Easy now dudes – this is an open call for mail art from around the UK and the world!
‘Mail Art: E17′ is the first stop on a touring exhibition of mail art from artists and illustrators across the globe, housed on this leg at Walthamstow Wine Club in Walthamstow, E17, London.
I am seeking art on any subject and in any form with the one stipulation that the art relates to a mailable or mailed form. For example, that could be art on jiffy bags, envelopes, brown paper, packages, it could be 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 me at mail[at]marielouiseplum.com or send your work directly the Mail Art:E17, c/o Walthamstow Wine, 56-60 Grove Road, London, E17 9BN. The deadline for submissions is ongoing, however, for this leg of the exhibition artwork should be mailed through by May 25th 2012.
The exhibition will move on from Walthamstow to Cardiff in June, for that is where the second leg of the Magical Mail Art Mystery Tour will be housed, at our new home, The Printhaus. Contemporary British artist Spike Dennis is curating the exhibition in Cardiff. We are still looking for curators for future exhibitions, so if you’d like to try your hand at curating a leg of the Mail Art tour, please get in touch by emailing mail[at]marielouiseplum.com.

*The reason I am exhibiting the first leg in E17 is because it’s a vibrant, art-filled community full of lovely people who are well into lovely things! Check out Stowscene to learn more about us.
