You can be sure our resident jewelry artist, Kelley Naylor Wise, will always find a way to match her abilities to whatever themed show we come up with. So, this time, she has up-cycled antique buttons into Sterling silver rings. I understand she's also converted nuts and bolts into jewelry as well, but she's keeping those under wraps until the opening. Come out Saturday to discover what she's been up to.
This is Cecil. He has two horns and two legs. He has four eyes and four arms. He's on his way to becoming an IRS agent. He was dreamt up by Chris Massingill, up-cycled from socks. He and six brothers and sisters will be part of "Artists Scrounging" at Gallery 360. Come to the opening Saturday night. Adopt Cecil.
"Artists Scrounging" will feature recent work by 24 artists who are using found or re-purposed materials in their assemblages, sculptures, mixed media, jewelry and collages. Artists include Laura Fanning, Melissa "Mo" Lashbrook, Michelle Canulla, Nina Sharkey Culpepper, Jay King, Jessica Crenshaw, Amy Edgington, Ming Donkey, Michael Crenshaw, Gerald Brown, Joyce Haase, Fabio Adrian Delgado, Mike Church, Kelley Naylor Wise, Byron Werner, Loogie, Debra Young, Chris Massingill, Ann Filiatreau, Wade Wise, Lynn Frost, Steph Brouwers, Susan Jones, and Jessica Forest.
The opening will be 7 to 10 PM, Saturday, September 20th. Come sip, nibble, see cool stuff and talk to them what made it. The show will run through November 1st.
