ABOUT OPEN COLLAGE NIGHT
A low-key, high-fun collage experience awaits at a monthly, open collage night sponsored by the Independent Publishing Resource Centre (IPRC) in Portland, Oregon. Held the second Wednesday of the month, the event is open to experienced collagists and those who are interested in learning more about collage. The event celebrated its 2nd anniversary in September. Portland collagists Leslie Harper, A.M. O’Malley and Kevin Sampsell curate the event. The organizers provide magazines, collage materials, some scissors, glue and ambiance, but plan on bringing some of your own materials and a donation to the IPRC (if you are able).
Kevin Sampsell said about the event, “The IPRC is…an epicentre for Portland DIY creatives with a lot of space and a wonderful staff. People don’t even have to bring anything if they don’t want to. There are tubs of books and magazines and plenty of scissors and glue sticks. At the Open Collage Nights we’ve had so far, everyone has had such a good time and people have been super focused. I love that this is happening here in Portland.”
