Collaborative Classics

The masterpiece selected for 2024 is Klimt’s “Tree of Life.”

Members assembled all 35 pieces and were finally able to admire the full project at our May 28th meeting before sending off to be framed.

Packets were distributed at the February membership meeting and due back at the April meeting. You can still check out our Facebook page to view individual pieces!

AGMF’s annual group project asks members to create just one section of a larger artwork that is then reassembled to display as a whole. Participants have two months to work on their piece of the selected masterpiece. Sections are handed out randomly and artists are encouraged to use their own personal artistic style to represent their assigned section as they see fit.

The strength of this project lies in the fact that all of the participants, combining their individual artistic mediums and styles, contribute to the success and beauty of the artwork as a whole. The piece showcases the extraordinary talent within the Guild.

Our final Collaborative Classics can be found throughout our Village.
