Waste to Wonder 2020
2nd annual "Waste to Wonder" exhibition is in the works, and we are looking for artist to be part of it! While our GalleRE space is all about featuring artwork with reused materials, for our open calls we like any artist regardless of past experience with upcycled materials to apply. We just ask that they be open to working with alternative materials for this particular show. You never know you may love it! We will ask accepted ask artists to explore our Materials Marketplace, and be inspired by our variety of things to make a work of art out of.
This show will be juried to have about 20-25 artists. After being accepted to participate, Resource Depot will provide all the artists with a Reuser Pass (10 bins or shopping experiences) to our Materials Marketplace for sourcing of their materials. This show had a wonderful and diverse mix of artist and artwork last year, we hope to have the same experience this year. Please read through the requirements to apply below. Be sure to check out last years show in Past Exhibitions.

No size restriction as long as it fits in our space.
While we are open to artistic expression, we serve families and are a multi-use space & must make our GalleRe content suitable for that environment. Resource Depot reserves the right to not display any work unsuitable for a younger audience.
