Contemporary Collage: Paper's Many Forms

“Collage is the 20th Century’s greatest innovation.” ~Robert Motherwell

EMILY AMY GALLERY is pleased to present our fall exhibition, Contemporary Collage: Paper’s Many Forms, featuring gallery artists Paul Rousso and Cecil Touchon and first hand selections from the permanent collection of the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction. Selected works include collages and assemblages from fifteen countries as well as new pieces from invitational artists: Gary Bibb, Robert Mars, Joan Schulze, Caroline Waite. The artists featured are loosely associated by collage’s inadvertent conjuring of history. By utilizing recycled printed matter, both the distant and not-so-distant past are recalled with words, icons, fonts, and colors that could only be of a certain time. In their newfound form, these materials come to life and are forever immortalized by the artists who seek to revive them.
Contemporary Collage:  Paper's Many Forms is Forth Worth, Texas-based Cecil Touchon and Charlotte, North Carolina native Paul Rousso's first exhibition at Emily Amy Gallery. The show will open September 11th and continue through October 12th, 2009.  There will be an opening reception for the artists Friday, September 11, from 7 - 10 pm.
