All Day Work Session for MCS Collage Artists

Surprise! Our February meeting will be an all-day
workday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We would
like to expand our Exquisite Corpse exhibit, so if
you never completed the one you started last year,
bring it along to work on, or start another body
part. Pat Pope will have 12 x 12” canvases
available for purchase at the meeting. This would
also be a good time to work on your Alphabetica
project for the April exhibit, or you can always
bring another project to work on as well.
Remember to bring along a lunch or munchies to
share with the group.
And don’t forget to bring your 3 x 5” collages (up
to three per person) for the MCS Collage
Challenge. We’ll vote on all the submissions, and
the two collages that receive the most votes will
appear on the cover of our 2008 Directory-
Handbook and the 2008 Membership Card. The
winning artists will each receive a free year’s

2008 MCS Collage Challenge!

Would you like to win a free year’s membership to MCS? Two lucky artists will do just that in the 2008 MCS Collage Challenge!

Bring up to three 3x5” collages to the February meeting and we will vote on them. The two top vote-getters will see their collages reproduced on our 2008 Handbook/Directory and our 2008 Membership Card, and will receive a one-year membership renewal.

Please note that the size of the collages has changed since the last challenge, and make sure your artwork is 3x5”. So find all those cool-looking little scraps you’ve been saving and start making some mini-collages!
