\n

Reclamation: New Trends i n Bay Area Collage and Assemblage will include selections by regio nal artists who have introduced fresh content and technique into the practi ce of cut-paper collage and found object assemblage\, injecting these tradi tions with new vitality and possibilities. Reclamation wil l open on September 2\, in conjunction with the Oakland Art Murmur's First Friday.

Reclamation will highlight new approach es to process and content including digitalization\, collaboration\, abstra ction\, and politicization. While some of these methods extend the working processes that have conventionally been used to fabricate collage and assem blage\, others influence the content in this contemporary work.

Playful\, mysterious\, narrative\, evocative\, critical\, and tactile\, th irteen contemporary artists introduce new material and conceptual approache s to the traditions of collage and assemblage through their work:

Susan Danis—assemblage\; Mieko Hara—mixed media collage\; Daniel Healey—c ollage\; John Hundt—collage\; Clint Imboden—assemblage\; Stephen Keyton—ass emblage\; David King—collage\; Michael Mew—digital mixed media collage\; Ca tie O’Leary—collage\; Sarah Ratchye—collage paintings\; Inez Storer—mixed m edia collage\; Tag Team (Tim Sharman &\; Walter Robinson)—collaborative mixed media collage

Jamie Brunson is a painter\, teacher\, criti c and independent curator. She studied painting at the California College o f the Arts (BFA\, 1978) and at Mills College (MFA\, 1983). As an independen t curator\, Brunson focuses on presenting the work of lesser-known or emerg ing artists in conjunction with work by established\, mature artists to und erscore the equivalences in their work. She also looks for patterns of ideo logical or thematic connection within the regional arts community. Brunson believes that working artists often have access to\, and recognize\, accomp lished artists who have been overlooked by the commercial art establishment . She uses her curatorial practice to bring these artists to the forefront\ , by creating a context for their work.
