PCC Louis Carlos Bernal Gallery announces the exhibition "CONSTRUCT: Putting It Together," featuring work by Tony Berlant, Ann Keuper, Joy Fox, Betty Harris, Joe Harris, Joan Marum, Clark Trujillo, Judy Miller, Marvin Shaver, Lloyd Schermer, Julie Sasse, Albert Kogel, David Adix, Joe Hatton, Ellen McMahon and Nick Georgiou. A gallery talk is scheduled for Nov. 7 at 2 p.m., followed by a reception from 5–7 p.m.
The gallery is under the direction of David Andres. "CONSTRUCT: Putting it Together" is a group exhibit that examines the way artists use the mediums of assemblage, collage and fabrication. Each of the 16 artists examine the medium in a slightly different way through the use of metal, paper, wood, ceramics, photography, jewelry, fibers and found objects. The artists address their medium using quality craftsmanship with artistic freedom. Andres comments, “From visual arts, to performing arts putting it together is a means to arrange different concepts together in one cohesive piece. The title ‘Putting it Together’ comes from Stephen Sondheim's musical ‘Sunday in the Park with George.’”
Most of the artists in this exhibit are well known throughout Tucson and the Southwest region, and many exhibit nationally and internationally. Of note—Nick Georgiou’s work is in a one-person exhibit in New York; Lloyd Schermer has work in Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia; and Tony Berlant’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the U.S., Switzerland and Edinburgh. Julie Sasse is the chief curator of contemporary and modern art at the Tucson Museum of Art. Betty Harris was a long-standing visual arts faculty at Pima Community
