Sean Macmillan of Martha Gault Art Gallery, Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania writes:
Most artists are by nature frugal individuals. More often than not we accumulate stockpiles of materials or seek out objects by visiting garage sales, scrap yards, junk stores etc. We all utilize these materials in vastly different ways. I am looking for your interpretation of found object or found material. Works ranging from high manipulation of salvaged materials to “Traditional” Found Object Assemblage and Collage are welcome.
