Reverse Garbage is all about re-use before recycling and for it’s third exhibition for 2013, Cut and Paste crafters and creatives were asked to think about the items going into their recycling bins (eg. paper/cardboard) and turn them into something useful and beautiful!
Cut and Paste features the work of over 20 local artists, craft workers and designers who salvage, scavenge and reclaim items to create their works and wares. A diverse range of paper themed items will be on display and for sale including paper flowers, beads, bowls, necklaces, journals, gift bows, boxes, gift bags, fine artworks, paper goods, jewellery, sculptural items, decorations, home wares and more!
Exhibition Co-ordinator Brooke Nelson says. “Reverse Garbage has hosted 16 themed exhibitions but we’ve never done one showcasing only handmade items created with paper and card before.”
“The items and objects artists have come up with for Cut and Paste are just amazing!” Brooke says
“There will be a range of gorgeous paper items and one artist has even had her original poetry made into a book printed on recycled paper and she will be doing a special reading on opening night” Brooke says
“We’ve also designed fun invitations on salvaged paper that fold origami style to make a little paper pyramid box!” says PR Co-ordinator, Rozina Suliman
