Hey all you artists out there!! Pay attention now…we need recycled art! Interested?
Boundary Bay Brewery will be curating a RECYCLED art show where 100% of the commission returns to the artists themselves! The intention of this show is to raise awareness about recycled and sustainable art. All items in the show must be created with some element of recycled material…the more the better! The art show will be hung November 28th and will be part of “Shop Where Your Heart Is” — a Downtown Renaissance Network event that happens Nov. 28th and 29th as well as the Downtown Gallery Walk, which takes place on Friday, December 5th. All artists interested in being part of this show should email a photo of artwork being submitted along with the dimensions of the piece(s) and an explanation of the recycled elements within your work.
Please keep in mind that Boundary Bay is a family friendly establishment and will not accept submissions that contain explicit graphic and/or sexual nature. All emails should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 10th.
Earlier this year, Boundary Bay partnered up with Sustainable Connections and made a commitment to move Toward Zero Waste. As part of our efforts toward being the change we’d like to see in the world, we thought an art show exclusively featuring art made from recycled materials would be a great way to raise awareness, have fun, and highlight alternative uses for what might get thrown away. As we enter into the holiday season, we here at Boundary Bay wanted to encourage supporting local businesses, supporting our community, and most especially, finding ways to celebrate the holidays that do not have adverse effects on our environment.
p.s. ( Ten Thousand Villages is going to participate in our art show as well as lots of great local artists. We can’t wait!!)
Please have a look at this guy’s work. He recycles bicycles into art. He makes tables, lamps and wall hangings… all recycled stuff.

On his main page he has some YouTube videos to see too.
My name is Dean The Art Wizard based in the UK. My niche is in creating sculptures using recycled items(99% Recycled artwork apart from binding the materials together!)
I love what your trying to do, I also create artwork from unwanted items: i.e
Owl sculpture from a used dictionary & thesaurus.
Squirrel from nutcracker for face & yard brush for tail and many other unwanted items.
I also teach children & adults how to re-use unwanted items in the UK.
I’d really like to get involved with you guys, could I be of any assistance?
Look forward to a reply soon
