National Collage Society

Susan Shurish's "Balance" (13x9 , acrylic paint, various papers, leaf) was juried into the 26th Annual Juried Exhibit of the National Collage Society.

"The goal of the National Collage Society is to foster the appreciation and interest in the recognized medium of collage. Collage has only been identified and defined during the twentieth century. The NCS, Inc. advances the stature of collage as a major art medium and assists in the public education through exhibits and workshops, lectures and publications. "

Engineers Without Borders


"Engineers Without Borders creates opportunities for rural Africans to create positive change in their lives. By harnessing the skills and creativity of the Canadian engineering sector, we work to find practical solutions to one of the world’s most urgent problems – extreme poverty."

All proceeds from Perspectives of Africa will support their work with rural farmers in Ghana which is helping farmers support their families and grow successful businesses through farming. In addition, it will help support two short-term (4 month) overseas volunteers from the University of Western Ontario EWB chapter. If you would like more information on EWB or on the University of Western Ontario EWB chapter please visit: http://www.ewb.ca/en/index.html or http://www.uwo.ewb.ca/.
