ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
“Saved from the Landfill: art made from re-purposed materials”
is a juried, thematic group exhibition of visual works aimed to raise awareness about our society’s waste culture. The dilemma of excess packaging and single-use plastics, and our limited capacity to authentically recycle the materials we put into recycle bins, have impacted our environment in ways that we can no longer ignore.
Each artist may submit up to three works for consideration. The majority of each work must be created from materials that have been saved from the landfill. Works may be augmented with paint and/or other art media, and there is leeway for allowing works to be built upon traditional substrates.
To adapt to the pandemic, WACC present a hybrid exhibition that can be experienced virtually, accessible on our website from May 1 – June 30, 2022, and will also feature a selection of works at physical locations in Wilsonville, Oregon.
