Tuesday Nights Artists’ Group plays with trash

Members of Ramona’s Tuesday Nights Artists’ Group played with trash to create 30 different pieces they’ll be showing in Ramona Town Hall June 14 through 17.

The show demonstrates what can be created when artists recycle, reuse, recover, reutilize, recondition, and recontextualize.

The public will have an opportunity to meet the artists at an opening reception Thursday, June 14, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Town Hall is at 729 Main St.

The show will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 15 through 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Works by 18 artists, most from Ramona, will be featured.

“Experience paper bags transformed into a jacket, hat and shoes or objects found along the road becoming a working kaleidoscope,” states the show’s announcement. “Cat food cans, torn volleyballs, blue painters tape, and plastic swimsuit forms change from their original use into the artists’ reinterpretation of these objects. Each piece has over 85 percent of reused materials, including threads, tape, and glues.”

The group takes its name from its meeting night, Tuesday, at various locations in Ramona.

Award-winning Ramona artist Helen Wilson coordinates the show. Wilson teaches sculpture at Palomar College and gives private lectures, workshops, and classes.

She earned her Master of Fine Arts degree at San Francisco Arts Institute.
