Collage Party

Sunday, March 9, 2008 - 5:00am to Wednesday, March 12, 2008 - 4:00am

Derek Sullivan, OCAD Faculty of Art Instructor, is part of the Collage Party Artist Team.
Collage Party, Paul Butler's nomadic world-wide studio experience lands at the JMB Gallery and you are invited to participate!
On Sunday, March 9, join in this free-form art jam-session: make collages with local artists and take advantage of an exploratory, informal space organized around play, interaction and experimentation.
Starting Thursday, March 6, a select team of local artists (specializing in a spectrum of media work) will transform the gallery space into a shared studio/lounge, where invited artists will be free to experiment like an art school, but without the teachers or assignments.
From March 9 through March 12, everyone is invited to join in the activities; drop by the JMB Gallery to make some art, listen to music, collaborate, and see what the Collage Party Artist Team has been up to. Hang out and contribute to the creation of an autonomous zone designed to assemble, connect, and engage.
Artists in attendance on Sunday, March 9.
Supplies provided, but feel free to bring some of your own to the mix!
