|A Baker's Dozen is
12 donuts plus 1 free sample. This is the basic concept for the
exchange. Except, to make it easier, we have changed it to a Baker's
Half Dozen Exchange: 6 & 1 - 6 to trade with other participants and
one for the Museum's collection to be archived for future study and
Artists each make UP TO 7 collages, up to size 11"x14" (inches), and send them to SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, to arrive by either March 21 or October 21. (you may also send as few as one for the collection)
Packages that arrive too late OR if there are not enough participants for the exchange will be held for the next exchange.
COST: PARTICIPATION IS FREE. ONLY INCLUDE RETURN SHIPPING COST OR SASE
SEND TWO COPIES OF THE DEED OF GIFT FORM
DOWNLOAD FORM TO MAIL IN
One collage is retained to be part of the permanent collection of the IMCAC, while remaining permanently on exhibition on the Museum's Internet site and possibly exhibited in future exhibitions held by the Museum. (feel free to include extra works for the permanent collection)
The other 6 are distributed into parcels which are sent back to each contributing artist. So you send 7 of yours, get back 6 of others.
Certain works from the various exchanges will be selected for representing the Museum's flagship collection to be used for traveling exhibitions and as such will be framed in matching museum frames as funds are available. This prestigious flagship collection will be chosen by the director as being among the finest works in the collection and promoted as important examples of 21st century collage art.
|WHAT TO DO:
Make UP TO 7 collages, up to 11" X 14" (including base or matting) . please work with these standard sizes: 6x4 or 5x7 or 8x10 or11x14 inches. This will allow the museum to use standard, ready made framing which helps to keep the costs down when and if works are exhibited.
PRINT and fill out the forms mentioned above.

|By taking part
in this exchange artists are agreeing to allow one of
their collages to become part of the permanent collection of the IMCAC.
Copyright of the work remains, as always, with the artist. While the copyright is retained by the artist, your participation in this exchange means that you grant unlimited and free copyright usage of the work donated to the IMCAC for the Museum's use for educational purposes, publications, publicity, fundraising, etc. as the museum deems appropriate.
The IMCAC shall, at its discretion, keep or dispose of works according to the needs of the collection as it develops which may include selling some works at some point in the future to raise funds for the collection (so far this has never happened).
The work of the Baker's Dozen exchange is accomplished on a volunteer basis by the founder of the exchange, Cecil Touchon and others who donate their time and effort and resources to help the museum become successful. All money raised during an official Collage Museum exchange is used directly for conducting the exchange and for the museum and its collection.
Because of our lack of funding any additional donations are much appreciated to help us frame and exhibit the best works of the collection and properly store and care for the collection as a whole. Thank you for your kind support and continued participation.
