Commonwheel Artists Co-op is hosting our second “Recycled Art” show from April 20—May 14. We will be hosting 2 gallery receptions from 5-8 pm on Friday, April 20 as well as the First Friday ArtWalk on May 4.
As we did in 2016 we put out an open call to area artists to send us images and information about the art they have created using recycled materials. And, as in 2016, the response was overwhelming. Some of the recycled/upcycled materials submitted include: furniture hardware; bicycle components (gears, spokes, chain, and handlebars); bottle caps; machine shop pieces; computer desk, shower door, and automobile glass; hard drive parts; lace; metal (chains, findings, gears, wire); faucet handles; sweater yarn; vintage leathers; retaining rings; sawmill debris; sheet metal; stuffing from old throw pillows; wine bottle cap; machine shop pieces
This show will feature art by Lynn Beckner, Laura Bornhoft, Cordelia Colt, Thomas Conter, Stephanie Gamez, Duff Glass, Kay Hall, Jo Hart, Frances Huntington, Ron Isaacson, Leah Kenyon, Ron Koehn, Marta Lacombe, Joanne Lucey, Joel Lugo, Shannon McGarraugh, Bryan Miller, Monica Parker, Don Seidel, Darla Slee, Barb St. Clair, Leslie Thompson, Metal Gutz Turner
