Painters Marcy Friedman, Pat Mahony, and Boyd Gavin: The power of collaboration

Marcy Friedman, Pat Mahony, and Boyd Gavin have been painting together for about eight years.  They meet several times a month, usually with a live model. Over the years, various artists, included Jian Wang, Fred Dalkey, David Gibson, Gong Yuben, Mark Bowles, Melissa Chandon, and others, have joined for a while, bringing new energy and creativity to the group.  Gavin says, "Collaboration might be an overstatement. But, I suppose, the word can loosely describe our working relationship in the studio. We aren't driven by a mission statement, cri de coeur or violent desire to upend the dominant discourse of 21st-century art. We just meet and paint.”
