I've been going through my archives again. Back in the spring of 2008, Lulu de Kwiatkowski's color-soaked book of collages was released and I had a wonderful opportunity to speak with her about both the weighty tome, her creative childhood, and her hopes for incorporating art into her kids' world.
Time flies; now she has three adorable sons. If you're a fan of her textiles and fine art, you may already know there will be an exhibition of Lulu's work at Clic Gallery, 225 Centre Street, NYC, April 6 through May 8. A list of prints with dimensions and prices is available here.
And of course I can't do a post that references collage without including a Romare Bearden link. (Bearden is among the American masters currently highlighted at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art in Nashville.)
