DESCRIPTION

This exhibition features the work of seven contemporary artists who approach collage in unique ways. From small detailed landscapes by Casey Ruble, to site-specific pieces covering two walls by Jennifer Williams, or the works of Leslie Hirst that combine graffiti, handmade lace and printing from antique books, the show will expose visitors to artists who explore new paths with collage. Through the use of different materials to create a unified work of art, the artists working in collage can offer multiple viewpoints and distinctions to a single idea. The artists participating in the collage exhibit are: Tamar Cohen, Megan Greene, Leslie Hirst, Casey Ruble, Raven Schlossberg, Maritta Tapanainen and Jennifer Williams.
