The Northwest Collage Society is honored to present its Winter 2017 Show at the Cascadia Art Museum in conjunction with the museum's Northwest Social Realism and the American Scene: 1930 -1950 exhibition. Each year the Collage Society shares juried work at locations throughout the Pacific NW. In this show, members of the society were asked to create up to three works of collaged two-dimensional art inspired by one of the following Northwest artists: Kenneth Callahan, Pieter Van Dalen, Fay Chong, Yvonne Twining Humber, Abe Blashko, Anne Kutka McCosh, Irwin Caplan, David McCosh or other NW artists of the 1930 -1950 time period.
Inspiration for the collages could include anything from the varied works of the Northwest artists including but not limited to the art elements: line, color, shape, texture, form, space, or value. Many of the collage artists related to more than one NW artist or to an anecdote of one of the listed artists. Some of our artists found inspiration in an interpreted theme.
55 collages by 33 artists were chosen by the Cascadia Art Museum's curator David F. Martin for this show.
