Altogether: Collage/Assemblage



















I slipped into the gallery and took these photos this afternoon.


The opening is on Saturday and it will be overflowing with people, live music, food and wine. I was pleased to hear there were over 350 entries and only 90 were accepted. I had two accepted (my

two are the 1st and the 6th photo)so I was very pleased. Florie's piece is the second one with the red pony. Wonderful assemblages...plenty of imagination and workmanship. CLICK TO ENLARGE.


Pablo went with me today and we

went out for another lunch. We had planned to visit our new Whole Foods but it won't open for five more days, we ate at a small delicious bakery/bistro...fun date for us.

  2. I agree with the judges. These two are wonderful choices. I especially like the one with what looks like blueprint plans worked into the design. It so much reminds me of "plans for the future". Good going!!

    Jo, It was great having these two accepted...I felt "seen". I always enjoy the making of art and the party business leaves me uneasy but this was good.

    Robyn, Thank you...wouldn't that be fun...visiting shows here and there?!
