Paper, Process and Perception

1040 Dunham Road
St. Charles, IL
The Midwest Collage Society will exhibit 113 original collage, mixed media and assemblage works, by 33 artists, at the Dellora A. Norris Cultural Arts Center. The theme of the show, Paper, Process and Perception, encompasses each individual artists' perception of the world through paper, wood, fabrics and other canvases
Mixed media collage has moved beyond the era of cut and paste and is now considered one of the most exciting fields of fine art. Today's mixed media collage artists push the boundaries of this fine art form, using anything and everything to create fascinating textures and illusions. Adding objects, handmade papers, image transfers and layers of paint, they create original works of art.
The quintessential recyclers, many artists find a treasure of inspiration in rescued items headed for the landfill. They re-purpose, they re-create, they re-new what was not wanted into desired artwork.
The art of creative expression makes this exhibit intriguing and exciting to see. Each piece will have a process description next to it, so the viewer can see what elements and techniques were used to create the work. Visitors to the exhibit will come away with a fresh perspective of collage , mixed media and assemblage.
Paper, Process and Perception opening reception is July 9, 2010 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm.
