an online collage exhibition.

In August 2018 - we opened ‘CUT IT OUT’ a collage exhibition at Smart Casual Gallery in Fremantle. Thirteen artists contributed over 60 collage-based 2D and 3D artworks to a create a really dynamic and fun show. 

We’ve been talking for a while about doing it again… and thought LET’S DO A SPECIAL ISOLATION EDITION of CUT IT OUT, with the show presented as an online gallery, opening on Friday 5th June, 6pm.

As this is a special edition of CUT IT OUT, the framework will be different. We have decided to open the submissions, meaning anyone, anywhere can submit work. All you need is paper, scissors, glue and something to cut up.
