Round Table Collaboration

Artists from all around the world collaborate by working on and sending pieces on to the next artist in line, ending up in California and exhibited in Berkeley University, Shuman Block Gallery; Ramons Taylor Gallery, San Francisco; in addition to those venues in 2014 the additional venue at the Louden Nelson Community Centre, Santa Cruz.

The Round Table Collaborations rounds 1 – 4 years (2011 – 2014) show the diverse works some initiated by Pennie Steel and worked on by four other collaborators from around the world.

The final images are often so different from the first image that it is hard to know how they started at all. That is the nature of the collaboration.

Each collaborator re names the work according to their input.

These final works have all be exhibited in California at two venues.

Round 5 starts this month and will be exhibited in those venues in March 2016.
