Art goes green at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County's newest exhibit "Re-purposed/Re-seen." The council reached out to local artists to create art with recycled objects for the show.
Different techniques such as collage, painting and assembling various materials were used.
"In continuing with the Cultural Council's ongoing efforts to promote local artists, we chose participants who regularly re-purpose in their art," says council president Rena Blades.
Featured artists are Dennis Aufiery, Inna Babaeva, Steve Blackwood, Nicole Galluccio, Bertrand Jubert, Sandra Kuba, Deborah Meisel and Rose Shaw.
An additional component of the show will be a collaboration between the Cultural Council and the Resource Depot, which supports local educators and their students through creatively re-using materials. The show will highlight art created by discarded VHS tapes from Resource Depot.
The show opens Friday at the Cultural Council with a preview party Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For the preview party, admission is free for members, $10 for non-members and includes admission to the trunk show featuring Urban Junk and Marta Cruz. To RSVP, call 561-472-3341 or email Debbie Calabria at email@example.com
