Collage Mania 2009

Deadline: April 1, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Collage Mania 2009

Fiberart for a Cause
Collage Mania 2009 Goal: $20,000

All proceeds go directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause

Guidelines: (truncated)

All materials are acceptable, but collages must contain some fiber (paper, fabric, or other fibrous material). There are no restrictions on content or style. Do keep in mind the inherent quality of a collage as an assembled artwork. Art quilts are, of course, acceptable.

Collages may be any size and finished in any manner, but they must be finished or mounted to 10x8" (25.4 cm x 20.3 cm). The orientation may be either horizontal or vertical.

Size the collage itself to match your pricing scheme as all collages will be offered for a minimum $40 donation through Fiberart For A Cause to the American Cancer Society on May 6 and May 7.
May 5 will be Gold Donor Day; Gold Donor Patrons may choose collages for a minimum donation of $80.

While there is a minimum donation, patrons are encouraged to donate a bit more if they can for a favorite collage. Our goal this year is $20,000.

Limit ten collages per artist.

Collages will be sent by you directly to their purchaser.
