This exhibition is intended to be a cultural exchange, where artists exhibit their works and receive new works as part of a swap. This shared enterprise is free from the rules of the art market, and yet we ask artists to respond to the theme of "economy" in all its forms.

Mail Art (aka Postal Art) is an art form where artists exchange artworks and correspondence through the mail to one another. To continue on in the tradition of this democratic art form, all entries received that follow the guidelines will be exhibited.

Guidelines:
* Artists can send up to 3 artworks (2D ONLY), sized 5" x 5" (120 x 120 mm).
* THERE IS NO PARTICIPATION FEE, EXCEPT FOR COST OF RETURN POSTAGE.
Please enclose $3 CDN (or equivalent) for return postage. Canadians, enclose a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope with Canadian stamps.
* ORIGINAL art works only (no photocopies).
* Theme of exhibition: Economy
* Artworks will be traded at the end of the exhibition, and you will receive a 'swap'.
* All artworks will be displayed on our online gallery for one year.
Your entry into this exhibition signifies that you agree to the swap and having your work displayed online.
* Include with your submission: Full name, Address, Country, Title of work, Medium, Year, E-mail address Address entries to:

Mail Art Exhibition,
Richmond Art Gallery,

Keep Coaldale Post Office Open

from : Richard Meade
I've heard from Bob and Kay Parker and they are receiving your mail art. Much thanks to all of you who are participating. Maybe I can help them to document the work being sent for an online show. KEEP SENDING YOUR ART! Please participat...e in this. I have a friend and fellow artist I've known since high school that lives in a rural area of Colorado. The government has placed their post office on a hit list for possible closing. Please send your mail art, a doodle, a photograph, a postcard, something, anything that is art related to the address below.

Keep Coaldale Post Office Open
c/o Kay Parker
P.O. Box 147
Coaldale,
CO 81222
USA

Sorry there will be no catalog of all the art sent because Coaldale is small and has no money. But out of the kindness of your heart you can send art their way and hopefully prove to the government their post office deserves to stay open. It's their only connection to the outside world. Please spread the word. Thanks.
