The month of May 2012
Portsmouth Public Library
In conjunction with
Portsmouth Sustainability Day – Saturday, May 12th, 2012
Local artists were asked to submit work created from recycled materials. Their individual responses are shown throughout the library and are meant to challenge us to think about what we throw away every day and to encourage us to see beauty and possibility in everyday objects.
Working in a variety of formats, styles and with materials at hand, artists have taken the ordinary, the overlooked, the “junk” that we produce each and every day and asked us to consider the extra-ordinary that can be created from them.
Some of the artists are using found objects from the natural world and using these shapes and forms in a way that enhances our awareness and understanding of their native beauty.
We hope that you enjoy and are inspired by the show!
