Each week we present a collection of artwork from a variety of artists curated around a common theme. This week the theme is Chachka. As in the trinkets of memory preservation. As in the collections of tiny objects, thoughtfully gathered and preciously saved. This theme is inspired by the compulsion of gathering and grouping objects. I love to see things categorically assembled by artists, each object placed with purpose and thought. Here are some carefully selected artworks curated around the idea of chachka.
