Broken toys, yesterday's newspaper, and china shards may seem like trash to most, but in the hands of professionals, they can be transformed into beautiful art and fine crafts. On Saturday, November 6, those in the Columbus area will see such work when they attend the sixth annual Déjà Vu All Over Again Art Show.
Held at Yes Cinema and Conference Center located at 4th and Jackson Streets in downtown Columbus, Indiana, the show will run from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Twenty-two artists from throughout the state were invited to display their work, which includes collage, mosaics, assemblage, jewelry, metal sculpture, furniture, leather goods, woodworking, and fiber arts.
Some of the more unusual entries are those of Bloomington artists Nick McGill and Susie Seligman. Reusing old machine parts, McGill transforms them into unusual candlesticks, and Seligman turns auction and flea market finds into whimsical chairs and sofas.
Also from Bloomington, Martina Celerin, whose work was featured on HGTV, will show her spectacular weavings. Cappi Phillips (Bloomington) is returning with her fanciful mosaics, and metal sculptor Glenn Carter (Bloomington) is returning for his sixth show.
Many who have toured the "Back Roads of Brown County" will recognize Chris Gustin's rag rugs, and first time exhibitor Talia Halliday, of Bloomington, will display handmade journals created from old hardback books.
Also new this year are Nashville mixed media artist Tim Carter-East, mixed-media artist Ann Johnson of Muncie, and Anita Hopper of Indianapolis. Hopper repurposes old leather goods to make stylish clutch purses and handbags. Mary Hambly of Bloomington will display intricately designed paper quilts.
Other new participants include Columbus residents Larry Brackney (assemblage), Martha Butler (jewelry), Maggie Dixon (jewelry), Bill Griffith (woodturning), and Sophie Callaghan Miller (fiber arts),
Some returning artists are Edinburgh jewelry artist Lori Henderson, Marilyn Brackney, who will show found art dolls, and the husband/wife team of Mark and Lynne Medsker of Brownsburg. Mark is a metal sculptor, and Lynne uses mixed media to create collages. Also back to display their work are Columbus residents Jill Stillwell (jewelry) and Chad Shock. (woodturning).
Sponsored by the Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District, Columbus Area Arts Council, Columbus Indiana Visitors Center, Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center,Columbus Visitors Center, and Pentzer Printing, this free event is held in celebration of America Recycles Day.
All the art and fine crafts were created by using scrap or repurposing items most people throw away. The show was created to demonstrate that such work is just as interesting and equal in quality to that made of new materials. In fact, recycled art is becoming collectible, and it's often exhibited in fine galleries and shows across the nation.
