Phase 2: Show and Tell
Recycled art silent auction and shakedown
Saturday October 15, 8–12 pm

The Auction:
Finished recycled work will be auctioned off, either in a silent or live auction or a combination thereof. Artists and Xchanges will split the proceeds 50/50, with Xchanges’ portion going towards programming.

The Lead-Up
Artists from Xchanges and the community are invited to participate in the ReCreation Room project, using old, unwanted art and the refuse of industrial capitalism to create new works. Recycled artworks will be auctioned off during the grand finale shakedown with dancing, DJ’s (or possibly live music) and general recycled mayhem. A portion of the proceeds will be used to support Xchanges programming.

Phase 1, Art/Found Object Xchange was
Saturday October 1st, 8–11 pm

The Xchange:
First event, the exchange, on October 1, 8–11 pm, artists come early to set up their things on tables (7–7:30). Bring your unwanted, unfinished, unloved art, as well as any cool funky found objects you may have lying around, and pass them on to be given new incarnations!

You have two weeks to work on your recycled piece of art, in any medium or mediums. Your finished work should be ready to display (such as all hanging hardware should be affixed, etc.) and sell.
