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 information on the exhibition, please visit the gallery’s website at www.georgeadamsgallery.com
