Not so long ago, Portland, Oregon artist Liz Cohn inherited 125 decks of playing cards from her father-in-law’s private collection. She decided to use the large amount of cards as materials for a mail art collaboration project.
Kolaj Magazine has announced the creation of an artist directory that will serve as a tool for organizing and cataloguing artists who work in the medium of collage. Its audience includes the general public as well as independent curators, art venues, and writers. The editorial staff of Kolaj Magazine will use the Artist Directory to select artists to feature in the publication and to select artists for various curatorial projects. The Artist Directory exists as a public resource for those interested in collage as a medium and is designed to put interested parties in direct contact with artists.
