Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Winter Valley Collage Group
Monday July 2, 2018
This month there will be a colorful display of collages shown in our gallery by the Winter Valley Collage Group. This collaboration started sometime in 2015. Liz O'Rourke is the Activities Coordinator at Winter Valley and a lifelong artist. She had been creating collages for approximately 5 years under the tutelage of Sandra Shuman, a collage artist, friend and instructor and was excited about a new piece. Liz showed it to Abe Salzman, an artist and resident of Winter Valley. He loved the idea of collage, and a week later he showed Liz his first collage piece. He was inspired and on fire! From there, Abe introduced collage to other residents, offering free instruction and guidance in a weekly workshop. There have been several collage showings at Winter Valley and one at Fuller Village Brush Hill recently. Abe has also instructed collage classes at Simon C. Fireman's House in Randolph and Unquity House in Milton. The collages are made from cut-out paper images taken from magazines, old books and other assorted media. Rubber cement and glue sticks are used to adhere the paper pieces and other items to foamcore, matboard or card stock. For more information, contact Liz O'Rourke at (617) 755-3560 and please don't miss this lovely exhibit during July at the Library. The names of the artists are: Abe Salzman, Mark Whall, Mary Douglas, Robert Turner, Charlene McLellan, Peggy Walsh and Liz O'Rourke. There will be a free and open reception also held for this exhibit on Thursday evening, July 19th, from 6-8 PM in the Gallery where you can meet all these talented artists. Please join us.
