"Trashformations": Trash to Treasures
Artists are often on the cutting edge and see things a bit differently than others. For instance there is now a very large movement using items we discard on a daily basis to create something entirely different and novel - contemporary art. This is the practice of "upcycling", transforming everyday trash into treasure troves of creativity. There have been hotels and places of worship made of garbage, as well as furniture and vehicles. We are looking for small-scale work for this show-- an art piece worthy of gift-giving for the holiday season exhibiting a sophisticated level of craftsmanship only. Make a mosaic or other mixed media work and exhibit your creativity. Compositions can be made from recycled paper or plastic bags, rubber bands, dried paint chips, recycled bottles, cans, bike parts. We ask that you do not submit perishable items like food as art.  

 *Submission Due Date: Friday October 7, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: Friday October 14, 2011
Exhibit Dates: November 30-December 31, 2011
Artist Reception: Friday, December 2, 6-8pm
