Postcards from Brattleboro: 40 Years of Mail Art

March 14 - June 14, 2020

Stuart Copans of Brattleboro, Vermont, is known to an international community of mail artists as the enigmatic entity “Shmuel.” He is the maker of unusual cuttings, books, cartoons, and postcards, all sent from Brattleboro as part of a collaborative exchange spanning 40 years. Shmuel’s mail-art network of friends surfaces in this exhibit via artwork by Darlene Altschul, John Bennett, Ryosuke Cohen, Crackerjack Kid (Chuck Welch), Gabrielle Dietzel, Peter Dudley, Walt Evans, Andrea Jay, David Keith, Jazzy Lupa, Kandy Phillips, and Lisa Leong Tsang.
