Past Exhibition –

The past exhibition at monca is Collage: Deconstruct/Reconstruct featured almost 60 Northern California artists and their original collage artwork, both 2D and 3D.

Exhibition Dates: May 18 – July 9, 2023

The visual art of collage allows for the exploration of different textures, colors, patterns, and forms, often resulting in a dynamic and visually stimulating final piece. It can be used to convey narratives, explore abstract concepts, or simply create visually striking compositions by juxtaposing diverse elements together.

In the art of creating a collage, the artist makes the choices, creates the atmosphere, and poses the questions. It’s up to us, as the viewers, to interpret and appreciate the process and the outcomes.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 19, from 6 pm – 8 pm.
