|Our grandson mugging next to our entry in the Box Show|
Each artist is given an unadorned pine box. You can pretty much do anything to it as long as elements of the original the box remains in the piece (people have taken them apart, burned them, shredded them and so on; this year printmaker Xander Weaver-Scull burned the box and used the ashes to make ink. Then made a print using the ink).
There are over 100 particpating artists. Here are a few highlights from the show.
