Artist Profile videos for Alternative Cosmos!

Opening Reception Feb 6th, 6-8pm!!

Lady Saphire reinvents the world through works made from melted plastics, resins and trash remnants that are unusually striking and oddly familiar.

Get to know her before the show by checking out her artist profile video above!

Solis invites us into the graphic universe of Wildwood, where characters made from reclaimed materials spring to life and provoke questions of togetherness, tolerance and utopian ideals.

Get to know him before the show by checking out his artist profile video above!


Alternative Cosmos at the Reclaimed Room features work by artists Solis and Lady Saphire.  Both artists, in their own ways, create new spaces of engagement through their individual art works and compliment one another quite gracefully.

This show delves into the other worlds that exist right before our eyes and these artists bring those alternative cosmos-es to life in our next show.

Save the date!  As always, snacks and drinks are provided and the admission is FREE!

Happy New Year from Reclaimed Room and Building REsources!

Thank you so very much for all your support during our inaugural year!  It has been a terrific launch for this new program at Building REsources.  Much gratitude to all our participating artists this year as well.  Over the last six months we have seen our space transform three times and been fortunate to house work from the following artists:

Martha Jones

Alekandra Zee

Roland Blandy

Reddy Lieb

Tony Hurd

Samuel Fleming Lewis

On display until January 14th is The Living Show with Tony Hurd and Samuel Fleming Lewis,  check it out before it’s over during regular business hours at Building REsources.  (9-4, seven days a week)


Next year proves to be even more exciting!  Stay tuned for information on our upcoming shows and save these dates!

Alternative Cosmos: Opens February 6th (with Solis and Lady Saphire)

W.a.t.e.r.w.o.r.k.s: Opens March 27th (with Tom Kabat, Miles Epstein, Tim Armstrong, Bruce Barton and Clint Imboden)

The show will be our most ambitious with additional events including a bicycle sewer tour that ends at the Re Room on March 29th and a special screening of A Fierce Green Fire, a Sundance documentary about the environmental movement by Mark Kitchell with filmmakers in attendance (date TBA).  Next year will also see a Building REsources staff show, exploiting the talents of our very own artists who serve our customers everyday.  We are also in talks with our friendly neighbor SCRAP to host a show of their very own in our venue.  There’s more, but, we will leave a little mystery for the months to come.  Be sure to stay tuned to all the ongoings and goings on of the Reclaimed Room by visiting and signing up for this blog!

We wish everyone an incredibly safe, happy and prosperous start to 2014.  Happy New Year!!
