  1. Is it possible either to provide an address for each gallery so people may send art via US Mail or indicate that a FLAG does not accept contributions via mail? I’m coordinating contributions from artists of the Free Little Library Natick and the lack of this information is discouraging.


    1. Hi! I do my best to share the information exactly as the host wants it shared. Not all FLAGs accept art by mail. If there’s no mailing address given, that likely means that they FLAG host either doesn’t accept art by mail, or they might if you contact them personally via IG DMs.
