> DESCRIPTION

One year into their collaboration, Maryann Kovalski from London and Linda Stillman from New York will show their original postcards at a sidewalk stand in front of the Guggenheim Museum  on Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 9-5. (Rain date: Sunday, May 22.) While the originals are not for sale at this time, some reproductions will be available for purchase.

Linda Stillman is a fine artist deeply rooted in New York. Writer/illustrator Maryann Kovalski is an ex-New Yorker now in London after a life in Canada. They met as students at the School of Visual Arts and found each other again decades later.

This rediscovery sparked an exploration of their lives as creators in New York and London, documented in postcard exchanges. The pair investigated the differences and similarities between the two cities using rubbings, drawings, collage, photographs and found objects. They compare their external worlds and domestic minutiae, manners, mores and the rhythms of daily life. Some pieces are collaborative, some stand alone.

"Exploring Home in London & New York, a Postcard Collaboration" will be exhibited at the Hampden Gallery Incubator Project Space, at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in Spring 2012
