International Mail Art Exhibition and Swap. Mail Art (aka Postal Art) is an art form where artists
exchange artworks and correspondence through the mail.
While all works received that fulfill the participation guidelines will be exhibited, we ask artists to
respond to the theme of “memory”. This may include, but is not limited to:
• Artists can send up to three artworks sized 4” x 6” (10.2 x 15.3 cm) as a postcard.
• Artworks must be sent through the postal system or hand-delivered. No online entries.
• ORIGINAL art works only (no photocopies).
• All artworks will be traded at the end of the exhibition, and you will receive a ‘swap’.
• All artworks will be displayed on our online gallery for one year. Your entry into this exhibition
signifies that you agree to the swap and having your work displayed online.
• Include on the back of your submission: Full name, Address, Country, and E-mail address, so
that you can receive a trade as well as updates on the exhibition. Optional – Medium and title of
Content stipulations: The Richmond Art Gallery offers a variety of public programs for participants of all
ages, and as such we will not exhibit work that is sexually explicit or is overtly violent. The Richmond Art
Gallery reserves the right to refuse artwork that is considered unsuitable in the context of these concerns.
