The Windsor Art & Heritage Center is seeking artist submissions for the 2017 juried exhibit “Repurposed: A Second Look, A Second Life,” now through December 21.


The “Repurposed” exhibit will focus on how creative reuse has changed the way one looks at rubbish and art, and will run from January 11 through February 11, 2017. For the exhibit, the Art & Heritage Center is seeking artists to transform discarded items into works of art and alternative-use items.


“The possibilities of this exhibit are limitless,” said Museum Curator Caitlin Heusser. “We don’t want to limit creativity in this show. We’re open to anything made of repurposed materials; submit something you’re passionate about.


“So far I’ve seen artwork made of rusty metal, baseball cards, old books, scrap fabric, and even mannequins!”


Exhibition submissions will be eligible for cash prizes — $150 first place, $75 second place and $75 Community Choice award.


“We’ve had a lot of interest from the local community,” said Heusser. “I think this exhibit really speaks to those who perhaps don’t consider themselves fine artists and who work outside traditional mediums.”


Interested artists are asked to send contact information and a photograph of the piece to Heusser, cheusser@windsorgov.com, by December 21 for consideration in the show.

The exhibit is sponsored by DIY Creations.


For more information, contact Heusser at 970-674-3524.
