National Collage Society: Annual Small-Format Exhibition

Collage offers artists unparalleled opportunities to create concepts and designs and lend a sense of texture that simply isn’t possible through other mediums. Visual elements are thoughtfully combined, producing a new image that conveys a message or idea.

The Ohio-based National Collage Society hosts a small-format exhibition each year, featuring postcard-size (4-by-6-inch) works of collage by NCS members across the United States and contributors worldwide. The 26th edition of what originally was called the Postcard Show is open to the public for 10 weeks in the Kansas City Public Library’s second-floor Rocky and Genevieve Mountain Gallery.

It features collages from dozens of artists across the U.S. and abroad. The breadth of entries showcases this often understated yet challenging and highly rewarding form of artmaking and the many talented individuals who embrace it.
