an evening with
artist Michael Albert
Saturday May 7th, 5-7 pm
A special one night gallery event featuring original
work and limited edition prints. Michael will also be signing copies
of his book "An Artist's America".
Michael Albert is a New York artist who for over a decade has been
creating his singular form of pop art known as "cerealism".
Utilizing recycled packaging from food items, candy, and other mass
consumables, Albert fashions them into text based works. The Declaration
of Independence, Gettysburg Address, and The Preamble rise through
the detritus of corporate logos and commercial brand advertising.
Pop art and pop tarts merge into a style that has the loose form
of graffitti, with a wry humor towards everyday mass consumption.
Michael Albert will also be giving
a kid's collage art workshop at Red Bank Public Library in the afternoon
