Art Every Day Month: November 23

WADC Envelope, originally uploaded by Leah Virsik.

I’m super tired and I didn’t particularly feel like writing tonight. I’m trying to clean up a bit. My sister and her partner are coming after Thanksgiving and I was really hoping to get get some art hung. I have these boxes of papers I was going through to try and consolidate them. It drives me crazy, like I should have organized it better the first time around. But then there are also treasures I find too so there’s the good and the bad…

This treasure is from Rick Tharp. Jill Prestigiacomo wrote “Hi” on the back. I remember really enjoying it and asking her about it. I remember her saying it was something that he did but I can’t remember much else.

One of the highlights of a trip to Washington years ago was to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. They had an envelope contest there. I was so impressed that the stamps were not all in the right hand corner. The contest is called the Graceful Envelope Contest and is now put on by the Washington Calligraphers Guild. There are some beautiful envelopes there.

Writing this reminds me of the National Collage Society. They have an annual postcard show which I found out about while perusing  Carol Parks website after reading The Creative Entrepreneur by Lisa Sonora Beam.
