Mail Art, by various artists

SAM_0325

An art and design project called Mail Art has just held its second international exhibition.

Set up in 2013 by father and son Kevin and James Gillen, the non-profit project aims to build a community of artists worldwide through encouraging people to send artwork in the post.

The art received is then displayed in physical gallery exhibitions, and digitally on Mail Art’s Facebook gallery.

The project’s last exhibition took place at the Creative Quarter in Folkestone, Kent.

James Gillen, co-founder at Mail Art, says: “Our ethos is to continually build an encouraging community of artists worldwide, inclusive of all levels of artistic education.”

For information on how to submit Mail Art, visit the group’s Facebook page.
