One person’s trash is another’s treasure, and that’s never more true when a host of talented artists give a creative spin to used materials and turn them into works of art.
Since 2009, Hornsby Shire Council and Hornsby Art Society have invited artists to upcycle materials, promoting the concept of reduce, reuse and recycle.
To celebrate Remagine’s 10th anniversary and focus on a current waste issue, all artists in this year’s exhibition were asked to create work that addressed the idea that our society is ‘addicted to consumerism’. Through the 48 works in the exhibition, artists have highlighted this, and other waste and recycling issues affecting us today.
Waste isn’t something that just happens, it’s something we do with the daily choices we make when purchasing and discarding unwanted items. By changing the way we view waste and consumption, we can save valuable natural resources for future generations.
Prize categories include:
- Mixed Media 3D
- Mixed Media 2D
- Digital Art – Stills
- The Cleanaway Award for resource recovery
The winners will be announced at the opening night on Friday 31 May. For more information please go to Council’s website.
