The Encinitas Public Library, in San Diego's North County, recently opened a fascinating and timely Recycled Art show. It runs through June 6. You can expect every medium from wood and found object assemblages through bottle art through textiles. I especially loved an haute couture, hand-dyed and beautifully tailored women's coat, made from an old sheet.
The opening reception was deliciously catered, but decidedly un-green, as it offered water in those irksome tiny plastic bottles. In fact, a troupe of performance artists covered in such trash ominously shook their bottles at everyone -- making it hard to talk to fellow art lovers.
Look for art by two of my friends, Ariane Brittany and Irv Simpson. Plus, the library building itself is a work of art.
