Mail Me Art at The Framers Gallery – London

A while ago I saw a post on my Facebook page about Darren Di Lieto’s  Mail Me Art  project and decided to apply to be a part of it. Being a Brit by birth, I was excited to have the opportunity of showing my art in the UK! Envelopes by artists from all over the world will be exhibited at The Framers Gallery in London, UK,  from 30th July – 3rd August 2013. A book will be published with images of all the envelopes and will be available on Amazon. The envelopes are all for sale and proceeds will go to support the following charities: Water Aid, Teenage Cancer Trust and Animal Aid.

I finally finished my envelope and put it in the mail today. When I took it to the post office yesterday to get stamps the mail clerks were very interested in it, I know them well as I am there most days dropping off packages for our photography and art book business A&D Books. One clerk had a great time flexing it back and forth as she decided that it could go by regular mail. I held my breath figuring it would get a lot worse treatment on the way. It held up to the test well. So here’s waiting to see that it arrives safely!
