"Putting It Together" Exhibition Opening Reception
Assemblage and collage both involve the thoughtful combination of elements to create something new and original. Putting It Together: The Art of Assembling will showcase assemblage and collage pieces alongside one another in Gallery I & II from August 12 – September 23, 2016. Juried by Missouri State instructor and sculptor Kevin Hughes, this new exhibition will open with a reception on Friday, August 12 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. A gallery talk will be given at 5:30pm before the reception begins.
Alongside Putting It Together, Ohio sculptor Nathaniel Foley, award winner from the Foundry Art Centre’s 2014 exhibition Given Form, will exhibit in Gallery III. Foley’s Flight of Obscurity V explores the process, materials, and language of aviation through an installation of dynamic sculptures.
