Get ready to sail away on a dreamy adventure with our Reuse Artist in Residence in her upcoming show “Afloat and Gleaming: Works by Megan Little.” Crafted from materials and daydreams collected along the way, her impressive floating art creations will be on display from November 11th – December 7th in TGCR’s Green Gallery. The opening reception will be held Saturday November 11th in conjunction with the East Side Stumble from 7-10pm. Join us for a night full of whimsical art, complimentary refreshments, and a hands-on reuse workshop.
Little’s cheerful, colorful, and whimsical art is a reflection of how she approaches the world we live in with a playful and childlike wonder. While recognizing the darker side of our existence in this beautiful yet broken world, she chooses to only add light and beauty with her artistic expression.
Her art is full of travel themes that capture the the vastness of the ocean, land, sky, and excitement of seeing the unknown, and is inspired by the three countries she has lived in, along with the many others she has traveled to. She believes that wastefulness is a failure to value and appreciate the little things in life, and the people who have labored to make the objects we so quickly discard. She hopes to encourage viewers to appreciate the beauty of this world and recognize our roles as compassionate tenders of the planet with her gorgeous reuse sculptures.
Join us for Megan’s opening reception on Saturday, November 11th and create an upcycled, magical reuse sculpture of your own under the direction of our education coordinator and skilled fiber artist, Beth Reitmeyer. Participants will work with commonly discarded scraps of fabric and give them new life using a simple additive sculptural process. This take home project is free of charge and suitable for all ages and skill levels.
Make sure to stop by and say hi to our neighbors at Platetone Printmaking to enjoy more art and another complimentary workshop!
