I’m delighted to be included in Recycle 2017, presented by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC). Curated by Harriet Taub of Materials for the Arts, this exhibit features 65 pieces that reimagine cast-off, discarded, and repurposed materials.
This piece is part of my new Sea Change series, which transforms fishing tackle, rope, and recycled plastics into textiles and assemblages to consider the parallels between the natural world and the interior world of the mind and how they both may heal from damage wrought by carelessness or greed.
Recycle 2017 is on view every weekend May 13 through June 18, 1-6pm with an opening reception this Saturday.
As I walked around the show yesterday, I was amazed at the brilliantly innovative use of materials and thought-provoking work of my fellow artists. I hope you will come check it out!
