Debut Art Exhibit at age 81!!

My daughter (who currently resides in NYC) sent me this article yesterday. I'm sharing the link here as the story is wonderful and this man has been collaging since the 40's!! Now he has an exhibit opening at the ripe old age of 81...
Photo here is a piece called 'Mannerist Concern', done this year by John Ashbery.

I love his work, now I'll have to check out his poetry as well :)

Thanks, Christine, for sharing this with me, so I can pass it on also.

Well that IS cool Gaye and very inspiring! He brings to mind Joseph Cornell one of my all time favorite 'collagers', altho sadly he's no longer with us
