“Medley: A Collage Group Exhibition,” physically embodies how artists embrace the universe’s entropic decline, capturing the world’s chaos and melding it into a medley of meaning.

Chicago Weekly, Amelia Dmowska

It was the wide breadth of interpretation that made this show linger in my head. As I left the gallery it began to snow on that April night, but I didn’t care. I didn’t care about the ugly side of collage that mucked up my search engine, either, the wedding boards and baby-shower planning, because all of the images and thoughts in my head were fresh and unexpected.

New City, Todd Renier

This will be the Chicago Urban Art Society’s second installment of the inaugural group show “Medley” that exhibited on May 11, 2012. “Medley” series presents artists that work within the genre of collage or, assemblage. Contrary to the general publics knowledge of this medium as simply affixing papers, ephermera, or objects to a two dimensional surface, the Curator selected a grouping of national and international artists practicing collage-work in both two and three dimensional techniques. 

Looking beyond the expected and pushing constructing boundaries within the digital, analog and sculptural collage culture, “Medley” encourages viewers to consider, “What you think of collage can always change.”.
