Okay folks, you've been waiting and here it is. I left the 4th Dimension for a little road trip down to Cornelius, Oregon to see the improbable Postcard display held inside the Cornelius Post Office! Ever heard of a Mail Art show inside an actual Post Office? That's right - no one has! This was the unprecedented project and the bold breakthrough of Postmaster Kerry Jeffrey. It was a beautiful thing to behold! Kerry himself is a very likable fellow and is quite enthusiastic about the "Art of the Postcard" - as the show was called. A lot of "places" postcards and a lot of Mail Art. The gorgeous display went over quite well with the locals and the newspapers there did some large and well written articles to boot. I liked Kerry the moment I met him and we really had a good time discussing various artists and their works as well as postcards from all over the world. Kerry is something like a veritable Folk Hero now to Mail Artists and Postcard lovers!
I saw many works from Artists I have traded with and knew - like Jennifer Zoellner (top right) - Bernhard Zilling (top middle) - Katerina Nikoultsou (bottom left) and Keith Buchholz (bottom right). I also saw many from Artists I would like to know, but for some reason never got to - like Pistol Pete (middle bottom row) - nice one Pete. And Fabio Sassi (top left). The atmosphere had a merry International Artistic charge to it - even as the Post Office carried on business as usual. Kerry managed to pull off this magnificent Mail Art caper without a hitch and for that, The 4th Dimension salutes you old boy! Bravo! You can find out more of this momentous occasion here: Art of the Postcard. Thank you for the hospitality Kerry - I had a blast!
