Artists Aylin Green, Ruthann Perry and Sue Dumas are in a three-person show at the J.B.Kline & Son Gallery, 25 Bridge St., Lambertville, Sept. 5 to 27, with an opening reception Sept. 12, 6-9 p.m. in Lambertville.
All three women work with cast-off objects in either assemblage or collage. Each has an appreciation for the odd, the offbeat and the curious detritus of life.
Aylin Green’s art springs from the tables of flea markets, the sewing boxes of fashionable women and the button jars of bygone days. In her mixed media paintings she approaches her subjects like a cultural observer or artistic ethnographer.
Ruthann Perry began as a prop builder working in theater, TV and film, taught art and now creates her own work using found objects, including factory molds and architectural detail. Old, worn wood is her favorite “ingredient.”
Sue Dumas has lived in Lambertville for almost 25 years. Twenty years ago, Sue and her husband started Manon Restaurant of Lambertville. In the past, she taught art classes to children and is now a special education teacher.
