“Pieced Together: Collage by Lance Letscher, Mark Lewis and Mary McCleary” open until Sept. 18th

Collage is the art of combining different 2-D elements to make something brand new, and the artists featured in this exhibition are masters. The backgrounds and perspectives of Lance Letscher (Austin), Mary McCleary (Nacogdoches), and Mark Lewis (Tulsa, Okla.) are as varied as their work: Lance recycles images from newspapers, magazines, and catalogs to communicate brand new ideas; Mary makes complicated narratives in dazzling colors with buttons, trinkets, and brightly dyed fabrics; and Mark shares his experiences of working on the sidewalks of his native city in intricate paper images in shades of white, black, and gray. Here are some of the collages you will see.
