An exhibition showcasing art works created by local artists using “recycled or found objects” will soon go on display at ArtsPost. Displayed at ArtsPost Chartwell Gallery from 1 April-3 May 2010, ‘Rescued’ will showcase innovative and surprising works, from the quirky to the functional, created from recycled, repurposed, salvaged materials and found objects in mixed media work. Amongst the materials will be wood, textiles, metal, glass, plastic and seaweed.

Rescued is the brainchild of ArtsPost retail co-ordinator Marion Manson, who said she “had a vision of curating an exhibition of works using recycled materials”. “This exhibition will raise questions concerning want versus need, and will highlight the overabundance of choice and manmade products in a commercial society and the waste it produces,” she said.
“It will promote recycling and make viewers rethink what they throw away. Hopefully it will inspire them to make use of waste that they would normally overlook and look at sustainable ways of living.”

Ten established and emerging artists from throughout the greater Waikato will showcase their work in the exhibition, including Hamilton artists Marti Wong, Nancy

Caiger, David Lloyd and Shelley Norton; Raglan artists Chris Meek and Rob Kear; Tim Holman of Coromandel; Julie McDonnell of Taupo; Heather Olesen of Morrinsville; and Di Jeffries of Otorohanga…
