Congratulations to OAL member Christine Guillot Ryan on her work featured in ‘Collage 2015’ at the Concourse Gallery in Upper Arlington.

Collage 2015 features the artwork of six contemporary artists, Louise Captein, N. Penney Denning, Egle’ Gatins, Martin Hugo, Margee Bright-Ragland, and OAL member artist Christine Guillot Ryan, who explore a wide range of approaches to the media of collage and mixed media collage.

Collage came out of the studio and into the exhibition halls early in the 20th century when Cubism fractured the traditional images of painting and sculpture.  Often called the poor artist’s medium, it enabled the artist to be spontaneous and flexible, to move elements around quickly before committing to a final composition.
