28.12.15 Dare De Villo S., ...Bob Ray is a fellow North Carolinian, a longtime correspondent (also  corresponded with Ray Johnson), a contemporary artist ( painter,  collagist & a musician/performance artist. He actually produces canvases & stuff [Recently  awarded a North Carolina Art Fellowship])...not to mention: he tolerates my nonsense when  I occasionally comment upon(atop) his mailings (the so-called "collaborations" )  & he lives at the beach.

Some people on FB very much want to attend. If anyone is going, you should try to organize something.

"Wendy Rodgers I would love to go to the opening.... Does anyone know if RC will be in attendance? I would like to meet him (in person). Anyone else up for a road trip? De Villo Sloan? Diane Keys? [Maybe we could sit, have a coffee and make some collaborative mail?]"

Hi Susan, great question! The presence of Richard C and Ray Johnson has "taken all the air out of the room" in terms of Bob Ray.

I know close to nothing about Bob Ray. He is an IUOMA member. Examples of his work can be found online, including a piece I wrote praising him in 2013. You can see one example of his art:

Bob Ray is clearly a seasoned networker. Maybe someone who knows him can provide more info.

DeVillo, I am intrigued by the idea of collaborations between Richard and Bob Ray. Do you know where we might see some of this work?
