February 6-21, 2010

Saturday, February 6, 6-9pm

We are pleased to have the renowned collage artist, Jonathan Talbot, as our Juror of Awards for our exhibition Putting-It-All-Together: Collage, Montage, and Assemblage.

Mr. Talbot’s work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art and in exhibitions sponsored by the US State Department and the Smithsonian. He is friend and supporter of collage artists everywhere.

Max Ernst said of collage, “Collage is the noble conquest of the irrational, the coupling of two realities, irreconcilable in appearance, upon a plane which apparently does not suit them.” Likewise it could be said of montage that it is an art of connecting disparate parts to create order from difference and assemblage is an activity of the mind projecting the supernormal in the organization of junk.
