The Aird is delighted to offer our 2nd annual juried exhibition showcasing collage-based works by contemporary artists.
Derived from the French verb coller, meaning “to glue,” collage refers to both the technique and the resulting work of art in which fragments of paper and other materials are arranged and glued or otherwise affixed to a supporting surface. Associated Art Movements include Cubism, the DADA, and Surrealism. Today, collage, as a process and an art movement is experiencing a second life! We invite and eagerly await your up-to-date submissions!
