Thanks to J. Shea for letting us know about this assemblage art show at the ELVERHØJ MUSEUM in Solvang tomorrow night. From the pictures on the website, it looks like there will be some really great stuff there by many local artists.  I will be unable to make the opening reception tomorrow night, so if you can make it to this show please report back here to let us know what you thought. Or send an email to: nathan@sbartsblog.com and I’ll post your comment for you. 

APRIL 18 thru JULY 5
Reception April 18

APRIL 18 thru JULY 5

Opening April 18 in the art gallery is “Lost & Found.” Showcased in this provocative group show are multifaceted approaches to collage and assemblage art.  The diverse group of 22 jury-selected artists powerfully expresses the concept in use of materials and mediums as well as subject.  
A Jurors Award of $1,000 and other awards will be presented during the opening reception on Saturday April 18 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. The public is invited to meet and celebrate with the artists. There is no charge for admission.
The work shown in this special exhibit was selected by a trio of distinguished jurors from a field of more than 100 entries. “The jurists no doubt found their role challenging given the quality of work and the display space limitations,” said Esther Jacobsen Bates, Executive Director of Elverhoj Museum. “The resulting show is an exhilarating look at a very engaging art form.” 
Juror Rita A. Ferri is Visual Arts Coordinator and Curator of Collections for the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and has been an arts administrator and award-winning arts educator for over 25 years. Juror Debra McKillop teaches art at Ventura Community College is an artist, graphic designer, gallery manager, and curator. Frances Puccinelli has had an active role in many areas of the arts including juror, gallery owner, curator, organizational volunteer, consultant, retailer and collector.
Featured are collage and assemblage artists: Sima Ansari, R. Anthony Askew, Mike Brady, Barbara J. Cornett, Dale Cornwell, Kimberly Davis, Izzy Greer, Julian Harake, Gene Inglis-Ward, Robert Jensen, Thomas Larson, Syd McCutcheon, Patrick F. McGinnis, Barbara B. McIntyre, Diane Reuter, Launa D. Romoff, Mary Stanley, Marlene Struss, Susan Tibbles, Dug Uyesaka, Charlotte Valestra, and Pamela Zwehl-Burke.
