“Between You & Me” is the first collaboration between Caroline Picard and Thea Liberty Nichols, begun via email correspondence almost a year in advance of them ever having met in person.
On March 31st, 2012 Lady Rollins did a two hour performance at Carrie Secrist Gallery. I don’t have a recording from that performance, but I can include a link to our first album, “EAEEEAOEAO.”
Visitors were encouraged to wander in and out of our loosely organized piece comprising improvised music, video screening, and intermittent reading and singing.

I was working on a new novel at the time called Happy Endings. (The book has since been retitled Woof) This work-in-progress is about a group of hipsters living in Philadelphia and the events which led them to their current position in life. Entangling shallow personalities are complicated with transparent glimmers of childhood. The past becomes present, flattening out through night-time banter and its invariable avoidance of grief. The present has to lead somewhere. The exhibit featured three Hipster Pokemon portraits based on characters in the book. A limited edition of the book was also available.

opening reception Saturday, January 12 from 6 – 10pm
At the center of this exhibit was a poorly perfect bound draft of my novel “Bygones.” The novel is divided into three sections describes the landscape of a family, in the wake of a father’s death. While the book had a only small presence in the show, all of the visual work (paintings, 2 videos, a sound piece and a soft sculpture) were transcriptions of specific passages. I was interested in translating the intimacy of a reading experience something visual that might be shared by many viewers at once. The text provided the linear landscape for the visual art.
