Last week, Tiger Trap Studio in Troy, opened its doors for the first of what I hope will be many Collage Nights. Scissors ran wild as hosts, artist and educator, Ira Marcks and collaborator, Caroline Corrigan, shared their collection of books, magazines, and ephemera with friends, and with each new guest came a treasure trove of material, from back issues of National Geographic to a taxidermy supply catalog.
The event was such a success that plans are underway for another Collage Night slated for Thursday, May 16th from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. and open to the public. As space is limited, please sign-up in advance at tigertrapstudio.com/events. All materials, from scissors and glue to drinks and snacks, will be provided, but don’t let that stop you from bringing something of your own.
Take a look at the gallery for a few photographs from Collage Night, and don’t miss Fernando Orellana‘s stop-motion animation below. If you like what you see, make it a point to head to Tiger Trap in May. You won’t be disappointed, and you might even win a bouquet from Flower Scout.
