Earth Day Art Shows: The Seattle ReStore
The Seattle ReStore’s 7th Annual Recycled Art and Fashion Show opens on Saturday, April 11 at Blowing Sands Gallery during the Ballard Arts Walk, 6pm – 9pm. Since Ruby Re-Usable had the honor to once again be one of the jurors for this show, we will offer you a sneak peek of some of these resourceful artists’ work:
Cheri Kopp used colorful plastic lids for Faded Glory; Brett Carlson utilized cookie tins for his Earth Day flag
Seattle fiber artist Ann Maki made Every Scrap Matters out of leftover bits of fabric
Northwest Designer Craftsman member Patti Shaw found plastic toys in a free box for Funnybones
and one of our favorite crazy stencil and spray paint artists Bjorn Hartman, alias Legion aka Raw Garbage, created The Skull Channel/ You Are What You See with salvaged wood from the Seattle ReStore; not sure what the story is about the old tv, but it is part of this graffiti-covered video installation which we look forward to viewing in person
hope to see you at the opening, be sure to say hi, love, etc Ruby
these are very creative and inspiring, shame its too far away for me to get to
Do you know Cheri Kopp? I would love to be saving all our plastic tops and lids for her. Googled Brett Carlson but didn’t see any images of his. You know me, Ruby, I want to know who all the tin artist are, in case I do a book some day.
I have met Cheri (this is the third year that she has participated in the ReStore Recycled Art Show), but not Brett, even though we were in the ReArt show in Tacoma together, I could not find any info on him, either, will get back to you on both!
Ruby, here is my work email address and home is Brobertscarlson@gmail.com
I thought the entire show in Seattle was very very creative and inspiring.
