WHERE: The Raven, 6 E. 7th St.

Your journal or sketchbook is your life. Inside are all fears, hopes, anxieties, plans, aspirations, secrets, you name it, spilled out on paper.  A collection of evolving thoughts and emotions made real through imagery and words, these are the unfinished, private aspects of you that you continue to hone.  HANG12 asked artists to expose their thought processes by filling out a moleskine journal to display.  Other journals, sketchbooks, and anthologies were displayed for viewers to comb through.  Art is usually hands off, but this show encourages you to pick up a book and flip through it, feel the texture of the paper, and smell the paint laid down on paper.  These artists offer their rich inner lives for you to examine.
