Mail-art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Veteran mail-artist, former Ray Johnson correspondent and now Mink Ranch regular Richard Canard is as faithful with missives as he is inventive. We never cease to be amazed. We are now in the process of documenting work he has sent us going back to the late summer.

We are proud of our archives, of course. IUOMA-Ning has a Richard Canard Fan Club where Richard’s work is also shared in a sort of permanent, online exhibition.
