Welcome the New Year at BAR with the Collaborative, Rara Avis!

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!) you go!!
