Riverview Station

Bridget Benton at 310 Art
Free Second Saturday Collage Make & Take
12:00 – 4:00 PM
“On September 11, artist and art teacher, Bridget Benton, invites visitors to dive into one of her
favorite mediums — collage! Drop by 310 Art at Riverview Station in Asheville’s River Arts District
between noon and 4pm and stay for a while to make your own art! The 310 Art classroom will be set
up and ready for art making! Packs of free collage fodder will be given out to visitors while supplies
last, and glue sticks and scissors will be available for guest use. The collage fodder will include paper
items that are often discarded, emphasizing reuse and ecologically sound art making.
Guests are invited to make several collages sized, 3”x3” and 4×4” and will then have the option of
donating one back to 310 Art to be combined with other student work i to larger works which will be
sold through 310 Art, with proceeds beyond material costs to be donated to 310 Art’s Emerging Artist
Scholarship Fund. 310 Art is the oldest art school for adults in the River Arts District, offering
instruction in a variety of mediums.

“I love collage. It’s such an accessible art form. Anyone can do it, and yet fine artists have also used
collage as a medium for over 100 years. While digital collage is certainly popular, I’m seeing a real
resurgence of artists using traditional methods like cutting and pasting. That’s what we’ll be inviting
folks to do this weekend!”
While Benton hopes this will encourage adults to flex their creative muscles, children are welcome if
accompanied by an adult.
Benton will also be sharing two 24”x 24” collaborative collages started during a World Collage Day
event in May of this year – each incorporating over a dozen mini-collages contributed by community
participants. Smaller collaborative pieces and donated collages will also be for sale.
“Art making can be such a solo activity. It’s wonderful to do this kind of collaborative work – I get
inspired watching everyone work and seeing what they create!” — Bridget Benton
