This weekend one of our  favorite places Collage Collage turns 2! And there’s a weekend full of festivities to celebrate!


Erin Boniferro is the owner, head instructor, buyer, and paint brush cleaner of Collage Collage.

She is a practicing artist with 10 years of teaching experience that started in the back yard with her siblings and ended up at several large art organizations in greater Vancouver. She teaches a number of classes at Collage Collage, as well as maintaining her studio practice that always seems to end up involving textiles in some way, shape or form.


There are two workshops happening this weekend. One at Collage Collage on Friday and one at the Contemporary Art Gallery on Saturday. Workshops are inspired by the current exhibition at the CAG, To Create is to Relate by Sister Corita Kent.


To top it off there’s an art opening at Collage Collage by Kyu Hwang, a talented Vancouver artist who we’ve interviewed for Artsy!Dartsy! in the past. We highly recommend going to see the work in person.
