The Project

Calling all artists, designers, illustrators, and the artistically motivated: show us your most creative mail art!

Art Gallery of St. Albert (AB, Canada) is celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017 with a cross-country, multi-media, multi-participant, mail art extravaganza. Mail art is an exciting, playful artistic movement, centered on the sharing of small-scale art using the Canadian postal service.

We want to push the envelope on creativity and engage with the diverse global community through this interactive and inclusive project.

The Dreaming of Canada project inspires you to share your aspirations, hopes and impressions of Canada. Contemplate the future or history and delve into your subconscious to craft something wonderful!

Think: custom carved stamps, envelopes, postcards, pop-up pages, paper cutting, print-making, digitally created artworks, collage, scrapbooking, mixed media, poetry, calligraphy, photography and whatever else you can imagine!

Art Gallery of St. Albert will be exhibiting a selection of Dreaming of Canada submissions from August 12th to September 30th, 2017!
