April 2020 BPA Gallery: Life as Collage
Life as Collage
Collage by Wendy Brown
Join us in the BPA Gallery April 3 for the First Friday Art Walk and an enjoyable evening of art and friends. The Oxford English dictionary describes collage as “A kind of surrealist 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 memories are made up of disparate pieces, Wendy Brown’s collages reflect an array of elements ranging from photos, to mementos, a cherished piece of ribbon, an old postcard, and buttons or beads. Drawing from items close to the heart, she hopes viewers will resonate with a pleasant memory, a dear friend or relative, or significant events in their lives.
Exhibit runs through April 27
BPA Gallery hours are 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Wednesday – Friday plus one hour prior to each performance. Please check with the BPA Box Office for specific exhibit dates, as the length of each show varies.
