Paste-up 2010, June 26 - July 18

As an art form, collage is all about thinking outside of the box. So be prepared to be intrigued, amazed, and maybe even puzzled by this juried show of small format collage works. The dictionary defines paste-up as a composition of "flat objects pasted to a sheet or other
backing." This exhibit is an excellent representation of that definition.
Artist Reception, Saturday, June 26, 2-5pm
