The seventh annual Mail Art Show opens today at Courtyard Gallery-attachment0

“Anything Goes — Everything Shows” is the tagline for The Courtyard Gallery‘s annual Mail Art Show, which runs from Saturday, Sept. 15 through Sunday, Oct. 27.

According to a press release, the exhibition (now in its seventh year) is “an uncensored free style mail art show. Mail art is art that uses the postal system as a medium. Mail artists typically exchange ephemera in the form of illustrated letters; zines; rubberstamped, decorated, or illustrated envelopes; artist trading cards; postcards; artistamps; faux postage; mail-interviews; naked mail; friendship books, decos and three-dimensional objects.” All submissions will be shown. The gallery is located at the Phil Mechanic Building, 109 Roberts St.

An exhibition opening takes place on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 6-9 p.m. Free. Photo: stitched envelop from Arizona.
