Created in May 2018, Quebec Collage is an initiative to promote collage in Quebec through web, diffusion, local and some international open calls, interviews, workshops, exhibitions and opportunities for creators to get together and collaborate.

The artists featured in this exhibition are local professional collagists, alongside a few newcomers in the collage world initiated during a collage workshop hosted by Virginie Maltais, Quebec Collage founder and artist, including Jesse Bouffard, Stéphanie Filion, Mara Laika, Patricia Doucet, Karine Demers, Camille Nepveu, Francois-Xavier Vigneault-Marcil, Alain Lapierre, and Frédérick Ouellet.

There will be an open holiday market at BRiX on Sunday, 15 December from 11AM-4PM where members of Quebec Collage will be selling some of their art.
