Happy Earth Day!
Happy Earth Day from Olympia Dumpster Divers!
We love holidays, we really do. So we really do like the idea of an Earth Day holiday and think that banks should close and kids should get off from school and everyone should make a concerted effort to go green and drink green drinks and do volunteer work and feel all righteous and/or guilty, but then the next thing you know, Hallmark will be making cards and all of the stores will be pushing you to buy more stuff for Earth Day (what, it’s already happening? the commercialization of Earth Day? what is this world coming to?!).
Anyway, we also like the way that Earth Day has been expanding from one day, to a week, to the whole month of April … now we have to try to make every day Earth Day.
Ruby Re-Usable is doing her part by making art, not waste and resolving to responsibly re-use the materials she has already hoarded collected before accumulating more. So what are you doing?
… thought about holidays some more, and realized the reasons I love holidays are special food, and presents. SO is there any Earth Day food? And where are my presents??
We should all be locavores on Earth Day – eating food produced close to home! As for presents, perhaps we can all exchange little art treasures we’ve made from trash – not all that creative a thought – oh well!
I don’t think I ever complimented Ruby and her co-jurors on the fabulous Seattle ReStore show. I am honored to be included in such creative company. Jason, Sebastian, Blowing Sands Gallery and the lady who hung the show did an amazing job. I saw you across the room at the opening soire but was deep in conversation with Brett and you had left by the tme I went looking for you.
Can you give Jenny F my email address? Generally speaking, all of my art is from my own trash and I’m more than a little cautious about accepting from others but those pesky caps and lids get under my skin.
Happy creating, Cheri
thanks Cheri, and I will pass your info on to Jenny F, congrats again on being part of this and other recycled art shows, I enjoy seeing your work!
