As many of you know, the deadline to the EcoSquared Art Show is November 21st. I thought I’d share with you some of the artwork in the gallery that incorporates upcycled materials. Upcycled is still a fairly new term, you can learn more here. And remember, the main criteria for Ecosquared is to use something upcycled, have it measure between 6″ square to 8″ square, and have it ready to hang on the wall. We are so excited to see what all of you creative Wisconsinites come up with! Please feel free to leave questions or concerns here in the comment section.

In the month of November we are celebrating the work of Beth Heeney of Green Cricket Salvage. Beth describes herself as part artist, part collector & part treasure hunter. Inspired by found objects and the world around her, Beth takes what others have discarded and transforms them into functional and unique treasures for your home. Beth puts her own spin on being ‘green’ and finds joy in breathing life into her vintage finds. Stop in from 6-9pm Friday, November 11th… refreshments will be served!
