The sixth annual 2007 RE Art Recycled Art Exhibition will take place Oct. 5-27 in three locations in Bellingham, Wash. The Allied Arts of Whatcom County Gallery will feature the work of professional and semi-professional artists. The RE Store gallery will focus on art submitted from the young people. And the W.W.U. Viking Gallery will show pieces from higher education students (Western Washington University, Whatcom Community College, Bellingham Technical College and Skagit Community College) with an emphasis on both art and industrial design. There’s room for fashion, too! A Haute Trash Fashion Show runway performance will take place Oct. 20.
According to the site, “Submitted work may be reasonably considered â€œrecycled artâ€ if it is entirely, or primarily, composed of material(s) that would have otherwise been disposed into the waste streams. This can also include fashion apparel items and accessories, as well as functional items that fall into the realm of industrial design.” Deadline for submission is Sept. 21.
See RE Store’s website for details on the show as well as their unique stores.
(Shown is Robert Zverina’s “1,000 Flattened Can Spiral” from a previous RE Art show.)
