CLIPS: Birmingham Collage Collective launches its first exhibition

CLIPS Birmingham Collage Collective

Having been a member of Stirchley Collage Club for the past year and with some pieces shown in a couple of open call shows, I'm both pleased and proud to announce that I'll be part of Birmingham Collage Collective's first exhibition opening next week.

I'll be joining a bunch of talented analogue collage artists – including Adam Wynn (@ripitup_startagain), who started the collective, and Mark Murphy (@moif_collage), who helped put the show together. Other collage artists showing their work include:

Gareth Courage
Ruth Harvey
Joe Joseph
Barbara Gibson
Geometric Anna
Hazel Pitt (whose photomontage course I did at the Mac in 2017)
Molly Cleaver
Kali Louise
George Caswell
Sophie Chadwick
Tom Kennedy
and me… Fiona Cullinan.

The exhibition launch is from 6pm next Friday 26 April in Studio 4 Gallery at our favourite framers – The Framers – in Digbeth, and sponsored by Old Blue Last Beer. The show will run until Saturday 11 May, alongside Digbeth First Friday and the Flatpack Film Festival, which takes place in and around the Custard Factory.

Want to join in? There will also be a collage workshop to coincide with World Collage Day from 4-7pm on Saturday 11 May. Book early, it's already looking busy and many of the artists will be attending.

I think I will have two CLIPS up on the wall:

When in Birmingham / 2018
Eyelines and Skylines / 2017

More collage and works in progress are posted to my collage Instagram: @editoriat.

Hope to see you at the show!
