The Links Challenge

The Links Challenge

Quite a few years ago the MBMAG asked each of the members to create a small piece of work that would reflect their style. This piece would have a means to connect it on both ends and once linked together would become one chain of unique works.

We would like to start a new “Links Project” which would demonstrate each of our member’s style and personality.
