Collages, Assemblages, and Mixed Media

Posted May 30, 2012, at 1:19 p.m.

Joanne Halpin will be the next featured artist at the Henry D. Moore Library in Steuben. Her show will run from June 2nd until June 30th and there will be an opening reception on Monday, June 4th from 5:30-7:30pm. Joanne received her art education at the University of North Florida, majoring in painting. The natural beauty and peacefulness of Washington County inspire and nurture her. Subject matter comes from nature, dreams, memories, and a preoccupation with boats – sailboats in particular. Collages (the art of making pictures by sticking cloth, pieces of paper, photographs, and other objects onto a surface) are made with papers of all kinds including original painted papers (with potato printing designs), magazine clippings, maps and nautical charts. Assemblages (three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions of found objects) include objects found along the shore and other places. Halpin has called Milbridge her home since 1996. For more information about this show or other events at the library, visit or call the library at 546-7301.
