Celebrating the Museum of Motherhood’s First Birthday

FeMail loves to travel. Our mail art travels and often, we travel to make FeMail with others. Just last year we were in Manhattan at the Museum of Motherhood.

Back in October 2011, FeMail trekked in to New York City to lead our Daily-Ness of Art workshop as part a day-long conference called Motherhood and Creativity: Creative Leaps of Faith at the Museum of Motherhood. We made some new FeMail friends in Amy Eagan and Rachel Klein, who’s mail art we have posted here. Joy Rose, the eloquent, brilliant and brave M.O.M. director and official firestarter for all things motherhood in Manhattan has spent this long year filling up the M.O.M. calendar with great events, conferences, classes and art events for the parenting community in New York. The Museum is making a bold footprint for motherhood, textured with scholarly works and art events. Not only can you stop there for a clean place to play with your child, you will be challenged to consider how American culture has represented and endorsed (or not) mothers in the last 100 years. FeMail hopes that the Museum will continue to grow and expand. Pay the Museum a visit when you are in Manhattan and consider making a donation there to keep the doors open for continued discussion and scholarly debate that expands our understanding and representation of motherhood.

Here are two cards Karen and I made in honor of Joy Rose- she is so much fun to make art about!

Hello Mail Art Fans!

Karen and I have been so busy making mail art and all the other things we do, we have not been around to fill you in on our news.

In May, Suzi presented FeMail at the Museum of Motherhood conference at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.
The highlight of the day was meeting and making art with Joy Rose, the founder of the Museum of Motherhood and bloggers Julia Beck, Amy Oztan, and Lindsey Reed Maines.

We began an ongoing project with the Museum of Motherhood (M.O.M.) to create a mail art archive from influential mothers to be used for fund raising for M.O.M.
We will present again in the fall, in Minnesota. Stay tuned.

Right now, in mid-June, Karen is in an art residency on the top of Mount Washington, at Bascom Lodge.
Take a deep breath!
Her sketch club meets up there on Tuesdays at 5pm. Karen spends 2 days every week this month, making art and exploring the terrain of this landmark in Massachusetts.

Here are both sides of her mail art sent from the heights of Mount Greylock.

I am shuttling between the Laundry Line and Manhattan and my kitchen table where summer is just beginning.
There is so much good cooking here at FeMail.
We can’t wait to tell you about it.

But first, gotta pick some strawberries, buy some stamps and celebrate the Solstice!

Hugs to you all.
Find our address on this site and send us a card.
Our online gallery of mail art we receive will be premiering this summer.

All our sticky fingered love from your FeMail Sisters,

Suzi and Karen
