“Metamorphosis” features repurposed mixed media artwork by artist Paige Bridges. Paige uses photography and design as a starting point for her artwork and builds on them to create collages utilizing a mixture of magazine clippings, found objects and other items collected since childhood.
“My work is a layered expression of my love for the arts,” says Paige. She uses repurposed materials in her collages to “find the hidden potential in these items, transforming them into something more pleasing and showing that there is always more to things than meets the eye.”
In her youth, Paige was surrounded by artists who allowed her to experience and appreciate all mediums of art. In the ‘70s she fell in love with printmaking while attending Barnsdall Art Center in Los Angeles. She continued her education with the art program at Los Angeles Valley College and eventually majored in art at Cal State Long Beach with an emphases on printmaking.
The exhibit will be available for viewing during all events at The MAIN, as well as Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. An art reception will take place on Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The community is invited to view Bridges’ artwork, enjoy light refreshments and meet the artist.
