Mail Art Fundraiser: The 2014 Edition!

 

You are invited to VANL-CARFAC’s 2nd Annual Mail Art Fundraiser! If you participated in this event last year, you already know what a great opportunity it is to get some beautiful, crazy, quirky, moving and/or generally fabulous pieces of art; and to give your own as well!

Want to know how it works? :

Step 1: Private Message or E-mail Hillary Winter (hillarywinter@yahoo.ca) your mailing address and donation amount (Suggested $10.00).  She will be taking addresses until Saturday, March 15. (More details below)

Step 2: Each person is responsible for creating three small original (mail size) artworks. (More details below)

Step 3: Once your artwork is complete, you just take a picture of your completed work and email it to hillarywinter@yahoo.ca and you’ll receive a message/ e-mail with 3 addresses where you will be expected to mail your artworks. The artworks must be mailed NO LATER than April 15th (Please!!)

Step 4: You will receive 3 artworks in the mail from 3 different artists!

Details:

Donation:  Donations can be made by drop-off (to the VANL office), email transfer, regular mail or through the PAYPAL button below. Whatever works best for you. However, please let me know when you send your address how you would like to donate.  I will reply to each message, so if you do not get a reply please contact me again (through facebook if you think e-mail isn’t working).   All money raised will go to support VANL-CARFAC (http://www.vanl-carfac.com)

Sizes: 3 1/2″ x 5″ (Standard postcard ) and maximum 11″ x 14″ . Mailing rates will vary, depending on the weight of the work and its destination.

Materials: Be creative. Drawing, painting, sewing, photography, sound art, collage!

Note: If you do participate in this event please honor the commitment and be sure to mail your three works. Last year left us with a couple of people not receiving all three of their expected pieces.   SO, this year, we are asking participants to send a quick pic of your finished pieces and send it in to us, at which point we’ll give you the three addresses where you send your work–which should take care of that problem.  This fundraiser is based on a collective act of good faith, and the organizers cannot be held responsible for art that isn’t sent.  However, we also have a few participants making extra so hopefully no one should be left empty handed.

And Please invite your friends!

 

(suggested: $10.00)
