The Detroit Artists Market

Pieced Together Press Release

Posted on May 12, 2017 at 3:49

(DETROIT) – The Detroit Artists Market is pleased to present Pieced Together, an art exhibition featuring twelve artists working in the mediums of construction, assemblage and collage.

With the advent of the 20th century, not only did the style of art undergo radical changes but with Cubism and Dada, so did the materials used to make art. Assemblage became an integral form of contemporary art making. From the beginning, objects with references to contemporary times and events were incorporated into the work of the early masters such as Duchamp, Picasso, Tatlin, Schwitters, Man Ray, and Joseph Cornell.

In Detroit, the Cass Corridor Movement of the 1970s and 1980s centered on found objects and alternative materials. These methods continue to flourish today. Curator Gary Eleinko has convened twelve artists who utilize these methods to create works that range from the sublime to the chaotic and turbulent. Participating artists include Doug Cannell, Matt Corbin, Christine Hagedorn, Brigette Neal, Scott Northrup, Joan Painter Jones, Tom Pyrzewski, Sharon Que, John Rowland, Ann Smith, Larry Zdeb and the late Chad Champnella.

Pieced Together opens on Friday, June 9, 2017, 6-9 p.m. and will be on view through July 8, 2017. Located at 4719 Woodward Avenue in Detroit (three blocks south of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and one block north of MOCAD), the Detroit Artists Market is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Exhibitions are free of charge.
