Charlotte ARTery Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Benefit Exhibit of Recycled Materials

The Charlotte ARTery Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present Tossed & Found, on view from Sept. 6 - 21, 2013. A reception will be held on Sept. 6, from 6-9pm. Limited hours are offered on Saturdays from noon-5pm on Sept. 7, 14, & 21.

This juried show of art and functional design created from reclaimed, salvaged and scrounged materials will benefit the Assistance League of Charlotte-(ALC). Part of Charlotte Artery’s mission is to foster the visibility of local and regional artists. One of the ways we do this, is by joining forces with groups where our art can raise awareness for a cause.

The Assistance League of Charlotte is a nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through community-based philanthropic programs. In the spirit of recycling, Charlotte ARTery will be collecting donations for the ALC throughout the month of September.

Aside from benefiting the Assistance League of Charlotte, the purpose of this show is to encourage the reuse of a variety of materials in new, different and creative forms. Artists are only limited by their imagination and their ability to find recycled materials and turn them into art using any of the following disciplines: painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, fiber, glass, ceramics, wood, photography, metal and mixed media.

By featuring art made by recycling we hope to piggy-back on other global efforts to bring awareness of the environment and the by-products of consumer habits. We can help make a difference even if we just spark some individual rethinking on how to consume and repurpose to improve individual carbon footprints.

A People’s Choice Award with a cash prize will be voted for by the public during the opening night reception.

This show will feature works of 29 artists in a wide variety of price ranges. The artists participating in this event are: Alan Hoyle, Bev Nagy, Bryan Petersen, Caroline C. Brown, Christina Welsh, Cindi Spillman, Diane Pike, Doris Rice, Elyse Frederick, Flavia Lovatelli, Glenn Pickersgill, Jeanine Ordoyne, Jen Walls, Julie Benda, Kayla Reishe, Laura McRae-Hitchcock, Lori Love Penland, Marcee Musgrove, Mark Doepker, Phyllis J. Howard, Raine Middleton, Rachel Ohls, Rosalia Weiner, Shelley Pawlyk, Susan Nutall, Teresa Hollmeyer, Theron Ross, Tina Alberni and Wan Marsh.
