A few weeks ago, someone very smart suggested I start a Ning site for my music. But this evening I rec'd an e-reminder about this new site from Cecil Touchon on the yahoo collage group. He has a lovely-looking show at Sears Peyton now. Anyway, this is my inaugural Ning visit. I wasn't very turned on by the theme pages offered, I have to say. But let's see. Hello out there! I am an image transferer and layerer! Who are you?

Watery excuse

I am sorry I haven’t been active since I recently joined this group. I’ve had a lot of problems with the environment in my studio and haven’t had time to post. First the problem was dampness, but it generated a lot of mold that we had to deal with. Then the studio flooded due to the heavy rains we have had in Atlanta. I feel fortunate to only have a flooded basement, some folks lost everything. For me it is the second time in the past week and they are expecting more rain this weekend! I know… Continue

"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

Why now, why here.

I am choosing to work the Art Assemblage arena due to influences and friendships with older artists who were the founders of the West Coast art movements of the famous Ferus Gallery (1957-66) in Los Angeles. Being inspired by the materials, (i.e. found/discarded objects) a construct is formed with a new life for these discards. The piece begins by continually moving common objects around and abstracting them into what ultimately may be a unified body. No assemblage is started with a clear view… Continue

Just saying "hi"! glad I was introduced to this group! Just wanted to say "Hi". My name is Katherine and I'm a self taught mixed media, collage and assemblage artist from Pasadena, CA. I just started getting my artwork out "into the world" a year ago, and so far, it's been a great experience! I'm currently preparing for a small 2 person show at the MSY Gallery in South Pasadena. It opens on July 25th. If you live in the area, be sure to stop by!

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

council without artistic conditions! a blessing, but of course it would happen right when we've gone over budget

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.
