I See Moolongz Book Launch Party and Spontaneous Collaboration Art Exhibit

I see moolongz book launch

Whether you see Moolongz or not, whether you believe in Moolongz or not, whether you wish Moolongz had never appeared or are happy they did, they are here and you are all invited to the I See Moolongz book launch party on Saturday, September 27th from 4-6:00pm at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center, 6 Wonson Street.

During the book launch party, there will be an exhibit of an amazing collaboration series of five paintings by five artists in five weeks. The artists involved in the collaboration are Sue Handman (fabric artist), Brenda Malloy (abstract painter), Diana Pasquariello (watercolor painter), Regina Piantedosi (non-representational art) and E.J. Lefavour (photographer, painter, digital artist). In the true spirit of creativity, sharing and inspiration that the Rocky Neck Art Colony embodies, these five distinctly unique and different artists have come together to collaborate and share in the process of jointly creating five pieces of art. The experience has been one of learning, teaching, sharing, trust and letting go of the ego’s involvement in the creative process, and has resulted in five completely unique, never in a lifetime to come anywhere near being recreated again, pieces of art. If you are an artist or understand the creative process, you will appreciate how rare and unique an undertaking like this is. Please come by and check out our “Spontaneous Collaboration”.

After this brief exhibit at the Cultural Center, one of the pieces will be on exhibit in each of the five artists’ galleries for the remainder of the season.
