Spotlight On: Olga Stepanek
July 31 – November 4, 2018
Olga Stepanek, a late-in-life artist with no formal artistic education, found inspiration in places she visited and the books she read. An experimental artist, she utilized objects deemed worthless and without any further use. In her life time, Stepanek created over 1,500 metal collages, and several fabric pieces, and 275 metal cubes. Because she wanted art to be affordable for everyone, she priced her works inexpensively, which was possible in her case since she paid nearly nothing for the materials she incorporated in her pieces.
