“It is always fun to look at visual images if they are created by inventive, devoted artists. It was a pleasure to view the work presented by the collage artists here. There were individual voices shown in this grouping, personal visions shared, humor slyly included, mystery presented; the difficulty was in selecting a cohesive but representative group.
Usually the juror is given too few places for display by the venue. Online exhibits can solve that problem. This was a humbling task to show a tempting view of the Collage Artists' exciting variety and expertise. One can only hope to see these in person in the future. And there are many more to be seen from this group!” – Bonese Collins Turner
