Another Mail Art Exhibit - Finland

Details about the next mail art exhibit I am promoting are here and reprinted below:

The mailartprojects blog has all kinds of opportunities to participate in mail art exhibits.

Here are details on the Finland exhibit. I'm 1/4 Finnish which is why I want to participate in this one. My Finnish quarter rules the wimpy Swede-Norskee half. The other 1/4 we don't talk about.

Hello all artists all over the world !

You are kindly invited to congratulate Finland. Next year 2017 Finland is celebrating 100 years of independency. The whole year will be full of celebrations all over the country.

One way to congratulate celebrating Finland is to participate in this mail art project. I wish you want to be a part of team which is making this exhibition which will be in November 2017. The exhibition will be in Mainlibrary Arkki, Pälkäne, Finland.

Size is european standard A4, ONLY horizontal.
Every participant can send max. three art works to this project.
Add also your name, address and e-mail address. All information and the documentation will be sent only by e-mail.
Please, send with stamps in an envelope by snail mail. Do not bend.

No participation fee, no jury, no return.
Please, remember that in public library visit people of every age.

DEADLINE 31.8.2017  (August 31, 2017)

It would be a pleasure if you want to invite also all your artist friends to this project. It would be wonderful to have the whole gallery room full of congratulations.

Hundred years is something very unique. I will send the next independency celebration invitation only when there will be hundred years more.

Please send your artistic congratulations to:
Anja Mattila-Tolvanen
Jahkoontie 70
FI-36600 Pälkäne

Waiting for your response.
Thank you!
This envelope has nothing to do with the Finnish mail art call. It's just filing the space incase I don't get around to sending anything to Finland. My granddaughter did the watercolor which I turned into an envelope I thought the stamps were nice - but think the clown's talk bubble is a very unfortunate miss. There were two nicer envelopes inside and this was just a wrapper. I was using up vintage stamps, but did not want multiples, so the inner envelopes were not mailable. I have no idea if I took pictures of them. Dang.

  1. I scrolled in a rush to see if those were koi. The images are soothing and remind me of fish in a pond beneath a shade tree. :)
