Gathering: Assemblage, Collage, and In-Between 

When: June 29-13 2008

Found materials, bursting with metaphor, have the power to lend layers of meaning to assemblage and collage artworks. Witness the products of the four artists in the Oakland Museum of California's Off-Site Exhibition, Gathering: Assemblage, Collage and In-Between. Livia Stein uses her own drawings as the basis for her monoprints with added handwork, as in her Little Bird. For Mary V. Marsh's Mitosis (2006), the detritus of a defunct library - old file cards, book covers, etc. - provides the substrata for her ink and gouache work. Barbara Kronlins rounds up bits and pieces of ephemera for her densely allusive mixed-media on paper. Thread, buttons, found photographs, and similar homey objects aggregate in Lisa Kokin's Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State (2001) and, thanks to the title as much as to the materials, assume an immediate reference point. The artists' work is on display through June 13, 2008 at the Oakland Museum of California's downtown location, Mondays through Fridays.
