an archive of art, publication, & conversation

The work is more than art made, shows performed, & words written. The work is GATHER. The work is discuss. The work is laugh, share, startle, & reach.

We eat, we write, we share. We craft, we print, we dance. Art is both intimate & COMMUNITY.  No either/or: just this work, and us, now.
