Art from Trash 2015

Art From Trash is an annual community event that encourages the reuse of discarded materials in the production of visual art. The exhibition is open to all ages and is a great opportunity for many first time and emerging artists.

Art From Trash is instrumental in promoting creative reuse, and, while the exhibition is a lot of fun, there is an underlying message to use the earth’s resources wisely and to minimise the inappropriate disposal of limited resources.

The exhibition has been going as long as the Resource Work Cooperative has been operating the Resource Tip Shop, since 1995.

Art From Trash is a great platform for artists to launch themselves into the public arena. The exhibition is non-selective and for a reasonable entry fee, artists receive great exposure to a large number of the public, the arts community, and public officials, who have opened many of our exhibitions. Art From Trash includes a People’s Choice Award (voted on by the public), a Resource- ‘Scrap’ [Sustainable creative resourceful arts practice] participation awards for Schools & Community Groups, and the Wearable Art Award.
