The Artist Talk at The Fine Arts Gallery is less than a week away. I've decided to focus my talk on my habit of collecting "nuggets." My nuggets are visual slices of the micro world I store away for future reference. They're also physical bits and pieces I store in boxes [and boxes]: magazine images and found paper, bits of wood and metal pieces. I use these nuggets as both inspiration and collage material in my arrangments. My talk starts at 6:30 followed by a talk by mixed media artist Kasia Stachowiak.
