The Foundry Art Centre is excited to present “Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling” to the community this May 31, 2019. This exhibition promises to be as much a collage of diverse artists as it is a collection of collage artworks. It includes forty-one artists from sixteen states, Belgium, Lithuania, and Canada. Juror Deborah Douglas, local mixed-media artist and Associate Professor of Art and Art History at St. Louis University, has thoughtfully selected fifty-five assemblage and collage artworks for this exhibition. The viewer will be struck by the combination of material and process utilized uniquely by each artist to communicate their idea into two or three dimensions.

Going Solo Award Winner from 2017 exhibition “Nth Degree”, Susan Campbell, will be exhibiting her artwork in Gallery III. Campbell is an interdisciplinary artist from Ontario, Canada. In “We Made (Pretend) Plans”, she “considers the ways that urban environments are manipulated and shaped. Campbell’s process of apprehending inscriptions and boundary marks found on site transpires into artworks which explore patterns of impermanence, perpetuated by technological developments in the production of space.”

California based Emerging Artist, Holly Boruck, will exhibit her body of work entitled “Zeitgeist Portraits” in the Ameristar Gallery. These oil portraits communicate a direct, emotional, physical, and wordless reaction to the question: “What is your outlook, response, frame of mind about the current state of the world?”

All exhibitions will open Friday, May 31, 2019, with a Juror’s Talk from Deborah Douglas in the Main Gallery at 5:30 pm. The Opening Reception will be from 6-8pm. The community is invited to attend the Opening Reception, enjoy light refreshments, and meet the exhibiting Artists. The exhibitions are free and open to the public at the Foundry Art Centre. “Putting It Together 2: The Art of Assembling”, “We Made (Pretend) Plans”, and “Zeitgeist Portraits”  will be on show May 31 - July 19, 2019.
