Mail Art Call!!

Hi Gang, I got this in my email tonight. Gail is someone I know online who lives in the small town of Trail in the BC interior. She has been working hard to promote mixed media/ altered art/ATCs in her town. It's really exciting that she has managed to generate enough enthusiasm that there will now be a show!

I know it would really mean alot to her to have support on this project so if you would like to do a Random Act of Kindness, or just want to participate because it interests you, please consider creating art for this show and sending it in. I would really love to see this show be successful for her just because she is a lovely person and when you live in a small town, something like this is a big deal.

Here is all the info and please note that this project has a long lead time-the deadline for submission is not till AUGUST so for you busy folks, there is LOTS of time to create something!

Any questions, please email Gail directly. I am sure she will be happy to hear from you! Thanks everyone and please let me know if you are participating-I would love to know!
