I actually started this collage a few weeks prior -- the night that Mark did the photo shoot for Artscope Magazine, we were pretending to work as he photographed us. I kept the piece of paper, and decided to use it after all. I doodled on it, just random marks with pencil. Actually it might have been Lynn's doodles. I then laid a piece of sewing pattern tissue on top, and kept on going.
Tonight we -- Adrienne, Emma, Lynn, Mark, Lucy Arrington and I -- started to hang our show which opens on Friday. It is a daunting task -- all 30o individual collages. We first had to come to a concensus about how to approach the task, then we had to do it! We are more than halfway there. Next time we show, I hope that someone else does the PR -- and hangs the show. We have yet to straighten out details for the event itself. That said, we are all very excited about this opening on Friday night at 6pm. If you are reading this and live in the Boston area, we hope to have a full house and a wonderful party. -- Lola
