Art Blog: It MADE it!

A week or so ago, I very timidly got on the USPS post office website to see if something was delivered. The confirmation said:
“Label/Receipt Number: 0404 9420 9410 1309 2569
Status: Delivered
Your item was delivered at 7:04 AM on January 5, 2009 in SWAINSBORO, GA 30401”

HOORAY! It made it! I have been wanting to talk about this for weeks. However, I wanted to make sure it would really happen. I saw a call for entries for a show titled “The Art of Communication”. The piece artists submit to the show had to be sent sans any packaging. In other words, it had to be the MAIL. I have shown snippets of what I made, but never explained. Well, here is the explanation!

Sheree, I went to the site of the gallery and looked at the whole looks really good! and the gallery has a rich track record of themed exhibitions. How did you find out about this space?

You know. I am subscribed to so many things, I can't remember where I found the call for entries. However, I did my research too. It is a cool little gallery. That is why I did this. I have been emailing back and forth with them and they are so nice. This whole experience was just plain fun to do. Also, I got such a kick out of mailing it and then seeing it online in the gallery.

That art bubble is so fun!

I looked at the quilt via the link you sent. That is a true work of art---so beautiful---and so much labor involved in that stitching!
