The Collage Artists of America membership show, “Just your Imagination” was held at the San Fernando Valley Arts and Cultural Center. The show runs Sept 4-29th and the reception was on Sept 7th. As part of my contribution to the show, I sat in the gallery on the afternoon before the reception. It was quite during much of the afternoon though there were several families turned up with kids to have an art lesson.
I had forgotten my kindle so I had plenty of time to enjoy the exhibit in detail.
My entry was right next to the front door!
Assemblage is allowed, so we have sculpture too.
My show favorite is on the left there. I also serendipitously met with a friend who came to see the show, and this was her favorite too. It did not win an award.
A lot of figurative and portrait work.
I did like the tree piece and the one on the right, which also contained a tree.
The large green creation near to us took second place. My pic of the winner did not come out well, sorry.
I talked to this lady at length as we were the only ones in the gallery early on.
Getting ready for the reception.
Loved the piece on the right, though I felt it was more painting than collage.
Great crowd at the reception! I still didn’t win an award….
1. A friend of mine from way back, Susanne Belcher, had 3 pieces in this show. Don’t know if you saw her work. Your piece is in one of the photos on her FB page but I can’t share it because it isn’t public.
2. Artist Co-op7, of which I was a founding member, teaches classes at the SFVACC. They were founded in 1989, and have been offering classes since 1995. Time flies!! I feel really old!
3. My favorites never win a prize. Just goes to show there’s no accounting for taste😋
4. I really like your piece!
