On April 2nd, Michele was a part of a group show at the Drawing Room in Connecticut. She asked me to come to meet people that would be there and talk with some of the artists present and just check out the environment. This gallery was set up as a boutique but had a separate gallery with Michele and Eliza Stamps' work hung. Eliza Stamps hung a series of pieces from a collection called "its knot over yet". Her work is just a lot of meticulous pencil drawings. Her artist statement said that the drawings represented people's paths of life and they get all caught up and "knotted up" within each other's lives. Michele's work is very bright and vibrant and geometric. They contrasted each other's work very well and I thought it was an excellent choice to hang their work together.
