ERI 10: You've Got Mail


Exhibition Runs: November 16th - December 14th, 2023 @ Eyelevel’s Bookstore, 2482 Maynard Street

Opening Reception: November 16th 6 - 8 PM (featuring a print-it-yourself project by Maria Rosati!)

The Eyelevel Reshelving Initiative is returning with a mail-art edition of our long-standing printed matter and multiples show! You’ve Got Mail will be a non-juried member’s exhibition of printed matter and multiples that are packaged and redistributed as “care packages” to all of the participating artists. 

Artists are welcome to consider the theme of mail art, early-internet aesthetics, and low-fi communication, or simply include a submission of previously created works that fit within the size and edition guidelines of this call for submissions. 

ERI is a member’s program, if you are not a member of Eyelevel or need to renew your membership, please visit www.eyelevel.art/membership. Sliding scale and PWYC/free memberships are available! As a non-juried project, all member submissions that follow this iteration’s guidelines will be accepted (with the exception of any submissions that violate our code of conduct.)


How ERI 10 will work:

  1. Submit an edition of 6 copies/versions of printed matter or multiples either in-person or through the mail. All submissions must be received by the deadline of NOVEMBER 8TH. 

    1. ​Drop them off/ship them to our bookstore: 2482 Maynard Street, Halifax NS, B3K 3V4 (open Wed-Fri, 12PM - 5PM)

  2. Eyelevel’s staff will use 5 versions/copies of your submission to create “care packages” that will be mailed out to each of the participating artists.

  3. One copy/version of your submission will remain at Eyelevel’s bookstore on exhibition and may be priced for sale (Eyelevel takes a 30% commission on sales.)

  4. Attend our opening reception on November 16th or visit our bookstore to see what everyone contributed!

  5. Receive a mail-are care package from Eyelevel containing five pieces of printed matter and multiples by your fellow ERI 10 artists. 

  6. After the exhibition closes, a selection of unsold items will remain in our bookstore.


Submission Guidelines:

All ERI 10 submissions should meet the following guidelines:

  • 2D/flat submissions (such as prints, books, zines, postcards, etc) should be no larger than 8” x 10”.

  • 3D objects such as small sculptures or wearable art should fit in your hand.

All artists are welcome to include business cards or labels with their work for the exhibition and care packages.

  • A Submission Form and Agreement should accompany all submissions - this is not only your exhibition agreement, it is essential for us to collect important information about your work and where we can send your care package! Forms can be submitted via:
