Nancy Scali's Last Supper for Andreas Hofer, 2009

today the mail art catalogue "Post für Otto" for Nancy Scali came back with a sad notice: return to sender address undeliverable, that alarmed me; Nancy has been ill the last years and now I found the message online that she has passed away:

Born October 28, 1946, passed away June 3, 2011, in Claremont, CA. She graduated from Chaffey High School, in 1964, and Chapman University, in 1968, with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art. Nancy later earned elementary and administrative credentials and taught in the public schools for 35 years. She retired from the Ontario/Montclair School District in 2008. She is survived by her husband, Thomas Scali; her son, Ian; and a brother, Houston Dewey of Clifton Virginia. Nancy was 64 years of age.

here you can see her submissions to the Bismarck project:

and here all the other nice stuff I got from her:

No. 579 - arriving mail art "Achtung Briefbombe" from Dominik Stahlberg (Italy) - it is a very late submisson to this mail art call on the topic Andreas Hofer, and my first marble mail art ever. It has a unique character for mail art, this piece is worked out in original Carrara marble, combined with synthetic materials and colour, weight 1.7 kilo. A funny letter from Andreas Hofer, Alte Heimat, Tirol to Napoleon Bonaparte, Paris Frankreich. Thank you very much. see Dominik's homepage with more of his funny sculptures:
