Celia Crane (b. 1977) is a collage artist, writer and independent curator who left her decades-long marketing career in 2019 to concentrate on creative work. In April 2020, she created Vayo, Rochester, New York's first dedicated collage gallery. Since then she has collaborated with hundreds of collage artists from around the world to expand the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the collage medium. Obsessed with the materiality of scraps, Crane creates collages from the vast supply of printed material and ephemera amassed over her lifetime of collecting.

DESIRE TO COMMUNICATE AND THE DESIRE TO HIDE."
