Menlo Art League is featuring the expertise of Marianne Lettieri at its April 9 workshop-style, morning meeting. Marianne will be exploring with us the use of artifacts and memorabilia to create an assemblage. You will learn a different way to stimulate your creativity by assembling them into a unique piece of art know variously as assemblage, collage and arte povera (palindrome art), even trash art.
Growing up in Florida on Cape Canaveral, Marianne Lettieri, our April artist, spent hours exploring the estuaries and palmetto plants while accompanied by the rumble of rocket launches.
She earned her BFA at the University of Florida with majors in drawing and print making. Marianne explores the ephermeral nature of existence by creating art with cultural detritus and everyday objects.
Recent exhibitions include "Poetics of Disposability" at the Triton Museum 2012, "Changing Context" at Azusa Pacific University 2011, and "Dark Inheritance" at Palo Verdes Art Center 2010. Her artwork is in the collections of Oracle Corporation, San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, International Museum of Collage Assemblage and Costruction, and is featured in the books: Art Making, Collections and Obsessions by Lynne Perrella and Under the Influence by Cecil Touchon.
