The Recycled Art Show was (is…it’s still up until next month) a little different this year. The Ballard architectural salvage store was bought out by a couple of the employees and now partners with Seattle ReCreative which is a non-for-profit in Greenwood (scroll down for more on that).
What hasn’t changed is that the art is AWESOME and I’ll prove it to you…
It was hard to choose but these 2 pieces were my favorite.
Overall right wall
Overall left wall
Overall left wall, front portion. Metal fence piece is called “The end of love” because it’s an “E” Do you see it?
Close up of cascade of color
I think this is called mechanical but I think it looks like a penguin. Love it either way.
The clocks had a lot of sweet details.
Lamp from the side
Each figure is wood with metal pieces and are magnetized to the base. LOVE them.
Another magnetized piece and the sweetest wood sculptures. Both sides had art.
Fun pieces that had lots of personality
Many people commented on how much they loved this piece.
Close up of ray guns.
2 different artists. The bottom piece is a photograph that has been applied to salvaged wood
This is the same artist as the cascade of color. Cynthia had to rehang it since I didn’t get it quite right. Should look at the pics first. Oopsies!
mmmmmm More mosaics
Painted wood on both sides
People starting to arrive
This piece came late which is why I had to get pictures later.
1st place detail
They let me upstairs at Ballard Reuse and couldn’t help but take a couple of photos before the big start of setting up:

The non-for-profit Seattle ReCreative is in Greenwood next to the other non-for-profit Greenwood Space Travel Supply. Their mission is to recycle art supplies to be used for art. They have an awesome children’s focus right now since the co-founders have small children. Sort of craft supply meets Goodwill. 🙂
