"Herb and Dorothy"

If you get an opportunity to see this film about two charming and quirky collectors, Herb and Dorothy, go! "The incredible true story of a postal worker and a librarian who built a world-class art collection." The film includes commentary by many artists in their studios about their relationships with Herb and Dorothy as well as interesting historical art world footage. I'm not affiliated with this film... but am so glad I saw it.… Continue

I'm looking forward to visiting other members… Continue

Just feelin' my way around

I thought I joined here a week or two ago. I already belong to a few other Ning communities so when I came here it kept saying I was already registered. I guess thought that meant I was automagically registered here or something too. LOL!!! When I came back tonight I didn't see myself in the member list so I'm trying this again. I'll get it right... I'm up here in the hills with sloooowww dial-up so I don't get around to these web communities much. I'll drop in now and then and see what… Continue

Starting a new Social Network for the Collage Community

Today I am starting up a ning site in association with the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction so that members of the museum's email group and community may share their work and ideas in a more multi-media environment.
