Online Exhibition+Artbook – CALL FOR ENTRY

JUROR: Claire Christie
DEADLINE: Sunday February 27, 2021, by midnight

Be part of our online exhibition and ‘art book’.
All accepted collage-based works will be included in an online slide show and publication.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This year we are initiating our 1st juried exhibition showcasing collage-based works by contemporary artists. The art term “collage” comes from the French Language and literally means “to glue”. For this exhibition, CALL, collage is understood as both the technique and the resulting work of art in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric and other ephemera are arranged and stuck down onto a supporting surface to create an overall work of art.

JUROR’S BIO

The Toronto-based gallerist has actively contributed to visual culture in the city for more than three decades. Since opening, her gallery has quickly become known for privileging work that is invested, disciplined, and not afraid of play. Christie is celebrated for her highly attuned eye for aesthetic detail and material investigation.
