Shear Madness

at the Northville Art House in Northville, Michigan, USA
13 January-6 February 2021

“Shear Madness” showcases the possibilities of collage through sixty-two works by sixty artists from the United States, Canada, and Switzerland.

Juror Edee Joppich writes, “The collage medium often involves a dialectic between concealing and revealing. This process can create drama and authenticity to a work. The artists in this exhibition have demonstrated the endless possibilities of collage, many of whom have created works I have never dreamed of during my five decades of sharing, teaching, and jurying art.” Joppich is a member of the International Society of Experimental Artists and a Signature Member of the National Collage Society.
