We’re featuring artists who are participating in the Dordt Collage and Assemblage Invitational Exhibition (see previous post). The show is scheduled to open on October 13 in the Campus Center Art Gallery. In this installment we recognize Mary Snyder Behrens of Dysart, Iowa. Mary’s series titled Judges relies on her keen sensitivity with layered materials for impact.

Mary says her work offers many visual emblems that are metaphors of memory, both wonderful and horrible. “They are inextricably tangled up with the experiences of my waking life and become for me, the larger universal paradigm within which we all struggle to coexist.” She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and studied at Mount Mary College (Milwaukee), and at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
