FOUND OBJECTS FIND A HOME IN DISCARDED AND REDISCOVERED
July 18 – Sept. 5, 2020 | Opens July 18, 5 p.m.
See objects in their second lives as art in Discarded and Rediscovered juried by artist Gwen Waight of Peninsula. For this exhibition, artists are challenged to repurpose, reclaim, and rediscover discarded materials through the production of strong and compelling artwork.
As a consumerist society that is constantly disposing and discarding, what does it mean to rediscover and repurpose? This may be finding value in something that another person has deemed worthless, or reusing an object because of an intrinsic interest one might have in it; maybe it’s manipulating a found-object to communicate an idea that it was never intended to communicate. Interpretations of this rediscovery may include assemblages, collages, the use of a nontraditional foundation for a painting, and many more. For this exhibition, artists are challenged to repurpose, reclaim, and rediscover discarded materials through the production of strong and compelling artwork.
