Laurie Beth Zuckerman's shadowbox dollhouse altars were on display in the "Vivid Conversations" exhibition at the Historic Carnegie Building's Community Creative Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. This November 2014 show was curated by artist Lili Francuz, who invited ten local artists to be included. Each artist was given their own wall and I displayed several new altars.

My husband, Thomas Mathies, also exhibited his religious folk art crucifixes in this exhibition. Carved from tree roots and painted with traditional gesso and egg tempera, Tom's work looked spectacular in this historic building. Below are a few photos of his display.

I just wrote a great comment and it disappeared off the face of the earth. Your altars appeal to me so much. How I wish I could have seen that show. Do you ever display in Los Angeles?
