Most of my facebook buddies will know of this news already, but its way too exciting not to share with my blogging friends too! Way back when in 2011, the lovely Jo Murray sent me a link to Landfillart.org 'The Landfillart Project' a call for artworks made with recycled hub caps - liking the concept, I created my piece and posted it off to Pennsylvania (previous blog posts). Three years on, my transformed hubcap entitled Threaded Notions has been selected for their very first exhibition entitled, "Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art" held at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester, Virginia USA - OMG, excitement plus!!!
Second Time Around: The Hubcap as Art prides itself as an environmentally inspired contemporary art exhibition presenting works by nearly 300 artists from every U.S. state and 35 other countries, including little ole me! So if your in the area please do call in and see the show - the Official Opening is on Saturday 6 September, 2014 and exhibits through to March 1, 2015. Sadly being on the other side of the globe I'll not get in to see the exhibition - so if there is anyone out there that does, it would be fab to hear all about it!
