In September, members came to the first meeting of the new year ready to present and exchange their contribution to the BAR collaborative. This years theme was Rara Avis. Co-chair Elisa Kessler Caporale, explains it very well: "Literally "rare bird," this Latin expression indicates a rare or unique person or thing. This theme asks you to choose an existing bird, or create/design your own (species of) bird and its environment."
Participants were instructed on size (1 folio, 7" x 11", grain short; when folded 7" x 5.5"), and selection of paper (BFK Rives, Stonehenge, or Canson Editions, white).
So, from the members and the fabulous pieces we exchanged....(drum roll please!)...here you go!!
