ARTLIFE Foundation's latest Communication for the Creative Mind
Joe Cardella came upon Mail Art and took it to a new dimension. He created and published an extraordinary monthly publication, each issue a collection of original art and literature mailed from artists across the globe, and kept it going for 25 years.
Periodically the Foundation is able to offer selected Editions for sale to members and friends at the ARTLIFE Home/Studio.
What Is Communication for the
“Communication for the Creative Mind” was a term Joe Cardella used, from the beginning, to describe his publication Art/Life Limited Edition. Art/Life provided a way for creative people around the world to exchange concepts and ideas. The Foundation works to expand the idea of conceptual exchange with programs, discussions, presentations, exhibitions, and international Mail Art Shows .
Rarely do we have an opportunity to visit the home and work space of a producing artist. For over 40 years Joe Cardella earned his livelihood by creating art and producing the internationally collected Editions. The home studio shelters over 400 pieces of art – paintings, assemblage, sculpture, and carvings.
We see the uniquely arranged spaces where every room is a gallery, even the kitchen, bathroom, patio and garden.
