One week ago today, Friday, April 19th, the local Art of Recycling show opened at the Cranberry Municipal Center in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. A lack of funds cancelled the opening night artists’ reception, but that didn’t keep me from checking out the exhibit.
The Art of Recycling show is sponsored by the Associated Artists of Butler County in conjunction with the Cranberry Township Community Chest and UPMC Passavant. Its purpose is to promote artwork constructed from recyclable materials, in conjunction with Earth Day. The exhibit runs through May 11th.
Some of you might recall that I entered my Trash Bubbles Heart the Earth mobile in this show. You can find the original post here: https://trashbubblesandlifeslittlebits.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/trash-bubbles-heart-the-earth/
My friend, Jill Eudaly of Recycled Daze (http://www.jeudaly.blogspot.com/) created this Wetlands piece which garnered a cash award.
These were some of the other entries:
Regrettably, I did not think to get the artist information for the pieces in the slide show. Some of them had taken awards for merit, others were pieces I enjoyed in some way. I hope you enjoyed them as well.
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
