This is really happening.

After only two years of conversation, constant questioning, sharing ideas, holding each other up, shopping galleries, learning to accept rejection gracefully (sort of) and oh, I almost forgot, making art-
Parallel Lives will go live at:

Cooper Young Community Association offices

2298 Young Avenue, Memphis TN 38104

May 20 – June 11, 2011

Opening reception:

6 – 9pm, Friday, May 20, 2011

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday: Noon – 5pm

Tuesday: 12:30 – 6pm, Closed Friday.


Textures, toys and stories will be on display at the CYCA offices from May to June. Parallel Lives captures the spirit and sense of two Memphis artists. Jean Holmgren and Paula Kovarik work as graphic designers but find art in odd and different directions. The work includes Toys from the Other Side by Jean Holmgren, art quilts by Paula Kovarik and Conversation Piece, an installation revealing their collaborative process.

So, with much humility, fear and trembling and a BIG thanks to our respective spouses, Leigh Ann Dye (our matchmaker muse) and the Craft B'ers for their support- IT IS REALLY HAPPENING and we hope you will come see what all the fuss is about.
