"100 hours in the Woodshed" returns to MCLA Gallery 51! Masterminded by collage artist Daniel O'Connor, the fourth edition of this unique biennial event begins January 24, 2013 with a "Meet the Artists" reception from 5 to 7 pm. at MCLA Gallery 51. During the five days that follow, the galleries will be a flurry of collage of every sort: from paper and glue, to film and sound, if it can be cut apart, appropriated, moved around, and pieced together into a new form, it's bound to be happening in the "woodshed". Visitors are encouraged to stop by and watch the work in progress from 10am-6pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
