Event Description

MAG HAGS - work from Northampton’s finest collage artists

A group of notorious collagers present "MAG HAGS" at A.P.E. Gallery. These collage pieces are all hand-done, revisiting the old tradition—pre-Photoshop, post National Geographic. Co- curated by Jono Tosch and Rachel B. Glaser, MAG HAGS will showcase collage work from a range of artists. The curators focused on work that upholds and pushes the definition of traditional collage, highlighting its underlying principles: scrappiness, reuse, frugality, re-organization, wit, and invention.

Collage is heroic because it reclaims. It recycles the products of corporation and business, it messes up the organized and planned. In a time fueled by digital appropriation, MAG HAGS presents the new artworks made with old papers and glue. Contributing artists include Dan Cashman, Liz Diamond, Angela Zammarelli, Jena Sujat, Ryan Feeney, Emily Hunt and Ben Estes. As collage bad boy, Frank Sidebolt said, “You can go ahead and ram a couple images together with your computer and call it collage. I will be out back gluing your soul to the fence.”

Hours:
Monday-Thursday & Sunday: 12-5pm
Friday & Saturday: 1-8pm
