An exhibit of the work of artist Hidde Van Duym.
The Craft in America Center will focus on collage this fall with an exhibition of the work of Hidde Van Duym. Largely a self-taught artist, Van Duym worked with lithography, etching and welding before beginning to experiment with three-dimensional watercolor montage in the early 1980s. Van Duym’s work will be on view in an exhibition at the Center from November 8th through January 4th, 2014. On the evening of the opening of his show, Van Duym will give a talk entitled Rules of Seeing: an Overview of Collage to launch a weekend celebration of the properties, process and meaning of collage. The opening reception will be held at the Craft in America Center; it will begin at 6:00 pm, and Van Duym will speak on the topic of collage beginning at 7:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
