Colleen Mirassou will display and discuss her 3-D art called “Assemblage” at the regular Monthly Membership Meeting of Arts & Crafts on Monday, March 6, in Cribari Conference Room, at 1:45 pm.

Colleen's unusual approach to sculptural art includes materials she has found such as a bird's nest, hundreds of acorns stored by squirrels in her chimney piece and other unusual materials.  She has a life-sized torso of Frida Kahlo mounted on chicken wire.

Colleen's roots are deep in San Jose where her family operated Mirassou Winery, but she moved to Los Angeles as an adult. Her Assemblage art work blossomed there as part of group which experimented with new materials. She moved back and now lives in The Villages where she is an active member of Arts & Crafts. She exhibits at the Pacific Art League where she has her studio.  A recognized collage master, she has also taught mask-making for Villagers and plans to do another class in the fall.

The order of business for the March 6 meeting includes short announcements by President Jan Alleman, Colleen's presentation, and, after the presentation, Art in the Park contracts by Diane Finley and her team.

You may also view the entries in our Annual Members Juried Show which will be mounted on two walls.
