Trash Show seeking art made with recycled/repurposed materials


It’s never too soon to start. Get out your cool junk—it’s time to make trash art.

CARTMs annual Trash Art Show is all about working with that irresistibly interesting stuff you’ve been collecting and wanting to create something with.

All the rules are made to be broken when creating trash art.  From beautiful mosaics made from broken dishes, to kinetic sculpture created with broken lawn mower parts to—everything is fair game.

The Trash Art Show is a unique local tradition and creative fundraiser for CARTM.

The 2016 event will be at the Gallery at North County Recreation District (NCRD), the show’s new permanent location in Nehalem, with lots of open and well lit space for your art, and plenty of parking for art lovers.

Artists may submit up to three pieces of work for the show.   There is no entry fee and the only stipulations are that all artwork must be created with recycled, repurposed or reused materials and must fit through a standard size door.  The work must be for sale. Sales receipts are split evenly between the artist(s) and CARTM.

Submit work to the Gallery at the NCRD, 36155 9th St, Nehalem, Oregon 97131, on May 11, 2016 between 1 and 5 p.m.  Each submitted piece must have a title and be ready to hang or display.

CARTM, www.cartm.org, is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and is a registered partner with the Oregon Cultural Trust.
