|Three Modern Muses|
12" x 12"
The Treasure Valley Artist Alliance put out a call to artists for their upcoming show:
"Four Eyes: An Optical Collusion."
Creating opportunities for collaboration is the heart of the TVAA mission. In order to highlight that vision their 13th exhibition will feature collaborations between TVAA members.
I have entered EVERY show since the beginning of TVAA. The call for this show came out while I was traveling, and I was not about to let that stop me. When I got back in town I asked a couple of my friends and they were already committed. Not wanting to give up, I asked a couple more and found two very talented women to say YES!
Now for the idea, we only had two weeks left and it was hard coming up with a time that we could all meet...jury duty...elderly parents...etc. I came up with two concepts and we settled on the idea of each of us creating a self-portrait in the style of Picasso. I would collect them, mount them and register the three of us. We met the deadline and were accepted!
I feel honored that my artist collaborators are Jaki Katz Ashford and Lauren T. Kistner.
Jaki came up with the title: Three Modern Muses, which we all loved.
