Last month mixed media Mail Art happened in a big way. Robert Burch, glass, metal and graphic artist came to the shop and created a truly unique series for our CSA. A few years back he gifted me a roll of Player Piano Roll. The perforated holes much like an early computer punch card allowed the player piano to play music without an operator. The treasured item rested safely on a shelf in the shop until he showed up fresh from the School of Visual Art in NYC to explore some traditional print with a fresh perspective. A wonderful collaboration ensued and he produced a killer limited edition for our CSA subscribers. As past featured artist Deborah Jones said, “Love it — especially the on-purpose askew fold and that fascinating translucent paper with those marks on it. I am reminded once again of how diverse artists are; their vision and execution, their treatment of form and content…. Can’t wait for quarter #3.”
What was old (player piano paper, vintage handset type…) becomes new and then back again. This only happens with your support, encouragement and participation. I am very grateful for these opportunities.
