The entire post is dedicated to the "eye art" of Gina Visione.
If you've ready Gina's profile, you'll know that she works in the field of low vision and blindness rehabilitation. I had originally planned this swap months ago, but when I learned Gina would be traveling out of the country for an extended period, I postponed the swap so that she could participate. I knew she would particularly like this swap, but I didn't realize just how wholeheartedly she would embrace it.
Gina created TWENTY cards for this swap, so that she could receive an original "eye" piece from each swapper. Talk about commitment!
Here are her pieces:
Gina combines her love of mail art and her love of her profession in her "Resident Mail Art Project" in which she sends handmade postcards, (from artists all over the world) to patients and residents of a long term care rehabilitation hospital. She has an ongoing open mail call for anyone who would like to create some mail art for the residents. Here are the details, I hope you consider making some art for a worthy cause:
