Art at APL Exhibition
Pine Hills Branch, 517 Western Ave., Albany, NY 12208

Pieced Together, curated by Amy Griffin, showcases artists who transform cut paper and other discarded materials into new compositions. Whether through model making or collage, these artists find inspiration in scrap paper, fabric remnants, old maps, photos, or magazines. For some, the allure of a commonplace material like cardboard is the freedom inherent in it—it isn’t precious or perceived as valuable, so anything goes. For others, it’s the history of the material—all the other stories it has told and can yet tell. Often it’s simply the economy of re-using scraps. Ultimately, the satisfaction comes from piecing it all together into something new.

Art at APL is funded in part by the Friends & Foundation of Albany Public Library.
