"Putting It Together: The Art of Assembling" Call For Entry


Assemblage and collage involve the thoughtful combination of elements to create something new and original. Each process differs significantly when materials are chosen, collected, and combined with one another, however, the mentality of both techniques is to synthesize materials to produce a cohesive result. Putting It Together: The Art of Assembling will showcase assemblage and collage pieces alongside one another, combining both practices into an assembled collection of 2D and 3D artwork. This exhibition is open to all media but artists must utilize either assemblage and/or collage in their creations. All entries are due by Monday, June 20, 2016. Putting It Together: The Art of Assembling will open Friday, August 12 and close Friday, September 23, 2016. Three awards will be given at the opening reception, two $200 juror’s choice awards and a $500 or Going Solo exhibition juror’s choice award. Calls for entry are available online at foundryartcentre.org or at the Foundry Art Centre, located at 520 North Main Center in St. Charles, Missouri.
