This project was supported by an Arts Alive Individual Artist Grant sponsored by ArtsWestchester and NYSCA (NY State Council on the Arts) received by Patricia Miranda for this project.
Ten artists artists joined me in the project, creating autonomous and collaborative drawings over a period of three months using ink created from oak galls foraged and collected from nature centers and private trees around the country. We documented the progress and the places where the oak galls were collected. Satellite projects are beginning to happen around the country- email if you are interested in joining in.
The project has expanded to satellite inkers in Texas, Long Island, Massachusetts and beyond. Galls have been collected from Massachusetts Audubon, Rye Nature Center, Greenburgh Nature Center, and private property around the country.
