Assemblages by Gerald Mead, A 20-Year Survey

Catt. Co. Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibit spanning a 20-year period of Gerald Mead’s work to be held at JCC Center Gallery in Olean beginning April 8 through May 19. Mead is an award winning artist who creates small scale, photographic and found material collages and assemblages.  Mead explains, “I’ve long been intrigued by discarded objects and found images, regarding them as potent and poetic cultural artifacts. The idea of appropriating objects, detritus and illustrative material and giving them new meaning through a process of recombination has historic precedents in the genres of collage and assemblage, however this strategy takes on new relevance in today’s society – a “remix” culture characterized by recycling, sampling, mixing and recontexualizing.”
