Mail Art Exhibition “Connection is Made…”

by Tamara Jelaca

The idea of Mail Art Exhibition came to me for two main reasons. The first one because I always liked the idea of exchanging art and connecting with other artists. The second reason was absolutely perfect format of mail art that I was considering as ideal to make a connection between artists in Droitwich Spa and a twin town Voiron in France. That was only the beginning.

Droitwich Arts Network invited the artists from Voiron, to participate in a Mail Art Exhibition during Salt Fest 2015. French artists sent us their fantastic art postcards, so we wished to spread the word and have even more artists from around the world. Now, we are proud to show mail art that arrived from UK, Germany, Finland, Serbia, Italy, Spain, Norway, Greece, USA, Austria, Brazil, Australia… There are 47 artists from 19 countries with 61 postcard in total.

Mail Art is a great way for artists to introduce their work and to let their work interact with public through the visual and/or literary expression. It takes so little as a postal stamp on the art work to send a strong message and to make people connected, heard and understood.

A big ‘THANK YOU’ to all artists who send us their mail art.

I want to thank also to Droitwich Arts Network for a great support and enthusiasm. Without you Mail Art in Droitwich would not happen.
