We learn so many things from our customers.  Assemblage Artist, Ashley Jones, wrote in to tell us about how she uses super glue products:

“I use Super Glue to create and hold together fun, orginal, and unique assemblage art pieces.  I use 100’s of tubes of The Original Super Glue(R) to hold together my assemblage pieces.”

Assemblage Art is a process involving putting together found objects in a 3D artistic composition.  This collage type artistic form of expression began in the 1930’s, but really came to the forefront in 1961 when, according to Wikipedia, “The Art of Assemblage” exhibition was held at the New York Museum of Modern Art.  The exhibit featured the Assemblage Art work of legendary artists like Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso.

Assemblage Art is an excellent example of reusing, renewing, and recycling to make something brand new!  Terrific story, Ashley!  Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
