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 have been documenting the progress and also the places where the oak galls were collected. See more info here.
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.
