Preview of Re•Place: Collages by Maura McGurk at Majestic ARTS Presents

If you’ve seen a postcard invitation for my art exhibition next month at Majestic ARTS Presents, you know that I wanted to do something special for my Seattle debut.

The exhibition features my latest body of work–digital collages–along with other mixed media paintings and works on paper. Because the work itself contains everything from digital “pieces” of various photographs, to ash from Mt. Etna, I decided to preview some of these disparate elements in the invitations and make each one a one-of-a-kind collage in its own right. Some of the materials in these little collages include Thai banana paper, a New York City public schoolteacher’s grading book from the 1930s, and moving boxes.

And what better way to clean up those moving boxes than to cut them up and put them in artwork?!

I’m thrilled to be here in Seattle and to have a solo show at Majestic ARTS Presents. Hope to see you at the opening on July 12, 6-9 PM!

For more information, and to RSVP, check out the digital invite. To see a one-of-a-kind collage invite, you’ll have to get on my mailing list, or ask me in person!
