More than 50 artists whose art transcends its humble origins have been selected for the 11th anniversary of Art from Detritus, an exhibit of art transforming society’s discards into unique objects of inspiration, admiration and desire. Some rely on whatever crosses their path to recycle into art, others collect specific stuff or by accident in their odyssey of creative transformation: carving, gluing, painting, nailing, shredding, scraping, dipping, covering, layering, arranging until the viewer wishes she had thought of that.

Particpating artists: Andrew Bailis, Beth Bailis, Fran Beallor, Marcia Bernstein, Jane Bouchard, Paul Bouchard, Richard Brachman, Ione Citrin , Ursula Clark, Joan Criswell, Janet Culbertson, Harry DeLorme, Hilda Demsky, d’Ann de Simone, May DeViney, Annelies van Dommelen, Michael Eck, David Edgar, Ula Einstein, Peetie Van Etten, Chris Gibbs, Paul Greco, Fred Gutzeit, Edward Herman, Cathy Hunter, Kazuko, Jamie Kelty, Tom Kleese, Kathleen King, L.
