Rehoboth Art League holds Assembly Collage opening

April 14, 2018

The Rehoboth Art League held an opening reception for its Putting it Two-Gether Assemblage and Collage exhibition April 6. Lee Wayne Mills and Rose Minetti displayed their assemblage, collage and Arte Provera works in the Tubbs Gallery. The show runs through May 7.

Collage comes from the French word “coller,” meaning “to glue,” and is the artistic process of gluing and assembling various materials to a flat surface. Assemblage is a form of sculpture comprised of found objects arranged in such a way that they create a work of art.

Arte Provera, poor or impoverished art, was the most significant and influential avant-garde movement to emerge in Europe in the 1960s. It grouped the work of around a dozen Italian artists, whose most recognizable trait was their use of commonplace materials, such as earth, rocks, clothing and tar paper, to evoke a pre-industrial age feeling.

Also on display was the Coastal Camera Club’s jurored Abstractions exhibit and Chloe Irla showed her innovative works documenting the first years of motherhood.
