PDXCC is a monthly gathering where participants make and share analog correspondence in the great mail art tradition of Ray Johnson and Anna Banana: art and conversation through the mail. This uniquely democratic, DIY art form incorporates writing, drawing, collage, rubber stamps, faux postage, decorative tape, typewriters – anything goes, as long as it goes through the mail. Hang out, skill share and send the glorious results through the mail. Monthly events hosted by the Portland chapter of the Correspondence Co-op and Niko Courtelis.

 

Basic materials will be on hand (scissors, glue sticks, envelopes\’85), but you’re encouraged to bring whatever materials fuel your creative spirit.

Free and open to the public, every third Tuesday of the month: 

6-8pm, March 17th

6-8pm, April 21st
