The Call for Artists for Collage Mania 2009, a Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, is now up here.
All materials are acceptable, but collages should contain some fiber (paper, fabric, or other fibrous material). There are no restrictions on content or style.
Collages may be any size and finished in any manner, but they must be either finished or mounted to 8"x10″. The orientation may be either horizontal or vertical.
I have volunteered to take the lead on this year's Collage Mania, so please email me if you plan to participate. I'll also be the one receiving and processing your jpegs this year.
The deadline to send your jpegs to me is April 1, 2009.
Collage Mania will be held May 5 - 7, 2009. All collages will be offered for a minimum donation of $80 to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause on Gold Donor Day, May 5. On May 6-7, all remaining collages will be available for a minimum donation of $40. Since this is a fundraiser, patrons are encouraged to donate more if they are able.
Collage Mania 2008 raised $13,000 for the American Cancer Society in two days. Our goal for Collage Mania 2009 is to raise $20,000 for the American Cancer Society in three days. I hope you will join us!
