Last week, Karen was one of the featured artists in Die Formmeister: The Masters of The Form at Gallery 51 in North Adams.
We love celebrations of art.
The moon came out too.
The show includes art from our FeMail archive, postal art that Karen has sent to Suzi.
Here are our friends enjoying the art.
here is what curator Valeria Frederici said:
The work of Karen Arp-Sandel implies an intimate reflection over the feminine universe.
Yup. I agree!
If you are in North Adams during October, please stop in at Gallery 51.

A Postal Art extravaganza!
Karen and I led a morning mail art workshop up at PRESS in North Adams, MA on September 15. Our pal, Melanie Mowinski, MCLA professor and PRESS founder and fearless leader of fun with letterpress on her Vandercook, opened the workshop with a tour of Postal Pinacotheca. This exhibit of mail art sent between six female artists across the globe captivated and inspired us. Melanie had prepared PRESS collage kits for our participants that were stuffed with cuts from the many diverse letterpress projects created on the Vandercook. We used them with glee! Thank you Melanie for all your support and fun with FeMail. We love heading up to North Adams whenever we can.
