The San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center is pleased to present a group exhibition of work by members of the Collage Artists of America. “Artists Choice!” will run from May 27th to June 14th 2015 with an opening reception Saturday May 30th from 5-7pm.
From Picasso to Hannah Hoch, Pop Art to Photoshop, we are living in the age of collage. In all walks of life, collage is used for communication, entertainment, education and more. The Collage Artists of America create a community of artists who follow this long history of creativity using any and every material available.
Established in 1988, the Collage Artists of America was founded by nine Los Angeles-area women proficient in a variety of media who sought to expand their creativity to encompass collage and assemblage. Two years later the current name of the organization was adopted and membership has grown across the United States. Many members are or have been instructors at all levels of education and exhibit widely both nationally and internationally.
Juror Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles California. She received her BA in Art History and her MA in Studio Art from California State University at Northridge.
She has an active life in the arts, previously teaching art history at Antelope Valley College and Pasadena City College, forming an artist collective in Los Angeles and organizing and curating numerous art exhibitions. Most recently, she founded Shoebox PR to help visual artists create a presence in the art world. She is currently the President, social media, advertising and marketing manager of the Brewery Artwalk Association. She is also the social media manager for the Southern California Women’s Caucus of Art.
Sitting on two non-profit art boards, Kristine is given the opportunity to assist local artists build a community of like-minded people with powerful ideas, who can share resources, and bring their dreams to life. Over the past few years, Kristine has organized a couple of art collectives where artists often meet to get feedback on their work, talk about the business and help each other navigate the perilous waters of the art world. Kristine’s passion is supporting artists and providing access to art for those who wouldn’t normally have the means to do so. She believes in building communities that bring people together and helping to make dreams come true.
