NEW ART EXHIBIT: ILENE GOLD

NEW ART EXHIBIT: ILENE GOLD

This summer’s art exhibit at the cafe features the work of Ilene Gold. Prints of Ilene’s collages and two originals (can you spot them?) will be on exhibit at the cafe through mid-September.

Ilene creates collages using only National Geographic Magazines. Cutting 1,000s of pieces of paper and assembling them into a new image. The collage idea started by recreating famous paintings made entirely from National Geographic Magazines. As this medium evolved, a new collection started with the recreation of Ilene Gold’s award winning photographs, still using only National Geographic Magazines. Look closely to find a hidden phrase or words. She tries to capture a painterly quality with each collage, as if she is almost painting with paper.

Her photography from the US, Europe, and the Middle East has won her awards, and has been published in national magazines. Prints of her collages have sold in New York, Paris, and Maryland, Juried art shows of this work have been exhibited at: Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition Recycle Art Juried Show 5/2016 & Color Show 7/16, Maryland Federation of Art’s 39th Annual Art on Paper Exhibition 2016, Howard County Center for the Arts 2014, 2015 & 2016.
