Assemblage is the gathering together and assembling of a number of three dimensional objects into a composition. Pieces may be freestanding or constructed inside a container such as a box, discarded drawer or shipping crate. Work may be created using a single material such as wood or metal, or may bring together a large variety of objects like old toy and doll parts, household items, clothing jewelry and photographs. Items are usually glued, soldered welded or wired together.
Mixed media refers to a work of art that was created using more than one art medium: an ink drawing combined with watercolor or a pencil drawing on top of an acrylic background. It is used to describe work that combines multiple techniques and media: a stretched canvas covered with papers, paint, cloth, leaves and wired mesh, or a wood panel collaged with papers, texture with plaster or molding paste and then painted. They may be more three-dimensional than a traditional collage.
Please consider making an art donation to this worthy cause. Small works are a big hit. Dig into your stash of completed artwork and donate to a good cause.
