About the supervising artist: Marcee Blackerby 

I work in mixed media, creating with found objects.  I feel this gives me a sense of freedom in having such an unrestricted source of materials to choose from.  The strange and disconnected are the stuff of my creations.   These come with history and character, sometimes light-hearted, sometimes dark.  But each thing has individual memory and spark.  An object often takes unexpected directions, as if having intelligence and creative expression of its’ own.   It is precisely this unexpected result, when the common thing becomes art, that intrigues me. My fascination with language and love of story-telling often leads me to take a narrative approach to art.  I am enticed by the idea of attracting a kind of voyeuristic experience with my audience.  I try to create enough mystery to absorb and invite emotional play.  And I am always hoping for love at first sight.
