As Jessica Hough says, in her essay “In The Spirit Of Collaboration”, “The stereotype of the solitary artist working away in private has dominated the recent history of Western art, but in the end we are social beings. The truth is that artists feed off their relationships with other creative people”.

“Route, Rut, Lane: A Karkhana Collaboration” brings together the following artists: S. Portico Bowman, Carlyn Clark, Johnny fox, Margaret Lazzari, Luke Reichle, Chris Russell, Caryl St. Ama, Nancy Kay Turner. Over eight months, the 16 works on paper circulated in a proscribed order until everyone had worked on each piece.
