Dear Picasso Mail Art Show
I have long been fascinated by the fact that Picasso wrestled with the portrait of his friend Pedro Manach and finally depicted him in a bullfighter's stance. So when Zip 37 Gallery, in Denver, Colorado, had a call for entries for a Picasso-themed mail art show, I sent along one of my paper doll Picassos for the show. I submitted "Surf Pedro" (top left). The show ran from December 22, 2006 through January 14, 2007. But still laying around in my flat file are "Manach Made of Words," "Manach in the Moon," and "Manach of the Earth."
