Collage

International Juried Art Exhibition

Usually associated with early twentieth-century modernism, collage has been used by craftspeople and artists for many centuries. Collage stands out for its ability to bring items into relation with one another, to provoke the viewer to discover connections among them, and to tell stories that bring those images together. We are seeking works that range from the traditional to the experimental and everything in-between.
