Last year I participated in a wonderful show hosted by Art House Co-Op  http://www.arthousecoop.com/about (formerly in Atlanta Georgia, now in Brooklyn, New York). The show was called “Stuff Your Sorries in a Sack.” The directions to participating artists were to fill a little sack with anything “that you need to get off your chest” and once received, Art House would “put your sacks filled with your old baggage out in the open and let people experience what you have moved on from. As we didn’t receive the pieces back, it was indeed an exercise in letting go.I made a small accordion book filled with collage, found art, and handwritten text in Walnut Ink. The paper is French Larroque. Art House provided the burlap sack which I modified to fit the book, hand stitched a personal label with my initials, and tied with my studio’s signature red twine.
