Refuse reworked

Work by University at Buffalo alumna Jane Sangerman will be the focus of a new exhibition opening at 5 p.m. Saturday in the university's Anderson Gallery at 1 Martha Jackson Place just off Kenmore Avenue. Sangerman's collage work, according to a gallery release, is the result of a process of "excavation" in which the artist layers, scrapes and sands various materials to create a complex final product. In Sangerman's approach, "objects found on the streets of New York City are granted new life and enrich the tapestry of the plane as they become one, bound with her cool color palette of aquas, greens and turquoises."

On July 27, two days before the exhibition closes, Sangerman -- who often works with art students and teachers in her adopted home of New York City -- will host an "Art Teachers Seminar Day" workshop and guide a tour of the exhibition. Pre-registration is required, with more information at 829-3754 or
