- Burlington County Library
At Albert’s 2-hour programs all participants are invited to hear a short presentation by the artist, he will walk the participants through his exhibition & show a selection of his posters in addition to the gallery exhibition, and then create their own collage in his style using the same materials he likes to use, namely the printed cardboard packages of consumer products (including but not limited to Cereal Boxes, which are his favorite!)
Finally, all participants will receive a special art gift, compliments of the artist. They can each pick one of a selection of about 20 of his self published limited edition prints which he will give out & sign for FREE as a special thank you for attending.
