The Nashville Collage Collectivewas formed in the Summer of 2010. Founding members, Lisa Haddad, Randy L. Purcell, Eva Sochorova and robert bruce scott , began exchanging materials, works-in-progress and ideas in a range of collage techniques. This hands-on collaboration has defined our process ever since. We invite all artists in the Nashville area to join the collective, explore and share the art of collage at monthly gatherings, share materials and ideas and contribute to online posts and gallery exhibits. “like” us on fb at: https://www.facebook.com/NashvilleCollageCollective

Collaborations by robert bruce scott, Eva Sochorova, Randy L Purcell and Lisa Haddad – “The Four Corners”
Our House – In our more recent, larger-scale collaborations the theme “house” emerged. The four of us, having come from divergent backgrounds and communities have unique ideas about house or home, but we’ve found a way to merge and blend them into what we hope are cohesive images.
As with all our collaborations collages are passed back and forth until at least one artist calls them “done” – these in particular include torn elements from older pieces.
First Nashville Collage Party – On Sunday Nov. 14 we hosted a community studio day open to area artists and friends.
