Celebrating eARTh 2017 features a wide array of artwork with an emphasis on showcasing the beauty of the “stuff” we discard every day. The artwork will be made from recycled materials – reclaimed, reused, recovered, second-hand, salvaged – anything un-new. The show features artists who excel at creativity transforming “stuff” into new and original art, including Nashville-based artists Arlene Wilson and Megan Little.
This will be a cash and carry event and the show will change as the month progresses. The exhibit will be part of TGCR's month-long celebration and support of Earth Day 2017.
Information regarding TGCR memberships will be available. Food, drink, great friends and an open studio project will be part of the opening celebration.
