Due to limited resources and safety concerns, Appliance Depot will not continue its Appliance Art Revival this year. However, the good news is that our community has two exciting reuse art events that are open to the public.
The RE Stores 12th Annual Recycled Arts Show will run April 5-27. Details: go to racc.org and search for “recycled arts show.”
Also, Allied Arts second Recycled Arts Resource Expo RARE takes place April 20-21. Details: alliedarts.org.
If you are a professional artist or just a playful person, check out Appliance Depots vast inventory of used parts to create and show your “appliance art.”
Among the goodies are doors, lids, wires, gas burner grates, electric burners, knobs, oven racks, fridge racks, belts, hoses, compressors, motors, drawers, agitators, lint traps, and washer and dryer tubs. The appliance parts are free for participating artists through April 15.
Details on Appliance Depot, 802 Marine Drive, are at 360-527-2646 or reuseworks.org.
