New Hampshire Antique Co-op is pleased to

Nevelson, as well as contemporary artists Roz Park, Chris Myott, Jan

Collage and assemblage art has its roots in surrealism, borrowing from
that movement the concept of unexpected juxtaposition. Artist Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) was one
of the earliest artists to practice this art form. He used found
objects, relics and trinkets from his everyday life to create shadow
boxes filled with assembled objects. These creations evoke far more
than the modest contents used.
Varujan Boghosian, a
noted NH-based collage & assemblage artist, draws inspiration for
his art from many sources such as literature, art, music and history.
His works often reflect his affinity for myth and symbolism, most often
seen in his use of swans and serpents. Boghosian has held a number of
teaching positions including Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, where he
continues to maintain his studio. Boghosian’s artwork is widely
acclaimed and can be viewed in museums across the country: The
Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art
Institute of Chicago, Currier Museum, Whitney and Philadelphia Museum
Roz Park, known for her
abstract paintings and collage/assemblage pieces, utilizes oil paint,
watercolors, photography, fibers and natural objects to create
enigmatic pieces. Her works have been exhibited at Boston Center for
the Arts’ Mills Gallery in Boston, as well as in galleries
throughout New Hampshire, recently winning an award at the 2017
Biennial at the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery.
Invigorate your winter-weary spirits with a visit to Transcending the
Ordinary: Abstract, Assemblage & Collage and its unexpected
artwork. Enjoy bold paintings, collage and other modern works forged
from paper, paint, wood and metal. Immerse yourself in the unbounded,
wildly creative and abstract visions of the modern artists included in
the Ordinary: Abstract, Assemblage & Collage is on view in
the Tower Gallery at New Hampshire Antique Co-op from March 17 through
June 30, 2018. An opening reception was held March 17 from 1-3pm in the
Upstairs Gallery at NHAC.
