Convocatoria mail art tema Synergy org Lonna Kelly Studio ( Pawling- USA)

SYNERGY in the Days of COVID
This call for mail art is open to everyone from all over the world, there is no jury, and no fee. Art must be received through the mail. Both flat and 3-dimensional work will be accepted. All pieces will be displayed.
Please respond to this theme and how it affects you or your community in the days of pandemic:     
The project is "Synergy": the benefit that results when two or more agents work together to achieve something either one couldn't have achieved on its own.   It's the concept of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
Please write on the piece or include: name of artist, address, phone, email and website.
All work must be original and created recently. Work must be no larger than 8.5”x11”. All styles and esthetics are welcome. The content of submissions should be appropriate for all viewers.
A digital catalog will be available to all contributing artists
All submissions must be received by July 15, 2020. Work will be exhibited virtually at (a website recently created to show digital responses to bi-monthly prompts to create and share work related to life during COVID) and a pop-up will be a post-COVID goal.
We will practice safe mail protocols – even though we know mail is not on the list of easily transmitting germs/virus.
Mail work to:
Lonna Kelly Studio, LLC
28 Sans Souci Drive
Pawling, NY 12564
Lonna Kelly, photographer, was inspired by Ray Johnson to create an ongoing mail art series. Every year since 2016 Kelly has printed one of her photographs as a postcard, handwriting on the card’s front, Modify and Mail to…adding her address. The cards are given away, left for people to fin. d in stores, galleries, and even mailed.
