Vintage Collage Exhibit at MorYork Gallery

Saturday, June 8th @ 7:00 pm - Saturday, June 15th @ 7:00 pm

Free

Opening on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 7pm to 10 pm and Exhibit through Saturday, June 15, 2019
Los Angeles-based collage and assemblage artist Frank Whipple has been creating unique and exquisite hand-cut collages from vintage books, ephemera, cabinet card portrait photos, found metal and antique textiles. Whipple began his appreciation for vintage books and ephemera at the age of 7 while hunting through the flea markets with his grandmother in Rome, Italy. His work reflects his influences of science fiction art and literature of the 1950s and 60s, vintage comic books, as well as black and white film and photography of the era, with an interest in Surrealism and Dada dating to the 1930s and beyond.

Please join us at opening reception and exhibit at the MorYork Gallery (seldom open to the public) which is like walking into a full-scale cabinet of curiosity, with Whipple’s intricate collages as a fine complement to this uniquely LA setting.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, June 8 from 7pm to 10pm during NELAart Gallery Night/Walk
EXHIBIT HOURS: Sunday, June 9 and Wednesday-Saturday, June 12-June 15 from 11am to 4pm each day
