamber President, submitted a work she created 30 some years ago titled "29 cents Later." Another young artist with a different aesthetic is Marlene Perez who did delicate ink drawings on her watercolored envelope.. Most of the work, however, comes from mature artists. Frequent winner of the Graceful Envelope Contest sponsored by the National Letter Carriers Assoc. is Gloria Eckart calligrapher created her envelope around a postage stamp.

Such a beautiful blog and fantastic art. I am just learning to sketch at my time of life in my sixties and my aim is to be able to do this kind of postcard art my friend. smiles. Would love a postcard to me in England from you with your great artistic touch if you would not mind. In return I would do the same even though only learning. HUGSxxxAnne
