For over a decade, the ten exhibiting artists have been meeting every other week to discuss each other’s work, most recently at the Carriage Barn Arts Center. They gather every other Thursday morning for several hours to critique each other’s work, a process that has resulted in numerous group and solo exhibitions, book publications and awards.
