|Thursday Co-Op Meeting
There is always lots to share and then there is show-and-tell
and food....and a little wine..
not a bad way to spend an evening.
In fact, many of us look forward to this every month.
Miss JH--Red Letter Day and the fabulous Alice S sharing a moment.
|FRIDAY -- the Tables of Content show opened at the Berkeley Museum
with a noon talk by Robert Warner.
A bunch of the Co-op members trooped over to hear the lecture
and look at all those tables of content...
The thirteen boxes Ray Johnson gave to Bob Warner filled with all kinds of things...
Some think Ray Johnson was the father of mail art
|...including loads of envelopes he worked on and saved...
and mail Johnson received...
|Bob Warner (left) with a table of contents of boxes...can you see all those envelopes?
And there is JH herself on the far right....I understand she will be writing a blog post on this event so check her blog Red Letter Day in the next week or so to see it.
Warner with audience and some of the contents of the boxes on the tables.
Very interesting talk - I was told a video of Werner's talk will be posted on the museum website so you can see it for yourselves....
(that would be today)
WHO would ever think of deconstruct an airplane and MAIL THE PIECES?????
Claire Healey & Sean Cordeiro: Par Avion (American debut)
This was really amazing -- I have never seen anyone mail pieces of plane before.
And from Australia to San Francisco. They mailed them directly to the gallery.
Frey Norris Gallery
They are selling the whole set of mail art plane pieces if any of you want to buy them!
I'd sure like one but you have to buy the entire set.
