Creating art from discarded materials is a crucial and responsible way that artists can reduce environmental harm. This exhibition will be juried & curated by Vernita Nemec, an artist & curator who has been creating exhibitions of Art from Detritus for over a decade and is the Executive Director of Viridian Artists in New York City.
Art From Detritus serves to enrich the dialogue between art and the lives of ordinary people because we all have too much trash. By focusing on recycling or "upcycling" as their method and source for creating, these artists will have made their artmaking serve as both a message and inspiration. This exhibit will reach beyond the art world, serving as a message not only about art, but also about recycling for the good of the environment.
