Ongoing saga of the Daily Mail collages

April 1 2013, original collage by Janice McDonald.I’ve been posting the Daily Mail collages on my Facebook art page in a one-year-later, day-by-day manner and want to put them here too. However, I’ve fallen way behind! Where has April gone?!I’d, of course, love for you to like my Facebook page if you are in the mood. Then my art posts would show up on your Facebook feed from time to time.

On a quieter note...

Reflecting on a small group of the Daily Mail collages. Views of the "Overlooked Artifacts" exhibition at Spark Gallery on a quiet afternoon... There were 75 original collages, framed with UV glass and archival matting, each 12 x 9" in size and hung chronologically in a grid. This represented each day's mail from March, April, and May of 2013.It's always great to have company in the gallery, but sometimes I look forward to a lull when I can take it all in, size it up, and think about where my work may be taking me next.View upon entering, to left of door at Spark Gallery. The long wall of collages...The final few collages and the end wall with my artist statement and guestbook.
