Today starting at 6 p.m. at Translations Gallery, 855 Inca Street, Assemblage and Recyclates opens with the dream of giving trash a second chance. It brings back the whole assemblage idea that Picasso and Duchamp came up with, says Kate Merkel, manager of Translations. Its not necessarily a new idea; its just kind of revamped. I wanted to take the ideas of recycling in our culture and pull in these ideas from the past. I wanted to show people that art can be made from non-traditional material and still be fine art.
Admission is free. For more information, call 303-629-0713 or go to www.translationsgallery.com.
