"discARTed" Recycled Art Exhibition
When: January 26 through March 31, 2013 – Open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: The West Woods Nature Center 9465 Kinsman Rd. (Rt 87) Russell
Twp, OH 44072
The discARTed show is a challenge to 'think outside the trash can’,
utilizing cast-off materials in the creation of decorative and functional
artwork. Works created from recycled materials are carriers of memory,
containing vestiges of their former function into the new art pieces. The
possibilities for raw materials are endless, as is the potential for
artwork being created. Visitors are drawn to the mystery of what has been
created and are delighted with the unique artwork they will find.
