 RE-FORMED!:  FOUND OBJECT ART

Five Bay Area Artists Inspired by Unique Finds

Addison Street Windows Gallery
2018 Addison Street, Berkeley
Berkeley, CA  94704

What:  Sidewalk Opening
               When:  Sunday, January 17, 2010
What Time: 1:30 - 3:30 pm

 

Re-formed!:  Found Object Art, a showcase of artwork inspired by chance encounters of artist and object, can be seen in the Addison Street Windows Gallery from January 17 - February 28, 2010.  A sidewalk opening with live music, a block-long art treasure hunt and sidewalk chalk for artists of all ages will be held Sunday, January 17, 2010, 1:30 - 3:30pm and is open to the public.

Exhibits in the Windows Gallery, located on Addison Street between Milvia and Shattuck Streets in Berkeley’s downtown Arts District, can be viewed 24 hours a day from the sidewalk, and are free and wheelchair accessible. 

For these five Bay Area artists, unlikely finds are re-imagined as unique new treasures. Cast off kitchen implements and musical instruments re-emerge as standing and hanging light fixtures. Discarded wood framing, a broken antique chair and surplus oversized copies become integral elements in multimedia works. Mechanical and metal objects, pieces of piping, and objects found in nature are reborn as figurative and abstract sculpture.

Eve Donovan (evedonovan.com) branched out into creating found and 3 dimensional arts after more than 20 years  of painting and printmaking.  She creates multimedia works from street and yard sale finds, broken stringed instruments, and other inspiring miscellany.

Helen Holt (www.hellywelly.com) transforms antique wind instruments and lamp bases into one-of-a-kind functional lighting fixtures and candelabras.  Her work suggests the human figure and other familiar objects. Her lively re-creations are embellished with modern detail and handmade lamp shades.

Al Honig (alhonig.com) creates “manufactured art”.  Figures, birds, and abstract assemblages take flight from his extensive collection of pipes and parts set out in aisles on long tables in his San Francisco studio.

Jana Olson, (panachelighting.com) restores antique lighting and creates imaginative functional chandeliers from recycled kitchen implements.  Teapots, coffeepots, coffee cups and saucers, and various unusual kitchenwares becomes new again as lighting fixtures. 

Lawanda Ultan, multimedia artist, finds faces in odd places, and creates assemblages from objects found in nature.
