Lovers are already collaborators in life, but what happens when they collaborate as artists? Some would say that a deeper understanding comes into play under the circumstance, that couples creativity is different, perhaps more intimate, and rooted in unspoken simpatico. That's what Lovers Collaborations, a group project of the Heads of Hydra photography collective that opens Friday, August 1, at Carmen Wiedenhoeft Gallery, is all about.

"Anti-Curator" Richard Alden Peterson gave free rein to seventeen artist couples -- pairs that loosely range from married duos to good friends -- to create something together; even gallerist Carmen Wiedenhoeft doesn't know what the final product will look like.
