I like to use hand painted (acrylic) rice papers and textured papers with old book pages and old postage stamps. You can find out more information about this collage exchange at the end of this post.
There are a lot of good collage books:
- COLLAGE: Lost and Found by Giuseppina Cirincione
- COLLAGE ART by Jennifer L. Atkinson
- COLLAGE TECHNIQUES by Gerald Brommer
- COLLAGE FOR THE SOUL by Holly Harrison
- COLLAGE SOURCEBOOK by Quarry Books
Dale Copeland, a collage and assemblage artist, lives in Puniho, New Zealand. She is a former math and physics teacher who eventually made the life change to full time artist. She has a fabulous website which showcases her collage and assemblage works for sale. Her website also includes many links to other collage artists, collage exhibitions and opportunities and can be found here.
Soon, Dale will organize her 12th International Collage Exhibition & Exchange, in New Zealand. Artists are invited to send her up to 13 small collages. There is an opportunity to sell a collage, exhibit a collage and exchange collages with other participating artists. The deadline is March 20th, and you can find out more information here.
