We Do What We Must

I'm grateful to be included in this very cool show exploring the current role of women in society, entitled We Do What We Must , opening tonight at Rodger LaPelle Galleries in Old City Philadelphia. When I look at the five pieces I have in it, one photograph and four paintings, every single one documents a collaboration with a different friend (or two!) from several different areas of my life.  Making it clear that connections and friendships are crucially important to me as I move through this world.
