What type of art could you design if you were given a window, light fixture, or electrical box? These materials are a few of the pieces that make up the artwork that local artists have submitted for the second annual “Home is where the Art is” Art Show and Silent Auction. Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity ReStore reached out to local artists and asked them to use their talents to create a piece of art utilizing home improvement materials from the Habitat ReStore.
Local artists responded to the challenge! Here a Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity, we are overwhelmed with art submissions and we are very excited for our upcoming art show on February 4th. From very intricate, detailed pieces to painted windows, fans, and cabinets, there is a piece of artwork for everyone.
Every artist’s mind began to create a piece the minute they walked into the ReStore and picked out their materials. Some artists came up with a way to incorporate their pieces into the mission of Habitat for Humanity- they took ReStore materials and created art within the theme of creating a home. Other artists focused on creating something whimsical from nuts, bolts, mortar or tiles. Still other artists created functional pieces, designed to be incorporated into someone’s home. The variety of pieces submitted is outstanding. We are thrilled that each artist was able to use their creativity and imagination while helping the community.
Interested in seeing all of the finished pieces? The “Home is where the Art is” Art Show and Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, February 4th, 2012 from 6:30-9:30 at the Spirit Room in downtown Fargo and includes wine tasting and appetizers from area restaurants. The art will be on display at the Spirit Room and open to the public from Jan. 16th – Feb. 4th.
