Big thanks to everyone who participated, volunteered or attended the opening party last Thursday night. It was a beautiful evening with beautiful people all around. The work of the SCRAP ART show is now hanging with glory in the Reclaimed Room gallery and at Public Glass. It will be on display through July 26th. Come by anytime during business hours and peruse the offerings. Check in with the staff if you want to make a purchase-we had a few sales on opening night already-congratulations to the artists whose work SOLD!
This show was juried by Jenny Morningstar of SCRAP, Deborah Monk of Recology, Nate Watson of Public Glass and Soumyaa Behrens of Reclaimed Room. All of the art was fantastic but there were some standouts that we would like to recognize. Jury Prizes were awarded to three artists whose work went beyond the call of duty and demonstrated a mastery of their craft along with a unique relationship with the materials used.
HUGE Congratulations to our JURY PRIZE Winners!! Winners receive gift certificates to SCRAP, Building REsources, and Public Glass in the amounts of $100/$75/$50.
And the WINNERS are….
