Mail Art

Everyone loves mail. Right? As long as it doesn't involve a bill or an advertisement. It's such a nice feeling to reach into your mail box and receive a handwritten note, and it is even better when there is a bit of original artwork involved. After doing some experimental gelatin printmaking last week, I was trying to think of a way to put the prints to use. I decided to pick up some blank postcards at the post office and attach some of the prints to the cards.
Postcards are always an integral part of an artist's promotion when they have a show. Last spring the children in my after school art class made a drawing directly on a postcard. The reverse side of the card had the date and time for an art reception at school featuring their work. They excitedly told me when their parents received their card in the mail.
