20th Annual Postcard Show artist benefits
Artists will benefit from being a participating member of the National Collage Society. This will give each artist the opportunity to enter the juried exhibit in the fall. The main annual national exhibit in the Fall has become so large in scope that many artists cannot be accepted. The jury selects an average of 20% from the total entries. For this NCS members postcard exhibit, 100% are accepted. This exhibition does not count toward Signature Member status. One awards judge will select several artists for a cash award. Merit certificates will be created for honorable mentions. The awards judge and amounts have not been determined as of yet. In previous years, awards have averaged $50 each.
The goal of the National Collage Society is to foster the appreciation and interest in the recognized medium of collage. Collage has been identified and defined during the twentieth century. The NCS advances the stature of collage as a major art medium and assists in the public education through exhibits and workshops, lectures, and publications. NCS is supported by its members who pay $35.00 per year (a tax deductible donation to the art foundation, exempt under 501(c)3 classification with the I.R.S.). Memberships imply a dedication to our purpose as stated in the Articles of Incorporation.
