Northwest Collage Society | September 10-October 26, 2018
Artists' Reception: Thursday, September 13, 6:30-8 pm

Celebrate collage with works by the Northwest Collage Society. Artists Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso coined the term collage (from the French coller, meaning "to glue") at the beginning of the 20th century, when the art form became a distinct part of the modernist movement. Today, NWCS fosters appreciation for and interest in collage, the practice of assembling different media to create a distinct work of art. Members come from diverse backgrounds, including painting, printmaking, graphic design, sculpture, and glass and fiber arts. Learn more about NWCS at

Please note: Artists' Reception dates and times are subject to change. Call 206-275-7609 to confirm.
