I had a moving experience yesterday(Saturday the 16th) - I may have shared that a wonderful collage artist Valerie Roybal died here in November- Valerie invited me to be a part of the collage group here when I first got here to Albuquerque. There is a show of her work up at a gallery here right now and they brought in her actual old desk and everything on it- several of her antique cases with her collections- the collage group set up tables right in the middle of her show and there were stacks and stacks of her books and collage materials we were encouraged to take and make work with. It was both a sad and a joyful afternoon. Here is a link to Valerie's work. https://www.pinterest.com/evabudlong/valerie-roybal/?lp=tru
Here are two collages I made at that gathering.
