Combine: A Group show of Cut Paper, Collage, and Assemblage

For May BLVD Gallery presents "Combine, A group show of Cut Paper, Collage, and Assemblage". The title of this show “Combine” is a reference to Robert Rauschenbergs term for the groundbreaking assemblage work that he made starting in the 1950's. This work as well as the amazing collages of artists like Romare Bearden, Paul Horiuchi, and a multitude of others have paved the way for the current generation of artists who are utilizing collage and assemblage in their work. Whether through the perspective of design or the traditional art world “Combine” takes a look at a group of artists that have incorporated collage in their work as a way to further explore the boundaries of what they are capable of outside of the tradition artistic media.
