Charles Marsh: Working in Secret: Assemblage and Collage, 1990 - 2000 Sep 7 - Oct 27, 2012
Charles Marsh Birdman
Charles Marsh Klansman
Charles Marsh Masked Self-portrait
Concurrent with the Barsness exhibition is a show of 8 assemblages and collages by
CHARLES MARSH. This is Marsh’s third exhibition at the gallery and the first to
include his assemblages as well as a rare self-portrait.
Created during the decade before Marsh’s premature death at 52 in 2000, the works in
the exhibition seem pointedly autobiographical and present a darker side to his art.
For example, the small cloth doll punctured by hypodermic needles is a reference to
his struggle with heroin addiction, while the photo-collage featuring a Klansman
encircled by a rubber hose references his unhappy childhood in Greenville, SC.
The exhibitions of works by Marsh are on view through October 27th.
Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10AM to 6PM. For images and more
