The exhibit theme of PUSHING BOUNDARIES is meant to be interpreted in many ways. Whatever type of collage or assemblage you do, it is an opportunity to experiment using your current work as a platform and push it further. Growth happens when boundaries get pushed. You can push them just a little or a lot. You may even wind up in an entirely new direction. It’s all up to you where you want to go with this!
