Local Artists Celebrate Recycled Art at Gallery on High

April 9, 2012

Norah Cannon's "Fancy Feet"

The Gallery on High will host a reception this Saturday, April 14th, to celebrate their spring show, which is called Re-Creative. The reception will last from 12-2pm and light refreshments will be served. At 1:30 pm, a Best in Show prize will be awarded. This $100 prize is generously sponsored by the Building Industries Exchange of Pottstown and Vicinity’s Green Team. All Gallery receptions are free and open to the public.

Entries in this show had to be created from recycled, upcycled or salvaged materials. The artists created an incredible array of work. The recycled origins of some pieces are immediately apparent, while other pieces have a more subtle message. The theme of Re-Creative is wonderfully invoked in this show, as the artists each took something that is normally overlooked, thrown out or dismissed
and re-imagined that item.

Participating artists include: Robyn Burckhardt, Jann Everett DeChristopher, Natalie Cyphers, Susan Ploppert, Christine Burnley, Millie Lea, Gail Ann Herring, Sara Benowitz, Dora Siemel, Bob Hakun, Jon Parker, Joe Hoover, Danielle D’Aries,
Florence Mano, Lisbeth Bucci, Donna Steck-McMahon, Maggie Creshkoff, Sue Eyet, Norah Cannon and Julie Tonnessen.

Dora Siemel's “Buy More Stuff!”

Re-Creative runs from March 17 to April 21. Guests can view the exhibit during regular gallery hours: Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm and Saturday 10am to 3pm. The Gallery is closed Sunday and Monday.

The Gallery School of Pottstown is a 501c3 non-profit community art school and gallery. The School offers day, evening and weekend classes to all ages.

The goal of these classes is to help students develop their creative skills through self-expression and independence. The Gallery on High hosts rotating shows featuring local artists. The Gallery also sells handcrafted, one-of-a-kind gift items.
