Thirteen members recently participated in our second annual snail mail print & paper exchange around the optional theme of Architecture. We encouraged participants to create their pieces using any type of technique and format. No size or material restrictions as long as the items could be sent through the mail. The prints created are wonderful and varied, in style, approach, and medium, and made for a really fun exchange. Keep en eye out for future exchanges and new themes!
