There will be a reception for the artists from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Community Room July 12.
Frigon uses the vivid colors, patterns and textures of magazine and calendar artwork to substitute for pigment and brush strokes in her collages. She uses personal photos taken at various times and locations as her inspiration. The images she creates with only paper, scissors and glue can appear hauntingly real from a distance, and only up close can one see the individual pieces that make up the larger piece.
Traditionally she has been a closet artist, preferring to use her art to document and decorate her daily life, but in 2012, she began exhibiting modestly by joining ART Station in Stone Mountain and entering her pieces in member juried shows. She won Best of Show at the 2013 Decatur Fine Arts Exhibition, and one of her collages was purchased by the city of Decatur.
