Recycled Art(icles) show returns to college

Last year more than 50 local artists used their talent, imagination and junk to create paintings, sculptures, and indescribable "things" at Western Nevada Community College's Recycled Art(icles) show. The contest is back at the Main and College Galleries Tuesday through April 19.

The object of the contest is to illustrate the phrase, "One person's trash is another person's treasure." Entries must be composed of recycled materials, and the materials must consist of things that have been previously used for something else. The contest is open to students, college staff and the community. Awards will be presented at an artists' reception 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 19. Cash prizes will be awarded for Best of Show ($100), Most Creative ($75), and Most Useful ($75).

Entries will be displayed in the WNCC Bristlecone Building's Main and College galleries. This year's event is sponsored by the WNCC United Students Association, the WNCC Art department, and the Recycled Art fan club volunteers. Call 445-3274.
