Collage tends to have a bad reputation in the art world, often viewed as "crafty" and not really a serious art form. But the list of famous artists that have dabbled in collage or used it as their main medium is pretty impressive including: Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, Otto Dix, Robert Rauschenberg, George Grosz, Ray Johnson, David Hockney, and Jean Dubuffet.
So with that in mind, The Funhouse Gallery is proud to present an all collage group show. Featuring a wide variety of collage techniques including 3 dimensional assemblage. Will include the work of 30+ local, national and international artists. Full list of artists coming soon.
And in the Side Show Gallery, ceramics by Kelly Kaatz:
The creation of forms using hand building techniques, with minimal use of tools, ables me to further the idea of clay as a natural material. The essence of my methods are embodied in my work, and each serve as narrative to the other. All of my pieces are organic and fluid which makes them comfortable and exciting to use on an everyday basis.
