Recommended Show!

From Mar Goman's show at Re-Vision Gallery

I've written many times about SCRAP (School/Community Reuse Action Project), the amazing source of all kinds of supplies for mixed media work. I went on a Hunting and Gathering trip there the other day, coming home with a new slew of magazines for collage images, fabric scraps, a couple of art books, and assorted gee-gaws. While I was there I felt fortunate to be able to see Mar Goman's installation at the Re-Vision Gallery adjacent to the store.

Mar has used recycled, repurposed, and reimagined objects to tell a powerful story. Her show depicts the life of "Lucy" and other women consigned to mental hospitals for being different in some way from what was considered the norm. Be sure to catch this intense and moving show this month!

I stumbled upon Mar's show at SCRAP and was almost speechless upon entering the gallery. It is fabulous (and I blogged about it, too!).
