Check It Out at the Berkeley Art Center

The Berkeley Art Center in Live Oak Park is now hosting Check It Out, the Round Table [Collaboration] Community Collaborative Collage Project.

‘Borrow’ a collage-in-progress, take it home for up to 21 days and contribute to that progress. Make any alterations you like, and return it to the BAC to be checked out by the next collaborator.

Be the first to work on a collage and reserve the opportunity to complete that collage after three other collaborators have contributed.

To participate, visit the Berkeley Art Center, 1275 Walnut Street, Berkeley, Wednesday through Sunday, 11am-5pm.

Selections from the first seven years of the Postal Collage Project on display in the lobby of the Berkeley Art Center through December 21.

Recent Retrospective

The recent retrospective exhibition, Seven Years of the Postal Collage Project, was a powerful personal experience for me, and I consider it among the most important exhibitions in my 25 years of art life.

The sheer magnitude of creativity to be seen in 500 richly detailed collaborative collages was, at times, staggering. No less overwhelming was the gratitude I felt toward the 250+ collaborators who, together, made a bold reality out of a simple idea. My continuing, heartfelt thanks to these friends and colleagues, friends-of-friends and colleagues-of-colleagues.

Postal Collage Project No. 8 is currently underway, and will be exhibited in Spring 2019. I aim to present another retrospective, 10 Years of the Postal Collage Project, in Summer 2021.
