This month: Wendy Brown, "Life is a Collage." Collages and mixed media.
Collage: (Oxford English) is a kind of surrealistic art in which bits of flat objects, as newspapers, cloth, pressed flowers, etc. are pasted together in incongruous relationship for their symbolic or suggestive effect.
"Just as our memories are made up of disparate pieces, my collages reflect items close the the heart...photos, mementos, a cherished piece of ribbon, an old postcard, a button or bead in the hopes of resonating with a pleasant memory, a dear friend or relative or a significant event by the viewer."
Wendy's exhibit will be available for viewing in the newly remodeled meeting room all of January and can also be viewed on the library website, www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org. You can also listen to a podcast interview on What's Up Bainbridge at (https://www.bestofbcb.org/wu-394-wendy-brown-collages/).
Free, light refreshments provided. Sponsored by Bainbridge Public Library: www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org
