Mail art work by György Galántai, 1981
This is an open call for mail art from around the UK and the world.
Mail Art: E17 is the first stop on a moving 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 curating the exhibition in E17* and looking for curators for future exhibitions.
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, 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 2011. The exhibition opens this Wednesday 18th January with my mail art work, and, as more mail art submissions come in, will be added to.

*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.
