I’m hard at work getting ready for this weekend’s AARPEX event (Artistamp Artists Reunion & Philatelic Expo) in Seattle; RLD readers and/or mail artists should clear their Saturday schedule come on over to University House!
This promises to be an AMAZING event. Throughout the day I will be vending (as well as other artistamp creators); in the afternoon, Anna Banana (Vancouver BC) and EF Higgins (New York) will both give lectures on the history/lore of artistamps. And that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg; other artists include Cascadia Artpost, Triangle Post, Mailarta Queen of Poste and Teesha Moore.
In addition to putting together a suitcase full of new goodies (a new zine! multiple artistamp sheets!), I’ll be bringing along parts of my archive to show-n-tell. Won’t you come by and say hello? It would be fabulous to see you!
Details: AARPEX is free and open to the public on Saturday, November 10th, 2012. Hours run from 10:30am – 5:00pm.
