Tamara Jelaca, the organiser of the exhibition and founder of Droitwich Mail Art, explains: ‘After a very successful 2017 exhibition, with a large number of submissions arrived and my fear that gallery space allocated to the project won’t be enough big, I am glad to announce that the new Droitwich Mail Art project is on now. The theme is Self Portrait [past, present, future and wannabe self] and the artists are invited to look at their mirrors (real or imagined) and create the picture of themselves, as they are or wish to be, or how they looked once upon the time.’

3rd International Mail Art exhibition in Droitwich


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.

Let’s Do Shakespeare! – Mail Art 2016 Call for Artists

logo 1Let’s Do Shakespeare!

2016 is the year in which we will mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. A series of programmes, exhibitions and creative activities throughout United Kingdom and in the rest of the world will celebrate the legacy of famous playwright.

However, Droitwich Spa is connected with Shakespeare in a much more profound way. John Heminges who was, together with Henry Condell, the editor of Shakespeare’s First Folio, was born in the town in 1566. He was Shakespeare’s close associate and an actor who was, allegedly, the first Falstaff ever in The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Droitwich Arts Network invites the artists to send us their mail art inspired by Shakespeare, his plays, main characters, John Heminges and the world of 16th century theatre.

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.
