In collaboration with Lone Star Letter Writers, Art Room announces a new call for entry for the virtual exhibition, Correspondence. The exhibit will celebrate the art of letter writing. Curated by Lone Star Letter Writers, the show will consist of 20 to 50 pieces of original art from submissions by artists, letter writers, collectors, philatelist, and poets. The selected pieces of work in the show will be no larger than the maximum dimensions to send a letter with one Forever Stamp (6 1/8 inches x 11 1/2 inches). All submissions will be sent by mail so postmarks, postage, and the wear and tear of transport can be displayed as well.

In the digital age when we can send a message across the globe in seconds, Correspondence aims to showcase the unique and noteworthy ways to send art by post. The exhibition will be on display via Art Room's website. The artworks received in the mail for the show will be artfully photographed for the virtual presentation. A physical exhibition is forthcoming.

• Submissions Due to Art Room: August 1, 2020
• Virtual Exhibition Dates: August 13 – September 12, 2020
• Virtual Opening Reception: August 13, 2020 | 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
