Waste2Art Exhibition Opening Night: Orange City Library

Fri 23 June at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Handmade and repurposed is in vogue, so dress up for the Waste 2 Art Exhibition Opening and Official Announcement of the Winners in this year’s competition.

Waste 2 Art is a community art exhibition and competition open to all residents in the NetWaste region. It showcases creative works made from reused waste materials. The aim is to challenge peoples’ perceptions about ‘rubbish’ and to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts. This is the year of textiles and fast fashion. The art exhibition runs from Monday 19 June until Friday 30 June.

You are invited to join us at Orange City Library on Friday 23 June at 5pm for the Announcement of the Winners!!!! Light refreshments will be served.

Thank you to the generous sponsorship of the SIMS METAL – WASTE 2 ART Competition by The Agrestic Grocer, Caboodle of Orange, Cured, ECCO, Hobbysew and Raw Canvas, REDS: Choose Colour, Rosnay Organic, See Saw Wine and Scoop Wholefoods. Makers and artists of Orange have used a creative and innovative approach to visually represent the reduction and reuse of waste in the City of Orange.
