Above, Mail Art by Chetan Kumar
Our magical travelling Mail Art exhibition has now moved on to The Printhaus in Cardiff. This leg of the mail art tour is being curated by the very lovely Spike Dennis of Spikeworld. Check out how to get involved below >>>
“OPEN CALL: MAIL ART CARDIFF -This is an open call for mail art from around the UK and the world.
Mail Art: E17 was the first stop of a touring exhibition of mail art from artists and illustrators across the globe. Following a lengthy and successful exhibition at Walthamstow Wine Club in east London the exhibition has now made its way to The Printhaus in Cardiff, Wales.
Submissions received during the first exhibition period in London will be displayed at The Printhaus from Tuesday 10 July until Sunday 22 July 2012. In addition to this we are now seeking new submissions to add to the exhibition which will be exhibited at the Printhaus when received and added to the collection of mail art to be exhibited at further venues later in the year.
We are seeking art on any subject and in any form with the one stipulation which is that the art relates to a mailable or mailed form. For example, that could be art on jiffy bags, envelopes, brown paper, packages, art using stamps, printed or franked labels, mail stickers, stencils or mail delivery cards. You can draw, paint, cut, stick and glue, cut-out, construct, scribble or print. Anything goes.
If you would like to take part in the exhibition please email mail[at]marielouiseplum.com or send your work directly to:
Mail Art: Cardiff
c/o Cardiff School of Art & Design

The deadline for submissions is ongoing, however, please do not post work for this leg of the exhibition any later than the 20 July 2012.
The exhibition opens on Tuesday 10 July 2012. There will be an open evening on Friday 13 July 20102 from 6.00 – 9.00pm at The Printhaus so do please come and join us for a drink.
