Onions, 2008, Naomi S. Adams

Check out the 235 donated collages that you could purchase next week on Virginia Spiegel’s site! There are 21 pages of gorgeous collages to choose from. You can read about the 4 collages I donated here.

Collage Mania II opens Monday, May 5 at 9 a.m. (collages for a donation of at least $80) and continues May 6 (collages for a donation of at least $40). Thanks to the generosity of the donating artists, 100% of the proceeds are donated directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause.

There are so many collages that I am drooling over, but I’ll just blog about one I keep returning to. It’s just so colorful and bright! Check out Gerrie Congdon’s Kimono Collage. You have to scroll down to find it, as Virginia wants everyone to peruse as much art as possible and donate $$ for some collages! Happy collaging.
