First Friday Reception • June 7
Audrey Smith from Towson, Maryland is a collage artist who began experimenting with collage in 1990 after discovering the work of Max Ernst and the Dada art movement. Around 2007 she began creating collages in a Moleskine sketchbook as a creative exercise, and it soon became her main focus. Smith says, “Collage and assemblage marries what I love about painting and sculpture, and it creates for me a constant challenge as I explore new methods and materials.” Smith’s collages are small works brightly filled with imagery of birds, anatomical drawings unexpectedly paired and often topped with sprig of perfectly placed polka dots. Audrey Smith will be in attendance for her opening night June 7th at gallery 6 pdx.
