Mark Serrianne

Forgotten and Found:
Recovered Objects and the Stories They Tell

On View: November 2 - December 20, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 2, 4-7 PM
Artists Talk: Friday, November 8, 11 AM

For his first solo exhibition at Arts on Douglas, Mark Serrianne will be presenting a body of new work. After a fulfilling career in advertising and communications, Serrianne now dedicates his time to sharing personal narratives through the medium of assemblage art.  He notes, “A career in advertising, love for great design, primitive antiques and unusual found objects have all converged to form my creation of assemblages.” At the center of these creations lies Serrianne’s love of storytelling.  In his exhibition statement, he elaborates: “I’ve always believed a story well-told is an art form and the work I do is all about storytelling-- bringing together objects and curiosities that create a little magic or carry a message that strikes a meaningful chord. I search for themes that connect, disrupt or evoke whimsy.”
