Mail art from the South African artist Cuan Miles is always a special treat in my p.o. box. The recent envelope and its contents (see below) was no exception. But, I was wondering why I had not received a piece for the Pink Mail Art Show until it finally arrived yesterday. It took nearly a month to make it from South Africa to California. Perhaps that is appropriate as it is the pink mail art that has traveled the farthest.
Come see Cuan Miles’ pink mail art along with the 400 pieces of original, postcard-size art — all sent through the mail. The art was made by artists of all ages from all around the world including 21 states and 34 countries. There are small paintings, prints, collages, drawings and a multitude of mixed media works — and the theme they all have in common is they are all pink.
The opening reception is on Friday, November 4, from 6-9 p.m. The show will remain on exhibit through November 30.
