Ruby Re-Usable and Jane Junkton attended the opening of this show back in January, but there is still time to view the more than 160 paintings, sculpture, photography, mixed-media, video, and 3-dimensional installations by more than 50 Pacific Northwest artists of African descent in the ONYX Fine Arts Truth B Told art exhibit at the King Street Station gallery in Seattle — show runs until until February 18, 2017.

There isn’t a whole lot of art from recycled materials in the exhibit, but we did get to see our friend and Recycle Art Goddess Marita Dingus‘ latest piece, Gathering the Spirits, an impressive trio of figures made mostly out of repurposed metal scraps that are embellished with various plastic pieces (including black plastic mesh scraps left over from our ill-fated McClure Middle School recycled art installation — more info about that HERE).  Marita first created a solitary figure similar to this trio for the Bellevue Art Museum’s 4th Biennial, Metalmorphosis, which focused on the medium of metal; we look forward to see more of these figures.  More info about Marita Dingus and Truth B Told exhibit HERE and HERE and HERE
