Reclaimed, an exhibition that focuses on everyday common objects that are reclaimed, recycled, reinterpreted and transformed into art. From Marcel Duchamp’s “ready-mades” to Robert Rauschenberg’s “combines”, artists have been for years recycling and reclaiming everyday common objects and transforming them into something new and unique. This exhibition is open to all artists nationally and internationally to submit work that has been reclaimed and transformed into their own personal artistic statement. The jurors for this exhibition was gallery owners Steven and Linda Krensky.

Fox News on Washington Glass School

>One of the best segments featuring our KING of Recycling – Erwin Timmers. Watch as he tries to break the tempered glass. (Apparently the glass was much thicker – and stronger – than he expected) His desperation in trying to get the glass to perform is delicious. Click here to watch.

Looking for something different?

>Class 906 – Mold Making / Concrete Casting & Finishing
Need a great industrial material to compliment your artwork? Want to shake up your craft knowledge with something unusual and utterly cool? Try concrete!
In this class, one of our favorite instructors – Sean Hennessey – will help you explore possibilities in flexible mold-making, concrete casting and finishing. This rising star of the DC arts scene will impart his knowledge from his years of experience as painter and sculptor for the Shakespeare Theater props department and with his own firm Scenic Artisans . The class will make tiles, proper rubber molds, and play with concrete using colorants and stains. You will walk away with a few finished pieces, molds for further reproductions, and the knowledge to tackle larger projects.
