The newest exhibit to be on display is entitled “Remembrance,” which presents selected works from the Delaware Valley Collage Collaborative, a group of nine artists working in mixed media.
The group describes itself as having come together by serendipity at a workshop in the winter of 2011, and has grown from an informal gathering of art-minded women to an energetic presence that exhibits in a variety of Philadelphia-area galleries and public institutions. In 2014, the group ran a series of collage workshops in ten different Philadelphia venues, including the Veterans’ Administration, with the goal of teaching disadvantaged youth and adults how to express themselves through art. They also host collage workshops throughout the Delaware Valley, and have exhibited in a variety of local venues including St. Asaph’s Church Gallery and a number of area libraries.
The group consists of the following 9 members, all of whom share the goals of promoting individual and collective artistic growth, promoting mixed media/collage as a vibrant art form, and incorporating art into community service: Ann Breinig, Martha Bryans, Virginia Conover, Linnie Greenberg, Donna Meyers, Maxine Rosen, Arelene Solomon, Candace Stoudt and Prillie Bohlen.
This exhibit of varied mixed media collage works by the Delaware Valley Collage Collaborative will be on display from September 2 to 27, 2015 at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore, PA. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
