COLLECTive Concerns: Collage and Assemblage

COLLECTive Concerns: Collage and Assemblage is available for booking.  

Twelve artists explore collage and assemblage as a coping mechanism, siren call, or cautionary warning for collective concerns that impact our culture.  Their “collections” are focused on environmental, emotional, and societal stressors; collective concerns that address climate change, covid, grief, identity, and politics.  Whimsical to macabre; refined to raw, poetic to strident; these intimate works pack a hefty punch that belie their small scale. Assembled from discarded but highly curated materials, each artist presents a unique collection of works that speak to the challenges posed by unprecedented times.  

Size of Exhibition:  Approximately 110 – 150 running feet (walls) + open areas for pedestal works.
Exhibition may be sized to suit your gallery specifications.   

Number of Works: 12 “collections” that include 92 small wall mounted works and 45 small 3-d works to be installed collectively on pedestals, shelves or in cabinets / cases.
