Torpedo Factory: RECLAIMED

January 3, 2009 (RECEIVE)

Target Gallery

Torpedo Factory
Alexandria, VA
April 1 - April 26, 2009

Reclaimed, an exhibition that focuses on everyday common objects that are reclaimed, recycled, reinterpreted and transformed into art. From Marcel Duchamp’s “ready-mades” to Robert Rauschenberg’s “combines”, artists have been for years recycling and reclaiming everyday common objects and transforming them into something new and unique. This exhibition is open to all artists nationally and internationally to submit work that has been reclaimed and transformed into their own personal artistic statement.

Juror: Steven and Linda Krensky
Steven and Linda Krensky are avid art collectors and gallery owners. They have a contemporary art gallery in Baltimore known as Light Street Gallery. The gallery came about for their need for more space so that they could continue to collect art but also to help promote artists.
