Two little projects worthwhile mentioning:
KRF:2 – Artist Notebook Project: As part of the 3rd Kildare Reader Festival, artists were invited to participate by filling a moleskine notebook with their notes, ideas … any creative way. Organised by Kildare County Council Library and Arts Services, all notebooks returned are part of a permanent touring collection.
Following the notebook exhibition in Newbridge, Kildare, it can now be seen in Drogheda, Co Louth: Droichead Arts Centre Drogheda | 9 January – 23 February
Three member of the Melt Collective have their notebooks on show: Karen Tierney, Sonja Kroll and Alan Bennett
The Postcard Collective invites artists 4 times a year to participate in their quarterly postcard exchange. Theme for the Fall 2012 exchange was ‘Accidental Discoveries’ and almost 30 selected artists shared their work through postcards.
Creating some 30 postcards is quite a task but it is so worth it once your letter box holds postcard surprises for weeks from fellow artists around the world.
This is one of my personal favourites – click on the image to see them all:
