The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.
Folkstore Artist Spotlight:
The Art of Recycling and Upcycling
January 6-January 27, 2018
Making the most of available resources is typical of North Country residents. In January, we will feature the work of several artists who transform cast-off or scrap materials into beautiful decorative and functional items.
The tradition of recycling textiles and other materials is a time-honored one. When resources were scarce, and virtually nothing was wasted, old clothing, bed linens, wood and metal were cleverly transformed into new, useful items.
The TAUNY Folkstore Artisans selected for this exhibit create their works from repurposed materials. Their art represents the spectrum of upcycling - from traditional folk motifs to works of pure imagination.
All works on view in this exhibit are also for sale.
