Workman Arts Collage Party

Saturday October 29 : 12:00pm-8:00pm
Workman Arts – 651 Dufferin Street

Workman Arts is an arts and mental health organization known internationally for its artistic collaborations, presentations, knowledge exchange, best practices and research on the impact of the arts on the quality of life of people living with mental illness and addiction.

The Collage Party is a nomadic studio made open to the public where participants come together to make art in a social setting. Since 1997, The Collage Party has been staged throughout North America and Europe in museums, private residences, public schools, universities, hospitals, department stores, and community centres.

Winnipeg artist Paul Butler’s multidisciplinary practice hinges on the logic of collage, from the traditional approach of combining collected-paper source materials to staging events focused on combining participants and establishing collaboration and community, always with a canny intuition for proximity and balance. Butler has exhibited at venues including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, White Columns in New York, Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland and La Maison Rouge in Paris.
