RE-UP: An upcycling themed group exhibit

Graffiti Gallery is pleased to announce RE-UP, an up-cycling themed group exhibit, as part of National Youth Arts Week featuring artwork from Winnipeg and across Canada. The opening reception will be held Friday, May 1st, 2015 from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at Graffiti Art Programming, 109 Higgins Avenue. 

Works on display explore up-cycling and repurposing found objects through an artistic lens. The premise of the show is to explore issues surrounding our environment and our interactions with the environment through the process of creating something new and beautiful out of objects from our daily lives that have been discarded. 

Artists are asked to submit a photograph of their found object to be displayed alongside their completed piece for the exhibit in order to prompt discussion and the exchange of ideas about our societal role in preserving our environment.
