Peep-A-Boo Chickadee Revisited by Jane Pompilio George $200Longtime friends Loretta and Jane are joining forces for this show to feature their many wonderful bird-related pieces. In some cases well known adages have been illustrated to inspire the creations.

Both women work with collage, often embellishing the surfaces with glued, drawn and painted areas. Their techniques of collecting and recycling images by cutting, pasting and layering textures and then adding drawn and painted elements all provide an avenue for even an even greater experimental and process-driven results.

The more spontaneous nature of this medium and approach allows them freedom to manipulate their designs, while still enjoying the happenstance qualities that evolve.

Hope to see you there!
