Peace, Love and Art from Chicago by Shellie Lewis, 14.8 x 21 cm, paper and object collage on recycled food box.Lyubomyr Tymkiv is an artist seeking to hold a collage art gallery show in Lviv, Ukraine and he is requesting submissions to curate.
The art needs to be donated because it is for a non-commercial event and not able to be mailed back to artists. The size needs to be 14.8 x 21 cm with an interest to “Show Your Vision” in collage and assemblage using “newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, other portions of artwork or texts, photographs or found objects glued to a piece of paper or canvas.” Per the host: “Only original art works are to be accepted.” Art needs to arrive before September 1, 2014.
I went through my paper scraps and magazine images and made this collage today. I used a cereal box with YES! Paste bookbinding glue and some E6000 epoxy glue. I will be mailing this artwork soon. Please let other artists and members of the mail art community know about this wonderful event and that they are welcome to mail art to support this exhibition.
