Feb 28 – March 11

Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 5 – 7pm

This collaborative mail art project began as a semester-long project in which the artist printed two dozen stationary kits with letterpress and silkscreen, which were sent to twenty-four volunteers across the country and beyond. Each package contained vague and open instructions for the recipient to get creative with the contents and send their work back with the expectation that their response would be displayed in some way. This fall a second prompt was sent to another group of volunteers - a small envelope reading only “Make a letter for someone you love. Then accidentally send it to me.” Anything and everything contained in the returned envelopes is displayed.

Sophia Lawrence(she/her) is a multi-media artist from rural L'nuewa'ki (Antigonish), Nova Scotia. Her work plays often with communication, introspection, and humour. She uses a blend of text and images to dance between the fanciful and the existential. She works most often in drawing and writing but has recently taken an interest in mail art and puppetry.
