Downtowner Gallery

Current Exhibit

Upcycled

Exhibit Dates: September 1 – November 5

Curated by Round Rock Arts

It truly is possible to create art out of anything, and the “Upcycled” exhibit just might be where you will find your own inspiration to create with materials you find in your home, or discarded and adopted from elsewhere. This exhibit is all about creative reuse, repurposing items originally intended for other uses and elevating what was once obsolete or forgotten into art. Other artists use recycled and repurposed materials as the tools to create their art. As you view the pieces of this exhibit in photos or in person, you will find yourself wondering, “What is that?” about the little details comprising each work of art. Some of the materials you’ll recognize or struggle to notice within each artwork include: copper wire, yarn spools, a discarded bank sign, fossils, hundreds of buttons, plastic bags and bottles, camera and auto parts, and a satellite dish, to name a few odds and ends.

We present the online exhibit here and invite you to view these detailed works – including numerous sculptures – in the Downtowner Gallery. All art is available for purchase, except where noted. his exhibit was juried by Rachel Lynn Hernandez, and curated by Round Rock Arts.
