Turning Trash into Treasure

CityScape Community ArtSpace, North Vancouver, BC - Aug 6-Sep 3

by Michael Turner

Participants in this exhibition were selected to represent community arts councils from North Vancouver to Pemberton. The catch, as it were, was to produce artworks from materials gathered during cleanup drives at local lakes and ocean sites. Composed from these “catches” of beverage cans, sunglasses, golf balls, plastic oars and more are works that sometimes allude to the conditions that allowed for their abandonment.
