From Russia With Love

From Russia With Love
4x6"  (book scraps, fabric, thread)

The National Collage Society has mounted its 23rd Annual Small Format Exhibit of small format (4x6) collages...and although the art is on-site at The Hill School in Pottstown, PA, the virus (yes, THAT virus) says you may only view them on-line.  Click here to view the lovely little postcards.

And thank you, NCS, for honoring my piece with an award!

What COVID-19 Has Taught Us

Debutantes Taking Precautions

A few lessons learned from this Pandemic:

1.  We have the worst possible President at the worst possible time.
2.  Ordinary people are often the most heroic.
3.  If it can happen, someday it will.
4.  Many rich people have no souls.
5.  Facts matter.
6.  Science matters.
7.  Jeans can easily be worn for at least six days.
8.  We don't know what we don't know.

Place Setting

Five Paper Plates

I miss people.  I miss hugs.  I want to have a large dinner party with all my favorite folks in attendance (you know who you are...).  We will eat off of these collaged paper plates and I will serve only desserts.  See you at six.  Stay late and we'll play board games.

Wednesday in the Pandemic

Mona 4

There is a bird
on my balcony
I have been sitting
in this chair
for more than 3 hours
playing games
with a robot
the bird is gone.

Exhibition News from Coronaville

In this new virus era we're in, the exhibition world is on substantial hold.  Some shows are being cancelled, others are going on line, and some are on hold hoping for less social distancing.

Right now I have one collage piece (Every Atom in  Our Bodies Came From an Exploded Star) out in Woodstock, IL, waiting patiently for the delayed exhibition "Women's Works 2020 -- 33rd Annual Show" to begin sometime later in the year.

One of my books (Bird Windows) is treading water out in Ellensburg, WA, where hopefully Gallery One will be able to mount its lovely exhibit of artist's books called "between the fold" sometime later in the summer.

And down in Tacoma, WA, the Washington State History museum is closed due to COVID-19, but the Northwest Collage Society's show honoring the 2020 Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in Washington State, has just appeared online.  It includes my collage When They Finally Guaranteed Us the Vote:

You can view this exhibition at:   2020Suffrage Show.

And the beat goes on...
