Earlier this month I traveled to Ashland, Oregon to attend the opening of The Story Within, an art exhibition of work created by both myself and Roxanne Evans Stout at Illahe Studios and Gallery. Working with Roxanne has been a special experience, especially because we worked collaboratively on 12 pieces within the show. We mailed panels back and forth between New York City and Oregon and in doing so, created each piece jointly. We also exhibited our own work as well as a series of handmade artists books that we had collaborated on in previous years. You can see some of my own work in this previous post.
I wish you all could have been there with us to celebrate the opening. But the next best thing is a picture. So as promised, some scenes from The Story Within...
