‘remade’ exhibit features two local artists

“remade,” an exhibit of new works by Nevada County artists Elizabeth Dorbad and Libby Hayes, opens at Julie Baker Fine Art gallery with a reception Friday from 6 to 8 p.m.

Dorbad, an assemblage artist who creates nonlinear narrative collages from found objects, models many of her constructions after circus sideshows and theater.

Her “The Theater of the Mind” works, which combine personal experience with political ideology and criticism, are inspired by literature, poetry and performance. The Nevada City artist was given the juror’s award last year at the International Assemblage Art Show in Berlin.

Expressionistic painter Hayes combines materials such as glue, wax, paint, pastel, wood and collage while simultaneously covering up and exposing a multi-layered abstract surface.

Her paintings resemble walls that have been stripped, the layers beneath illuminating subtle images like old wallpaper and revealing a former time.

“remade” runs through Aug. 14. Viewing hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Julie Baker Fine Art is at 120 N. Auburn St., Suite 100 in Grass Valley.
