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.
