Collaborative synergy is infinite and this exponentially creative and complex open call has challenged artists to extend and expand beyond themselves to seek one or two other artists to engage with and see what might develop…and put it all together in a cohesive visual flow.

A journey of discovery with no foreknown destination was set into motion and this exhibition is the momentary culmination. This exhibit includes artists who have collaborated beyond their medium of expression, artists both experienced and new at collaborating, parents with their adult offspring, varied processes that combine music, video, garden, humanity.
