Uncontained: Juried Exhibit

Uncontained: Juried Exhibit

Explore what it means to repurpose, reclaim, and redefine recycled materials in this unconventional exhibition that diverges 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.

Exhibits: July 5 – 27, 2019
Opening reception: Friday, July 5 from 6 – 8 p.m. This event is free and open to the public and features light refreshments.

About the Juror: Dale only uses discarded materials that are no longer able to serve their original purpose. For this reason, he prefers the term reinvented rather than recycled. By careful selection and placement, discarded objects enter into dialogues expressing the artist’s views that range from the philosophical to the whimsical. Each assemblage is as unique as the material used. His artwork offers a new perspective on the importance of everyday life. In his search for the significant hidden within the insignificant, Dale reveals an inner beauty of the mundane. His art is a metaphoric vehicle for the overlooked, abandoned, and forgotten elements within today’s society.
