Gathering Dust, Rust, and Relics: the Art of Found Object Assemblage and Collage will be featured at Chez Cheryl, a farmhouse art space near Baileys Harbor.
This exhibit will celebrate the creativity and insight which four artists bring to unlikely materials. Featured in this exhibit are Renee Hilgers, Pipka, Cynthia Wolfe and exhibit organizer Cheryl Stidwell Parker.
Hilgers, owner of Alchemy Fields, has created whimsical sculptures using sustainable resources, forming figures using cherry pits, combined with paper clay drawing and found object assemblage.
Pipka, known for her featured collectable figures in her Sister Bay shop, has been incorporating found objects, old books, and paper ephemera in her personal pursuit of the fine art of collage.
Work by Wolfe will include altered books, jewelry and sculptural forms in clay and paper. Her intricate folded paper works speak to her love of nature and her eye for repurposing discarded everyday objects.
Parker defines herself a passive aggressive collector of detritus, included in her car, desk drawers, and boxes. Much of her collage is political and other assemblages autobiographical.
Located at 8360 High Plateau Road west of Baileys Harbor, off EE, Chez Cheryl is open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays through Labor Day weekend. For more information call 920.421.1690.
