MinXus Mail Bag: Give my regards to Flux Fest from Skybridge Studios (North Manchester, Indiana, USA)

Mail-art by Skybridge Studios (North Manchester, Indiana, USA)

Mink Ranch regular Miss Lisa dropped us a card (a bit weathered by the postal system) reminding us of her wonderful textile mail-art call as well as the recently concluded Chicago Flux Fest – an annual event that took place this year February 21-24 in the Windy City. We found some links to the event with pics by the Bennetts and Cecil Touchon. Heavens! Victoria and Svetlana came all the way from Russia!

Each year we make a solemn pledge to attend the Chicago event. The the Ice Age descends upon Upstate NY (winter). We imagine being trapped in whiteout blizzards somewhere between Buffalo and Chicago or anything you can imagine happening to a plane.

But next year, yes, next year….

    Keith made arrangements for the “Textile Mail Art Call” to be archived at the gallery where it was shown. Flu sidelined me this year — Midwest winters can be so brutal.

    A case of the Flu-xus, eh?

    Glad you were part of the show. February is to winter as pits are to peaches.

    Keith, now there’s a man…
