Market Street Gallery and San Francisco SCRAP (Scroungers Center for Reusable Art Parts) are pleased to announce an exhibition of outstanding works created by local artists and made entirely from recycled materials. On exhibit at Market Street Gallery for the month of June, "ReArt" is the embodiment of SCRAP's core mission to divert materials of use to artists from the waste.

The diverse work presented in this juried exhibition addresses ecological and environmental issues in somber, whimsical and poetic ways. Twenty-eight artists were selected by a 3-person panel of Judges that included Paul Fresina, director of the artist-in-residency program at the SF Recycling Center, Christina LaSalla, co-president of the LAB gallery of San Francisco and Steven Wolf of Steven Wolf Fine Arts gallery, also of San Francisco.

Artists included in the exhibition are: Aimee Baldwin, Cole Bauguss, Jim Caddick, Claudia Chapline, Jerry Chatham, Amanda Curreri, Mike Farruggia, Valerie Harris, Al Honig, Michael Kerbow, John Kuzich, Lilli Lanier, Lauielu, Jane Newman, Mari Naomi, Jessica Niello, Emiko Oye, Dennis Parlante, Judy Pettite, Jon Rolston, LaVonne Sallee . Joyce Savre, Vivian Schupbach, Lorna Stevens, Charles Stinson, Harold Thomay, William Ulrich and Hillary Williams.

About San Francisco SCRAP (Scrounger's Center for Reusable Art Parts)
Founded in 1976 By Anne Marie Theilen, SCRAP is a non-profit creative reuse center, store and workshop space. Donations of re-usable materials such as textiles, paper, jewelry findings, wood, buttons and plastics are collected from businesses, institutions and individuals and distributed to art and educational groups. By breathing new life into old objects, SCRAP reduces the amount of waste going to crowded landfills. By offering low cost art and re-use workshops and providing schools and organizations with badly needed art supplies, SCRAP stimulates creativity and environmental awareness.
