File: NR-Art Gallery:  Economy of Means
Mendocino College Art Gallery presents:

“ECONOMY OF MEANS” which includes nine Artists who work with found, recycled, natural, and everyday materials such as old wire, gourds, willow, and seaweed to name a few.  The inventiveness and creativity that is elicited by working with simple-source materials is a refreshing new way to look at the environment around us.  

The exhibit opens Thursday November 6th, with a reception from 4:00 - 6:00 pm.  Participating Artists include Tom Boek’ s willow furniture; stippled gourds by Bob Comings; Kathleen Edwards’ transformed books; Sally Elliot who creates whimsical figures from found sticks; musical instruments by Bruce Halbohm that include everything but, the kitchen sink; seaweed, wood  & feather sculptures by Jacquie Lolich; work by Gail Rushmore, using bones, cardboard, & paper; whimsical animals by  Ismael Sanchez out of old fencing wire; and recycled wood furniture by Candida Sanlorenzo .

“ Art, after all, is about seeing, interpreting, and holding a mirror up to the culture wherein we find ourselves” said Gallery Director, Paula Gray.  “Part of our culture are the multitude of castoff objects of use that might end up in a landfill or trash heap in someone’s yard.  Artist who work in this manner are the ultimate recyclers! With the state of the larger economy these days, the works on display provide a different perspective on the concept of using what you find to create interesting works of Art.

The exhibit runs through December 11.

Regular gallery hours: Tuesday - Thursday 12:30 - 3:30
and by special appointment  (707) 468-3207
