Ukiah | February 2 – February 29

First Friday Opening at The Corner Gallery in Ukiah

‘Casing the Joint’ is a collaborative assemblage art show featuring pieces made by the artists who participated in the ‘Outta the Box’ assemblage camps in 2023. Spencer Brewer and Esther Siegel of ‘Harmony Gaits’ began these camps out of a desire to share the assemblage art form with others and to create a community of like-minded artists.

Each piece that will be featured in this group show is comprised of some sort of case and uniquely designed from found/discarded objects into a personal expression of each person’s creativity. This will be a fun and engaging exhibition comprised of all the assemblage sculptures made in the camps.

Once a month they host 'Outta the Box' assemblage Art camps to folks of all ages. This show is the first assemblage show displaying pieces from five different assemblage shows. It will be a first time for many artists to participate in an art show, so everyone is excited!

Assemblage is a three-dimensional art form made up of everyday objects that normally don’t live together. These objects are scavenged and collected to help create unique art pieces. The result is both fun and a ‘wow’ experience for the artist and the observer.

These theme-orientated camps will involve using a ‘case’ to create your art piece. A case is a container that is designed to hold or protect something. Examples include boxes, instrument cases, cigar boxes, and anything that holds other objects. Participants will have the opportunity to display their work in a group show at the Corner Gallery in Ukiah early 2024.

Goals:
1. Learn the basics of assemblage
2. Create a finished art piece out of a ‘case’
3. Increase your sense of community
4. ‘Sparkle’ your intuition
5. Have fun!
