Reclaimed
April 1 -26, 2009
Reception: April 9, 6-8pm
Gallery Talk: 7pm

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.

New Signage project

>The Washington Glass School is creating a new sign for the front entrance. Although still in its early stages, here are some images of the development of the glass types. Color, texture, & graphic legibility are all factors in the design selection. A full size sample test for six different glass types were taken to the site for review by the project team. The choice?…. keep checking the site over the next few weeks, and all will be revealed!

Erwin Timmers creates new award

>

Erwin Timmers (the king of green art) has created the new award for The National Capital Fiat Club (DC Fiats). Using green glass, Erwin cast the image of the US Capitol dome, and formed the glass into the 2009 award.

Eco-artist Erwin Timmers’ arwork relates to environmental issues and he shows this in his themes and the techniques he uses – with Erwin, it’s not just the finished product, but also the process used to create the art.

Erwin teaches many classes at the Washington Glass School that incorporate sustainable design.
