Sculpture Garden

Visit our New Sculpture Garden.  The grounds, gardens, and orchard provide tranquil settings for large-scale outdoor sculpture produced by some of Arizona’s premier sculptors.  The works are on loan by the artists and a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of their pieces benefit the Shemer Art Center.


LAYERS: Collage & Assembly

December 4, 2014 – January 1, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 4 7-9pm



About the Exhibit

The origins of collage date back to the invention of paper, but collage as an art form surged in the twentieth century. We seek artists who incorporate layering and assemblage techniques in their process. The end result may be collage, photomontage or decoupage, and be incorporated in collage with wood, paper or other materials.
