Uncontained: Juried Exhibit

Uncontained: Juried Exhibit

Explore what it means to repurpose, reclaim, and redefine recycled materials in this unconventional exhibition that converges creativity and sustainability. Uncontained challenges artists to turn trash into treasure by presenting art made entirely of recycled and found materials, and encourages viewers to reimagine the potential of discarded products. Engage in an interactive recycled art project anytime during the exhibition and redefine for yourself what it means to reduce, reuse, and recycle artfully!

All entries must be submitted online no later than Friday, June 14.

Juried by Dale Weber.

Opening reception: Friday, July 12 from 5 – 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public and features light refreshments.
Conversational walk and talk with juror and artists: Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. during the Alliance GreenMarket

About the Juror: Starting his artistic journey in the early 1970’s, Dale Weber, emerged as a young painter.  He explored the many paths of artistic expression from oil to acrylic to pastel.  This inevitably led to mixed media collage and finally to found object assemblage. He has traveled this avenue for over twelve years recycling a variety of discarded materials. He has now reached the stage in his journey where he considers himself “a happy hobo with no promises to keep.” Dale Weber is a veteran of both solo, group and invitational exhibits and a recipient of several awards.
