AS THE saying goes, “everything old is new again”.
First published in the 27 March 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
This is certainly true of “Recycled”, a new exhibition featuring works from members of Artists on the Move, a local collaboration, ranging from painting to furniture to sculpture.
The installation at The Station Gallery in the Yarragon station building will be open to the public until Monday 30 March.
Celebrating their tenth year together, Artists on the Move consists of 13 artists from the Baw Baw area.
Founding member and prominent artist in the showcase Alene Bonser said she had drawn since she was a child.
“No particular reason, just I felt I had to do it,” she told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
Recently, she said she had moved more towards mosaics.
Her work “Fragmented Dreams”, a piece which uses an old tray bought at a garage sale and shards of crockery found in Broken Hill, is one of many artworks utilising discarded materials.
Used tea bags, labels, biscuit tins made into instruments and nests made out of twigs and bush nuts are given the same value as paintings of acrylic or pastel.
Others do not recycle material, but reuse ideas of artistic expression in new mediums and with new materials.
All of the artworks are available for purchase, ranging from $50 to $1,000.
The exhibition is free to visit and is open from 10:30 to 16:00 until the end of the month.
