three assemblage artists -- one fantastic show
I don't generally venture out to openings on my own and I nearly didn't go tonight -- but wow -- am I ever glad I did!
Three very different assemblage artists, each with a very distinct and strong artistic voice, are showing together in "Part of a Whole" at Art & Ideas in Plymouth, MI. The show runs through July 2.
Each artist gave a brief talk, explaining the thread that runs through her collection of work for this show. It was a packed house and I was totally captivated by each artist's story. Admittedly, I am fairly new to opening receptions, but this is the first one I've attended with the artist(s) speaking about their work and telling a bit about various pieces...what a wonderful idea and a marvelous way to be introduced to an artist who was previously unknown to me. I really really really enjoyed myself!
