New Collages at Bruce Museum Exhibit

Four original collages will be on exhibit in Your Place Squared at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut from March 9th to June 2nd, 2019. 

The theme of the exhibit is your "special place." Do you have a special place that inspires, energizes, or comforts you? I do! The collages below represent some of my special places and places that inspire me.

Bruce Museum Exhibit Your Place Squared

Four of my original collages will be included in Your Place Squared, an exhibit opening March 9th at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. The theme of the exhibit is your special place, and each artwork is required to be  6 inches by 6 inches in size. Can you think of a special place that brings you joy or comfort? The collages I created for this exhibit were inspired by my love of nature and the outdoors. I pushed myself to incorporate techniques like paper weaving, and breaking the plane of the surface. I used new materials like wooden pegs, collaging on stretched canvas frames, and sealing with Mod Podge. I found the collaging process very exciting, and I am really happy with the results.

Join me for the opening of Your Place Squared at The Bruce Museum on March 9th!
