Poetic Logic is juried by Shawn Watrous

In the early 20th century, with the advent of mass production of materials and media, artists like Pablo Picasso, George Braque and Kurt Schwitters began developing collage as a way of reappropriating and repurposing materials and images to imbue their works with juxtaposed information that expressed a kind of poetic logic of association.

In our current culture of mass information and media it is not surprising that artists are finding a continued purpose in investigating such relevant processes. This national juried exhibition will showcase artists working in collage, assemblage and other processes of incorporating elements of repurposed materials as a way of expressing our contemporary experience.
