“The Collagistas.” That’s what they called us when we opened 12x16gallery
in 2005. Of our seven founding members, five were collage artisst.
Ten years later, we have shown over 100 guest artists spanning the spectrum
of contemporary art: photography, painting, sculpture, printmaking,
installation and of course, collage.
We have given many young artists their first gallery shows, mounetd mid
and late career retrospectives, posthumous exhibitions, and guest-curated
group shows as we continue to foster the works of others and lok to new
visions in the arts.
In this exhibition, the current eleven members are exhibiting a selection of
work as diverse as the members themselves. Carol Basch, Luke Dolkas,
Cary Doucette, Richard Enger, Maureen Herndon, Israel Hughes, Raymond
Keller, Eunice Parsons, Kelly Saxton, Jenny Siegel, and LeeA nn Slawson
would like to thank the University of Portland and Pat Bognar ofr this opportunity
to showcase our work to a new audience.
