Assemblage is described as an artistic composition made from scraps, junk, and odds and ends (as of paper, cloth, wood, stone or metal). Curated by Barbara Fast, this exhibition grew out of her recent “Assemblage” workshop. It will include works created by workshop participants, as well as other artists working in the medium. 2-D and 3-D art appropriate for indoor or outdoor display will be accepted.

Assemblage-B.Fast225x300All artists are invited to submit art. Fill out this online “Assemblage” registration form, or pick one up at the Arts Center and return it by Tuesday, December 15.

Barbara Fast, now retired from a demanding career as a pediatric surgeon, has long been a collector of objects she has found beautiful or interesting. Many of these objects have been incorporated into art pieces of her design and construction. She has collected several boxes of rusty metal and enjoys creating “rusty art”. Self trained as an artist in several courses at Gualala Arts and elsewhere, Barbara was specifically asked to teach this workshop due to her recognized skills in multi-media art.
