"Art with a Repurpose" to open Dec. 1 at Reflection Gallery

HANCOCK -- The Finlandia University Reflection Gallery will present a juried exhibit of artwork by Finlandia students, faculty, and staff Dec. 1, 2011, to January 29, 2012.

The exhibit, "Art with a Repurpose," is co-presented by the Reflection Gallery and the Finlandia Campus Enrichment Committee.

An opening reception will take place from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, at the Reflection Gallery. The reception is open to the public and refreshments will be served.

The artwork in the juried exhibit will use repurposed materials in a creative way. Materials may include magazines, water bottles, scrap metal, and other repurposed materials.

"In this day and age, manufactured goods should be used to their full potential," says Yueh-mei Cheng, Finlandia professor of studio arts. "With this exhibit, the Reflection Gallery wants to encourage students and others to see purpose in previously discarded products."

The Reflection Gallery is on the second level of Finlandia’s Jutila Center campus, 200 Michigan St., Hancock.
