The RE Store?s Second Recycled Art Show
September 15-21, 2003
The RE Store, in Seattle, 1440 NW 52nd St

Featuring: the Haute Trash Fashion Show (Sat., Sept 20)
Co-sponsors: Arts Ballard and Washington Citizens for Resource


The RE Store?s first recycled art show, for Earth Day 2002, was
attended by more than 2,000 people, proved very popular and received
great exposure throughout Seattle and Western Washington. The plan for
this year?s show is equally ambitious. This year Arts Ballard and
Washington Citizens for Resource Conservation have joined as key
neighborhood co-sponsors. We?ll have terrific art works on exhibition.
They?ll all contain recycled materials and be selected for the show by
a panel of noted judges. 

Special awards will be given in several categories:
® Youth (Up through age 20)
® Best Use of Used Building Materials
® Best Blend of Form and Function
® Best Use of Mixed Materials
® The People?s Choice Award (voted by visitors to the show)
Special Events: Haute Trash Fashion Returns

Robin Worley?s fabulous show, featuring fashion from trash, will be
back as the highlight event on Saturday, Sept. 20. She?ll be followed
by a concert by a local band.

Arts Ballard will hold a rummage sale during the weekend to "recycle"
art supplies and art works donated by neighbors and friends.

More events are being planned for days throughout the week. Stay tuned.
