Join us for our new monthly collage night, the 2nd Wednesday of the month, where all are welcome to come hang out, create, and share work with other enthusiasts of collage art. If you have always wanted to learn more about collage or perhaps used to collage and haven’t in a long time, here’s your chance to do so in a fun environment of people eager to create and explore this easy-to-learn and very DIY medium. The night will kick off with a short slide show of collage art from around the world designed to inspire you with ideas. And then the cutting and pasting will commence! This event was created by local collage artists Leslie Harper, A.M. O’Malley and Kevin Sampsell.

Some materials (scissors, paper cutters, glue stick, old magazines and books) will be provided, but please bring some of your own materials as well.
