Artists continue to experiment and create works using recycled, up-cycled and reused materials. We've seen some pretty incredible extremes as of late, most notably the acclaimed work of Dennis Maher. Currently Main (ST)udios is looking for artists who are interested in this re-purposed medium to sign up for the Winter Group Show, which opens on Friday, February 15. It's the final call for artists to create and display artistically manipulated found materials in a way that speaks to the nature of deconstruction and reconstruction as it pertains to the world of art.
