Collage “Bird Mask” by J. Desmond- recycled mags & other papers

What discarded items are lurking around your house waiting to be transformed into art? By brainstorming, considering possibilities, anything can become a medium for creative expression.

There’s a freedom in it. Recycling and repurposing bypasses the need for purchasing specialized materials: canvas, paint, special paper, and such. Plus it alleviates the oft seen, beginner’s intimidation when confronted with an array of expensive art stuff.

You just plunge in—imagine, conceive, pile up, cut, tear, organize, design, glue, hammer, and lose yourself in the process. Sometimes it’s just about the process, about voicing your expression, and sometimes you will come up with a thing worth keeping.

Starting Wednesday evening, March 17through March 19, 2010, there’s an art exhibit featuring such recycled art at the Odd Fellows Hall,50 Tobias St, Kernville, California.It will highlight a display by local students answering the theme ofHow Do You Green at Home, Work, or School?

This is part of the 2010 Living Green Kern River Valley Festivalto be held March 17 thru 21, 2010 in California.
