Women's Studio Workshop Collaborations at the Islip Art Museum, Islip, New York.

This collaboration of mixed media prints and drawings on paper were sent back and forth between Clarissa in Asheville, North Carolina and Chris in Rosendale, New York using the US Postal System. Through this exchange, they altered each other's work until the long distance dialogue became a physical interaction in the Islip Art Museum space.
