Collaborative corpse

Mooney "Lime-Vicky,'' by MARY K. MOONEY, in the "Exquisite Corpse: Surrealist Fun'' show at Gallery Seven, Maynard, Mass., through May 22.

"Exquisite Corpse'' is based on an old parlor game invented in the '20s. in it, a piece of paper is folded into three parts.  The gallery explains: "The first artist draws a head and then folds it over and passes it to the  next artist, who is only allowed to see the end of what the previous artist has draw. The next artist draws a torso and the third, the legs. When the paper is unfolded, a collaborative drawing is revealed.''
