The Café Gallery at the Art School at Old Church is pleased to host an exhibition of collages by local artists on view through February 13th. The collage works in the show are created by students of the Art School faculty member Harriet Finck. This group of students interpreted Ovid’s Metamorphoses, a book of poetry comprised of over 250 myths to create collages. Cultures create mythology to explain the workings of the world and the interactions between gods, goddesses, and humans. By gathering inspiration from these mythological stories, the students found the stepping stones for their work.The idea of collage is to place one piece of printed material against another. Through this process, students have created unique works of art that are expressions of personal interpretations of Ovid’s myths.
