I received wonderful news Friday. My piece, Angst Unleashed, was juried into a NYC art show, Art From Detritus. The show, curated by Vernita Nemec, will be on display from November 16th until December 4th at the Viridian Artists Gallery. The opening is Saturday, November 20th, from 4-7 pm. An excerpt from the press release, below, describes this interesting exhibit. I’m thrilled to be a part of this exhibit and would love to see you there!
Chelsea: Viridian Artists is pleased to present “Art from Detritus: Recycling with Imagination”. Curated by Vernita Nemec, the exhibition opens November 16 and extends through December 4, 2010 with the art of more than 50 artists. There will be an artist’s reception Saturday November 20, 4-7PM.
2010 marks the 16th Anniversary of “Art from Detritus: Recycling with Imagination” an exhibit filled with the most impressive, innovative and inspiring art made from trash. Unlike many exhibitions about recycling, the art in this exhibit is actually made from fragments of discarded and found materials that have been creatively transformed. Not only do these artists recycle, but they are also upcycling (a process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value) by using trash as their medium of choice for their artmaking.
