Mail Art [SIV22] 

Studio Place Arts is having three art openings on eachof its floors this Friday, April 27th in Barre Vermont. One of the floors will be devoted toitems that have been shipped through the post, thereby transforming themselves into mail art.

Gabrielle Dietzeland Delia Robinson have been sending mail art for decades. When theywere neighbors, they sent each other strange things in the mail whichthey never spoke of: dog toys, children's shoes, afrench press lid.

The trick is to mail the object WITHOUT anenvelope or box. It only becomes "art" if it travels through the postwithout protective covering.  But be careful!! Once you begin the rebellious and thrilling act of mailing flip flops, chess games, birds' nests and half eaten muffins, it can become both addictive and competitive!

The Mail Art Show opening thisFriday at SPA will include many objects that Delia and Gabrielle havesent to each other as well as many items mailed from all over theworld.
