  1. I had the pleasure of attending the opening last night. It’s a wonderful exhibit. I love collage and assemblage and Melissa Sweet’s illustrations for THE RIGHT WORD: ROGET AND HIS THESAURUS are to die for! I hope all members interested in illustration will attend. There are also several gallery talks that look good!
