The Art of Re-Use
Reception: Friday, November 9 > 5-7pm (along with Art on Tap)
Inspired by the theme of this year’s Big Art Party Goes Green, these artists address sustainability and environmental issues by incorporating recycled, upcycled or re-purposed materials into their creative work and practice. This exhibition features 18 works by 13 artists, all from around this region.
Utilizing a broad range of materials—toothpicks, packing materials, found objects, reclaimed steel and wood, synthetic hair, recycled lithographed metal, credit card solicitations, old drawings, electronics—and assemblage techniques, these works of art show that creative re-use can produce surprising results.
