This is an exhibition of three artists who have for years collectively discussed and critiqued their art. Knowing that artists work in the vacuum of their own studios, they found that sharing input to the actual art-making process is an invaluable part of this usually solitary venture. They also saw that their art making processes of mixed media collage and the common themes within their works were a strong basis for an exhibition. At each venue, the exhibition is updated with new works.
