Someone recently commented on how much they liked my View-Master collages I'd done a few years ago. I decided to do another one -- but on a wrapped canvas this time instead of in a frame. I took a photograph of a View-Master reel of Bryce Canyon in Utah on top of a Utah map with prints of 3 photos I had taken when visiting Bryce Canyon. I added a print of rectangular pieces of sky and clouds that I pieced together and art papers that were the colors of the Bryce landscape. As a finishing touch, I attached the actual View-Master reel to the canvas next to the photo of it.
The Venus Envy Quad Cities is having its fifth annual celebration of women's creativity May 2-22, 2009. During the opening on the 2nd, they feature women's music, dance, theatre, visual arts, multimedia installations, written and spoken word. The visual arts are then on display for the rest of the month. I've had work accepted into the show the last two years, so I plan to submit a few works again this year. I made this one yesterday (my computer was in the shop so I just went to my collage studio!) and think I'll include it.
