these are my treasures

little hairy dress by Marion Michell (aka Marjojo)

I am so sad i will not be able to make it to see Marjojo's art exhibition coming up next week. It is at The Art House in Wakefield, UK. If you are in the area, i hope you'll go see it! Marjojo will rock your world. The opening is on Wednesday, May 26th, from 5-9pm, with Marjojo giving an artist talk at 7pm. The exhibit is up from 26 May - 21 July 2010.

Marjojo, you are an incredible artist and i think you are a superhero.

  5. Oh Mien, This is the first time in ages that I'm looking at anyone's blogs - the preparations for my show took over my life completely and left nothing in terms of energy and head space -, and of course your blog was top of my list, and what do I find? I am sooooo touched, and delighted, to find this little parade of marjojo's, and see how you love them. Thank you! Oh, thank you! And I would have loved you to be here too.

    Happy summer to you,
