In the Summer of 2013 I had only met 2-3 of the invited artists in person. This was due to the fact that my contact with the individual group members was formed largely through social media. Yet, the invited group bravely took a chance and went with my project idea, thus kick starting 'A Group Gathering. Not only did they agree to take part in The Shirt Collar Project but they actually saw the challenge through to the end, creating a super body of work. It has been a pleasure and a priviledge getting to know the artists and their work in person as a result. I'd like to take this chance to publicly thank all of the 2014 Group Gathering artists - you rose to the challenge with aplomb and you will be a tough act to follow."
For those of you who didn't get to see the finished collar pieces in person this Summer, it is hoped that they will go on display again in 2015.
