  1. Hi David,

    I visited your home and studio last month with the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts, and was delighted to meet you and see your work. Carol Cole, Philadelphia paper/found object artist, and I are curating an exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington DE beginning the middle of February 2014. The focus is current approaches in concept, material, and technique in fiber, and we think you photo collages would make an important contribution to this exhibit. We would like to visit your studio and speak with you next Thursday, June 13, at 11:00am or 2:00pm, if that would be possible.

    You can contact me at 302-229-2044, or ginabos/aol.com

    I am looking forward to seeing you again and hearing more about your work.

    Gina Bosworth
