Art reception for collage and assemblage exhibition on Nov. 18

November 9, 2010

On Thursday, November 18, David Robert Kamm, from Luther College, will be on campus as a visiting artist and will be speaking to several art classes. The department of art and design will host a reception for the Collage and Assemblage Exhibition from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Kamm, one of the artists in the show, will be in the gallery to talk about his work. All are invited and refreshments will be available.

Kamm is trained as a printmaker and his work reflects aesthetic concerns such as image transfer, serial imagery, and multiple image manipulations that leave a visual record of the creative process. His "stick assemblages" are intimate pieces made from his own prints, cut into pieces, and recombined with wooden sticks to make a new artwork. Also being displayed will be selected works from a series of text-based collages titled "Transformations".

Kamm earned his MA and MFA in printmaking from the University of Iowa, and he is currently an Assistant Professor of Art and the Gallery Coordinator at Luther College. His work is included in collections such as The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction in Cuernavaca; the Vatican Collection of Modern Art; the Print Consortium of Kansas City, and the Popular Culture Library at Bowling Green State University.
