2006 Tributaries

In a concept designed by New Mexico poet Lisa Gill, eight artists were invited to respond to two books of poetry: Gill’s Mortar & Pestle and NYC poet Purvi Shah’s Terrain Tracks. Tributaries traveled from the upper Midwest to the Southwest, premiering at the Spirit Room in Fargo, North Dakota, for the New Rivers Press Literary Festival in October 2006, and was exhibited at 516 ARTS April 6–May 12, 2007. Stretching Solace (above) and Bones of Our Mother are two works that came out of this collaboration.
