October seems to be a busier month for mail art than September. Maybe I’m not the only one who gets distracted by the end of summer?

Pictured here is work from Eni Ilis, Truman Bentley Jr, dewi, Russell Manning, Serse Luigetti and an advert for the Mail Art contest being run in Nanterre.

Oy vey it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. There’s something about the start of a new school year that really puts me behind on my paperwork.

Shown here is a variety of pieces from some of my oldest mail art friends, and a few newcomers. So here’s a shout out to Frieder Speck, Guido Vermeulen, frips, L. Hensley, Erin Fae, Stan Askew, Bruno Neiva and Kim JungYoun. I  hope that you are all enjoying the fall.

This certainly seems to be the week for mail art, for despite the fact that I posted an update a mere two days ago, I already have another pile of new incoming pieces! Currently featured on the wall is another piece from Ryosuke Cohen, as well as work from Jon Foster, Natalia Alekseeva, David Berube, dewi and my good friend Benjamin Maron.

Incoming mail August 2011 http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3012 http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3012#comments Sat, 13 Aug 2011 22:08:37 +0000 Kiera Pannell http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3012 Aug 2011 Incoming Mail Art

This month I’m taking a page out of Andy T Geezer’s book and making myself a ‘real wall‘. Now that my mail art callout is over, the amount of mail that has been arriving in my PO box has slowed down to a steady, managable stream. This means that I can put it up on my walls at home rather than endlessly cataloging and organizing it. Oh, and being me I had to come up with an interesting way of displaying it all – what do you think of my framing solution?

So far this month I’ve received mail art from frips, Ryosuke Cohen, Arttower, David Berube and Eni Ilis. Thanks ladies and gents!

Artistic Update http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3006 http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3006#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2011 20:20:14 +0000 Kiera Pannell http://www.thisisart.ca/?p=3006 Lately, as many of you may have noticed, I have been less of a web presence than I had been in the past. That would be because I have been getting involved in far more projects here at home in Montreal. Just this past Monday I gave a talk on DIY animation for the Greasy Goose salon, and I also have an exhibit of my drawings on display at Cafe 92º. (Pictures to follow) In addition to all that, I’ve just finished putting together a short animated film for the Montreal 60 second film festival. For anyone in/around Montreal, the screening is going to be held at the Rialto theater on September 16th and 17th.

Needless to say it’s been a bit of a busy month. I plan on continuing to respond to all mail art that I receive in the mail, but for the moment mail art has been placed on the back burner as I begin to focus on other projects.  And I start a new job in two weeks. Oy vey!
