Each participating artist was allotted ten running feet of 80-inches high paper to work with (and the option to do that in one 10-foot section or to divide it up among different spots around the gallery, possibly collaborating with other artists in some areas).

One of the gallery artists, my friend James Michael Starr wrote a blurb for the DARts Calendar that originally sparked my interest in this extravaganza. At first he suggested I come by to photograph progress on his collage there.

He talked to gallery owner Nancy Whitenack, and they suggested I might want to photograph the other artists who've brought portions of their studios to the gallery while they work on their parts.

I returned to the gallery every day to catch more artists making more art, getting to know each other, and beginning to collaborate. The photographs on the pages linked above are my more favorite photographs, in fairly close, chronological order.

Dallas-area gallery artists came in when their schedules permitted, and artists from out of town came in on the weekends or whenever — to do their 80 x 120 inches of original art.
