Post Exchange




Good evening,
I’m writing to let you know about our Call For Artists 2016, currently kicking off this Monday, February 22nd, in the hopes that you may be encouraged to send word on to any artists that follow the Mail Art Projects blog. We are hoping to fill our limited roster for the next five sessions.
Post Exchange is a collaborative project that strives to prompt creative play and encourage interest in the arts through the exchange of mailed postcards. Every 2 months between February and November, participants receive a card to decorate with a partner, mailing the card back and forth in a game of art tic-tac-toe. The finished cards are lively and experimental.

Please find attached our official Flyer (in .jpg and .pdf) and selected images of work from past submissions. We’d be thrilled if you can let your readers know about our event.
More information and images can be found on our website, PostExchange.cards

Or visit our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Tumblr.
Best wishes and I look forward to answering any questions you may have about our Call For Artists 2016!

Best,
Janette Anne Santos
Marketing & Outreach Coordinator
