10 ARTISTS ~ ShagRug Collective

closes Sunday November 30th at 5 pm

The shag rug collective came together spontaneously through the generosity of Erica Olsen and Simon Andrew who invited some interested artists to participate in biweekly gatherings in Erica’s studio.  The dominant yellow shag rug on the floor of Erica’s former studio became an obvious choice for the name of the group.
We paint and draw together using still life as a jumping off point.   The  diversity of responses to the same subject stimulates and revitalizes the often lonely process of art making.  The group also benefits from voluntary critiques and the opportunity to share art information.
We dedicate this show to Ron Wilkinson, an original member, who died September 2013.
