Nancy Bell Scott Collages

I have always wanted my blog to be a place where I could show my work and work that has inspired me and also work that I have just found wonderful. And not just master’s work, but the work of us, the everyday artists doing what we do because we love it and some times are frustrated by it. Artists that are doing things that confuse them or stay up all night doing something because they suddenly ‘get it’ and can’t stop. Or art that I find out about when I talk to other artists, work that I never knew existed. Links to things that spark those things in a artist mind that an artist really understands.
Anyway enough.
The following Pieces are from the blog of Nancy Bell Scott who besides being a collage artist is a mail artist and a member, like myself, of the International Union of Mail Artists.

Something new for me…4 x 6 inch Mail Art.

 Mail art is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and involves sending visual art (but also music, sound art, poetry) through the international postal system. It has been said that many artists felt the commercial system of galleries needed a shot in the arm due to what was perceived as  corruption. And while this actually did little to influence the galleries of the time, it did provide for the development of an alternative culture that thrives today.

I have created these and I am sending them out. There is no obligation to do anything other than enjoy the piece. If you are an artist and want to send a piece back that would be great. If you want to be included when I send them, send your address to me at If you need my mailing address, email me and I’ll send it along to you.
