GREENWICH, Conn. -- A number of contemporary artists are bringing their talents to the C. Parker Gallery this holiday season as part of a unique show celebrating art work created from found objects, recycled materials and re-purposed items.
The exhibition, called "Upcycled!" features the work of artists such as David Buckingham, Neil Powell, John Garrett and Suzy Scarborough, according to a statement from the gallery.
Buckingham's work involves the use of select pieces of metal and chrome from classic cars to "create new forms."
Powell works to transform antique book covers into "bold and intricate sculptural shapes.
Garrett turns found objects into "exquisite assemblages."
Scarborough creates "collaged backgrounds on wood panels, incorporating late nineteenth and early twentieth century novels, chemistry texts and navigation charts into her works."
The exhibition also will feature original custom furniture creations from recreated wood.
The exhibition, at the gallery at 17 E. Putnam Ave., will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Call 203-253-0934 for more information.
