Postal Mortem by San Francisco based artist Jennie Ottinger will feature 25 postcards (front and back) sent by Ottinger as a creative endeavor to support the U.S. Postal Service and this endangered mode of communication. The postcards feature social media type messages that are handwritten with related drawings. The opening reception on Saturday, November 15 will involve a stamp exchange: bring some to swap for others (like tiny trading cards).

Her work has been shown at Volta NY Art Fair, NADA Art Fair/Miami, Headlands Center for the Arts, Johansson Projects and locally at Conduit Gallery and has been published in Art in America, ArtSlant, Daily Serving, 7X7, Huffington Post.
