The July issue of The Postal Press will be about personal transitions & 'starting over'. It seems to me that many people are in the process of reinventing themselves, their careers, and their relationships right now & I'm looking for mail art that illustrates that journey. Consider imagery like stairs, doors/portals, windows -- or dusk (the transition between day and night), a horizon (the visual line between water & sky, or land & sky) -- or ghosts (entities caught between life and death). Think outside the box. Please submit mail art of any shape, size and medium to:
Seren -- Transitions Art Call
PO Box 3246
Redondo Beach, CA 90277
All art will be documented on my blog: www.serendipityart.squarespace.com and some of it will be included in issues of The Postal Press (specifically the next issue, which has a projected print date of July 23, 2009). There is no final due date for this call.
The July issue of The Postal Press will be about personal transitions and 'starting over' and GREEN and PURPLE seems to be the colors of renewal for me. I am looking for mail that uses green and/or purple to express a sense of newness/rebirth/reawakening. Please submit mail art of any shape, size & medium to:

One artist or designer from each state in the USA will represent a different medium, bridging the gap between the traditional fine art world and other arts disciplines, including craft, design, architecture, performance art, etc. I am interested in these intersections and how they translate into everyday life. This show will not only represent the importance of all art disciplines, but will also stress the importance of all working artists regardless of their location.

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists.
Snail mail only please.
