Collage and Mixed Media at The Plastic Club is 121 unique works of art using every sort of media imaginable from traditional magazine rip-outs to Swarovsky crystals. The tradition of the art gallery is to hang every entry, this show was open to non-members, and then awards are selected from the entire show. This policy offers new artists a place to show along side more established ones but usually the quality is high, prize winners can be first time artists or art veterans. The collage show is fun and quirky, with Dada-esque ready-mades and Dali-inian surrealism, sculptures and photo-montages, micro to macro, the ground is evenly covered with eye catching extravagance.
