What happened is this, or so I surmise - Someone chose a couple of the entries from the Mail Art exhibit that were in a box at the Coffee shop being offered to the public for free, to take home and display. They could donate to an animal rescue organization or not as they chose. AND that person, had dinner at Joe's Inn (our local) and left their choices behind. Boo Hoo, they are probably really sad about this. I have no idea who they could be, but I'll keep these safe and if anyone ever mentions to me that they lost their lovely choices, I can give them back.
What a successful exhibit! My most successful, and made so by ALL of the participants. Oh happy heart!

Size: 23 cm x 32 cm / 9" x 12.75"
The narrative is delightful! I can't believe it missed being in the exhibit, but I'm going to take it round to the coffee shop so they can see it.
Doesn't it look like this was mailed on 2 July at 4pm?
Help me out here, if I'm reading this incorrectly.
If this is true, then this has been on it's way for a long time. I hope that people have enjoyed it along the way.
Thank you so much, merci beaucoup, Christine. This is such fun and so beautifully done. Brava!

How long has it been on it's journey?
And why did the USPS think it needed to be in a protective envelope?
Who sent it? I can't read that information clearly, nor can I read the cancellation date on the stamp.
If anyone can help me decipher this, I'd appreciate that.
Thank you, Uli Grohmann, from Münster, Germany, for giving me the correct name and address for this submission.

I went to the venue today to see, in person, what an imaginative way that the work was installed. It was better than I'd hoped. The work is in the front window and in a prominent display inside the shop.
Well done, thanks to all who sent in Mail Art, and the installation team. Excellent show, which will get lots of viewers.
It's so exciting to know that the exhibit has such good publicity.

The photo was taken in front of the railway station in Groningen, the Netherlands.
It reminds me of the first time I arrived in Amsterdam and was stunned by the number of bicycles parked in front of Centraal Station. Wow! was all I could say, and here I see it again in this photo. Thanks for the memories, Magda.

Can you find your work?
Thanks to Tammy and Lauren for helping make an idea a reality.

You can see how involved this card it, questions to be answered, information of interest, and it arrived intact though the center part of the front was bent up like a pop-up book.
Perhaps, Dean, you can let us know if anything came off of the front.
Thanks for this additional entry.

The title is: Marie's bicycle. The technique is quite nice. I hope Poul will let us know more about it.
Thanks for sending this Mail Art, Poul.

Thank you, Dean, for your always interesting Mail Art.
Marian did this wonderful pen and ink drawing of a bicycle. She covered her card with plastic to protect it and it made it safely to us from Ireland. You can see more of Marian's work on her web site HERE.
Love her embroidered birds!
Thanks for sending your Mail Art, Marian.
Thanks, Mariana, for sending more Mail to us.
Thanks for the card and the memory, Heleen.
Thanks, Terry, for this sweet Mail Art. Encouraging future bicycle racers?
I enjoy the way she melds the images and the text and adds her playful dots.
Thanks, B Kapp, for continuing to support this exhibit.
Thanks for sending your Mail Art, Tomoe.
Thank you, Richard, for always amusing us! We love your submissions.
Thanks, Eva for submitting more Mail Art.
Thanks for this entry, Michael.
Thanks, Dan, for participating.

On the reverse of this card, with a map of Virginia, USA, and an extraordinary cyclist, is a note about her getting a new bicycle and her adventure with it.
It's Duck egg blue with a wicker basket. Lovely sounding.
The postage stamp was adhered to the outside of the clear envelope. Clever move.
You can see, even in this scan, how precisely she cut the image of the cyclists.
Thanks, Gina, for these terrific entries.

I like the way Marina took a publicity card for a bicycle company Mustang, with model named Dagmar, and altered the wheels. Cleverly using postage stamps, she creates a sense of movement. I really like this.
This is the first Mail Art from Denmark. I was happy to see the postmark as we were in Copenhagen, many years ago on our honeymoon. We enjoyed the city very much. We drove to Helsingor and stopped at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. We saw a Magritte exhibit there. Ah, Memories.
Thanks, Marina for the Mail Art and the memories.
I think that for the most part, the race circuits will be fairly flat, but there are a few areas where the riders will have to go up or down hills. Riding high, indeed.
Thanks B, for another piece.
