Broken doll parts, shells, old buttons and spools, oh my!
We’ve all heard the saying. “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Well, what the average person would see as disconnected artifacts and knick-knacks, assemblage artist, Letitia Kenemer, views as a sea of artistic treasures with endless possibility to create stunningly unique artwork.
Letitia is always searching for and collecting small objects that have potential—a process that she feels is just as important to her as the final piece. Her artwork reinterprets these objects that others have discarded or forgotten, and gives them different meaning and new appreciation. She constantly moves around and rearranges the objects until she finally feels that they are in the right place.
When Letitia is not creating her signature assemblage pieces, she is working away at the Workspace in the Iowa State Memorial Union as the Workspace coordinator.
Be sure to pay Letitia and the other artists a visit during the Ames Area Studio Tour Oct. 10 (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) and Oct. 11 (noon – 4 p.m).
