Lemont Center for the Arts current exhibit:
“RE: -claimed, -imagined, -purposed”
July 9th- August 29th, 2021
“RE” is an exhibition that will focus on 2D and 3D works created from previously used materials. In a world where goods are easily acquired and just as easily abandoned, this show places a value on the artistic transformation of salvaged items. Found objects, reimagined images, and “treasures” recused from curbside all have the potential for a new life as assemblage, mixed-media collage, or up-scaled furniture. Reclaimed items can retain some of their previous form or be so heavily reworked as to no longer be identifiable. Let's get out there and support the arts by visiting Lemont Center for the Arts!
Hours: Noon to 4 pm Fri, Sat, and Sundays
Location: 1243 State Street, #101, Lemont, IL
