The Open Studio wants your mail art

Posted on Thursday February 20, 2014

SUDBURY – Mail art was created as a means of moving vast and frequent amounts of art through the mail around the world, with an emphasis on anti-commercial aesthetics.

Cambrian’s College’s Open Studio is hosting a Mail Art exhibition as a way to reach out beyond the classroom. Leesa Bringas, the Studio’s technician, notes submissions have arrived from across the globe.


“So far we’ve received mail from Japan, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, England, the United States, Windsor, as well as Sudbury,” she says. “We will also be including work that has been hand-delivered to The Open Studio, as well as works that have been created in our do-it-yourself space.”


“We’re looking for postcards, letters, envelope art, collages, stamp art, buttons, artist-made books, photocopy art, CDs, DVDs (containing music, sound art, poetry, video art, etc.), mixed media works, and experimental bits and pieces,” Bringas continues. “We also encourage collaboration between artists.”


As this is an unjuried exhibit, The Open Studio cannot pay artists’ fees; however, it will provide paper documentation. Submissions will be returned only if sufficient postage is provided or arrangements are made to pick up work. All works that are not picked up will remain in the archive and may be exhibited at future exhibits.


The Open Studio is accepting mail art now through April 4. Send or drop off as much art as you’d like. For more information, please contact Bringas. There is no fee to enter this exhibit.
