Opening Reception

Collage, from the French ‘coller (to glue),’ has been with us since the Chinese invented paper in 200 BCE, through the middle ages, into 17th century Venice when découpage (from découper, to cut out’) became fashionable, right on through to the present day. But modern collage as a formal artistic technique is considered to have begun with Pablo Picasso and Georges Bracque in 1912, and has flourished ever since as a distinctive component in the making of modern art.  Virtually all mediums have been engaged – paper, wood, photomontage, assemblages of stones and glass, tiles, marble, mosaics, 3-dimensional constructions as well as digital creations.

The UNE Art Gallery presents a wonderful collection of The Art of of Collage by fine artists working in our region today in many different media.
