Megyn Craine - postcard art!

I am blessed to have wonderfully creative people in my life. My ol' college pal, Megyn Craine is one of the most carefree and lively artists I know. We first met freshman year in an art theory class after she stood up and loudly dismantled a chair with a hammer in the middle of class, shocking everyone. Unbeknownst to us, the professor had slipped her a note and asked her to do it. We were in the middle of a lesson about conceptual/performance art. What better way to "hammer" it home? Megyn's always had a love of the post office and correspondence. After she transferred to San Francisco Art Institute in junior year she sent all of us various and sundry items. A large rock (with no wrapping) was mailed to one of our dearest professors, Chris Horton. It took six months and a lot of stamps, but it eventually got there. These days Megyn's art consists mostly of baked goods, as she owns a delicious bakery in Jersey (with another stellar college artist-friend.) Nonetheless, Megyn was thrilled when I asked her to be YES Gallery's resident postcard artist. Pictured above is my own personalized postcard art a la Megyn that I received when the gallery opened. But you too can have your very own custom postcard! For just $35, you get to pull a card from this "fancy" tin, answer the questions on it, and within three weeks - voila! - personalized postcards arrive at your door! OR, how 'bout sending one to a friend for a special occasion? Postal Possibilites abound!
