Art show highlights recycled materials

Posted

After being inspired by artists in New Orleans, South Westminster Arts Group chair Debbie Teter had the idea for a new art show at the Rodeo Market Gallery.

The show is called RE, and focuses on art created from reusing, recycling, reinventing, restyling, recreating and repurposing materials.

“Went I visited New Orleans in October, I saw so many artists working with recycled goods and making beautiful things,” Teter said. “It just really inspired me and I wanted to have something like that here.”

The RE show is a juried show featuring art made from salvaged and scavenged materials. Artists can use any type of art medium, including two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces, fashion, accessories, jewelry, mechanical, electrical and multimedia works. Teter said all entries must be smaller than 8 feet, by 10 feet and all pieces must be framed or ready to be hung before submission. For sculptures, tables will be available for use of display.

“We have really made an effort to reach out to different artists,” she said. “Our members are really excited about it, but we also want other artists outside of SWAG to get involved and get excited.”

The opening of the show is April 13, during the Second Saturday Art Walk, at Rodeo Market Gallery, 3915 W. 73rd Ave. in Westminster. The gallery will be open from 1-6 p.m. for the public to check out the pieces and wine and refreshments will be served. The show will run until May 5 and pieces are available for purchase.
