Denver art gallery puts collage show together

Metro State CVA offers varied exhibition

Posted

While the art of collage can be traced back to ancient civilizations, it has been associated most strongly with 20th-century modernists, such as Braque and Picasso, and continues to interest today's artists nationally and internationally. The National Collage Society advances the stature of collage as a major art medium.

Metropolitan State University's Center for Visual Art, located in the Santa Fe Art District, offers a new exhibition of collage and assemblage by 91 artists, local and national, called “Greater Than the Sum: National Collage Society Exhibition.” It runs through Jan. 24 at the contemporary MSU gallery.

Works displayed were chosen in a competition that drew 393 entries from five different countries: the United States, Croatia, Italy, Hungary and Canada. The jurors were Janice McDonald, collage artist and director of Denver's Spark Gallery, Marilee Salvator, associate professor of art at MSU Denver, and Cecily Tyson, CVA creative director.

The exhibition judge is Pavel Zoubok, who owns a New York gallery and is founder and director of the nonprofit arts organization, International Collage Center.

A catalog published by the NCS will be available for $10.

In the Emerging Artist Gallery is Ah-Sem-Blahj, an exhibition of assemblage and collage work by Denver artists, many of whom are MSU students. It was organized by student curators.

Related events:
● Dec. 5, 6-7 p.m., hands-on collage workshop with Marilee Salvator.
● Dec. 12, 6-7 p.m., Ah-Sem-Blahj panel discussion: “Artist Inspiration and Resources.”
