Exhibition June 22 – August 31, 2019 (extended run)
Loft at Liz’s explores technology in its 12th annual exhibition of Diverted Destruction, which features works comprised of found objects – discarded and repurposed trash items which would otherwise be bound for landfill. The exhibition contains a special “found-object” giveaway installation by curator Liz Gordon, where visitors are welcome to take home items for use in their own creations.
Featured artists: Debby & Larry Kline, Dave Lovejoy, Liz Mamorsky, John Peralta, Joanna Szachowska – Tarkowska, Monica Wyatt. See a selection of images in the gallery below.
