NEWBURYPORT, Mass. - Sept. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- Local artist Sandra Turner's colorful collages are on display during September and October at Carry Out Cafe & Catering at 155 State Street in Newburyport. "Creating Art from Torn Paper" features layers of paper on stretched canvas to make scenes from nature and the region. The public is invited to an Artist Reception on Friday, October 4, 2019, from 5-7 p.m. at the cafe. The event is free and refreshments will be served.

"In the fall of 2018, I tried my hand at collage. I call it painting with paper as I didn't cut out images and lay them out on a background, rather tore swaths of color from magazines and use them much in the same way as you would but a brushstroke on a canvas," Turner explained. "I worked intuitively which resulted in many layers of paper as I was continually adjusting color combinations."

This approach has forced a looser and more intuitive approach to Turner's art. Overlapping colors and shapes has allowed for nuances to take place by leaving just enough of the underlay to achieve a line or curve where needed. "Collage has added a whole new dimension to the way in which I express myself as an artist," she added.

Turner, whose interest in art began as a child, graduated with honors from the New England School of Art in Boston, before enjoying a lengthy career as a graphic designer. She left the corporate world to follow her passion in 2015. Since then, she has been a full-time artist, mastering a mix of media – sketching, watercolors, acrylic and mixed media, clay relief, and collage.
