Humans, it seems, have a desire to give coherence to fragments, to put them together and make meaning. Collage reflects this tendency toward narrative, colliding clips and scraps to create physical — and metaphorical — coherence. Main Street Art's upcoming exhibit "The Assembled Image" showcases the collages and collage-inspired work of Denton Crawford (mixed media, acrylics, and sculpture), Lynne Feldman (acrylics and fabric collage), Gerald Mead (photographs and found objects), Andrea Pawarski (ceramic fragments, wood, and coral), and St. Monci (paintings of arranged collages).These artists' widely divergent styles, materials, and processes make for a show that matches the medium.
The opening reception for "The Assembled Image" is on Saturday, March 7, at Main Street Arts, 20 West Main Street, Clifton Springs. 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Exhibit runs through April 30. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Free. mainstreetartsgallery.com
