  1. The Art of Bill Schnug

    January 23, 2020 - March 29, 2020 @ Warden's House Gallery

    Bill began making paper collages in his late teens. They are made from pictures and photographs found in various magazines, calendars and books. He arranges them to form another picture that flows into the next and never knows what the outcome will be. This simplistic approach has led him to make many complex pieces over the years and all are diverse. Bill enjoys piecing them together and the time and concentration involved. Gallery hours are Thursday - Saturday, 10 AM - 4 PM and Sunday, Noon - 4 PM
