Recycled Art Is Showcased At Art From Scrap Gallery
Funded in part by an Arts Enterprise Grant from the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative and Santa Barbara Foundation, No-Waste Earth is a community art show exhibiting ten local artists and their work made from recycled materials.
Guest curator Jami Joelle Nielsen says, “No-Waste Earth is a community recycled art exhibit with a focus on environmental themes. Featuring 10 local artists, this exhibit reveals the personal motivations and passions behind the chosen themes, giving artists and viewers an opportunity to reveal their raw sentiment regarding the destruction of our planet, while encouraging knowledge and action on social and environmental issues.”
Artists were asked to express their passions and concerns about an environmental issue that is personal to them, using materials typically destined for the waste stream. Artists are encouraged to use “trash” for their materials, anything that might be discarded and considered waste by the average person. They were allowed to use paints, adhesives and hardware.
The evening includes food from the Isla Vista Food Co-op, music and Ethical Recycled Jewelry by Fatima Arletta Rahmanovic available for purchase.
No-Waste Earth will be on display at the AFS Gallery from April 19th -May 22nd.Art From Scrap Gallery Hours: Tues., Wed., Thurs., & Fri., 2-5, & Sat. 10-4.
