Mail Art Gallery Show

From August 8th to September 7th, The Firehouse Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona there will be a Postcard Art show, featuring mail art from all over the United States, possibly internationally. My postcard is just one of the 156 + items that has been sent in. Tonight is the opening. All the postcard is affordable, and the proceeds will go to benefit the gallery’s recent maintenance issues.

Phoenix’s local Art Collective have gathering in The Firehouse Gallery for over ten years. It’s been a place for artists, musicians, poets, comedians and other performers to create and show their talent.  As stated on the event’s Facebook page, many artists have gained confidence and respect by starting up in this venue.

Here’s some photos of the postcard submissions:

This was the postcard I had sent to the show. Took one of my drawings previously self-published in Babalon Babes issue four back in 2009. This pin-up is supposed to represent the astrology sign of everyone’s favorite moonchild, Cancer. Then I applied mixed mediums to get this result:

    Nicely written, Michele. Thanks for writing about the show and promoting the Firehouse Gallery. I’m a fan of your blog and your art now. Nice painting! I am in the show also, I submitted my painting, “The Sharpie Experiment”. I’m glad to be able to do something for The Firehouse, they’ve done a lot for me!
