Postmarked 2009 Reception Photos June 5

June 5: Public Celebration Reception! We had many guests arrive for our reception, including several of the participating mail artists, ongoing Postmarked supporters, and others who saw this exhibit for the first time. "The Jazz Standards" played in the entry foyer, and the crowd enjoyed dancing and listening to their classsic jazz tunes. Pictures below are of the guests and the various antics... Captions are below each photo.

Curator Anne calls Richard Canard, as instructed on one of his many entries. He received at least 3 phone calls this evening in response to his envelope asking guests to call him during the reception.
Guests caught in the act of calling Richard Canard.
