C.R.A.P. - Creative Recycled Art Projects

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States

C.R.A.P returns to WICA under the guidance of local artists Janet Pheifer and Buffy Cribbs.  Their work will be featured with that of other Whidbey Island artists who use recycled and found objects to create fun and stimulating pieces of art.  This year’s show and sale includes a mixture of pieces by Buffy Cribbs, Katrina Hude, Alicia Lomne, Natalie Olsen, Janet Pheifer, Sarah Dial Primrose, and Sara Saltee. 

When asked why she began creating art from repurposed items, Janet Pheifer replied, “Each of us in the show can answer that in different ways.  For me the artwork is fun.  It challenges the viewer to look closer, not just at the composition, but at our disposable way of life; remember, there is no Planet B!  I have a great time creating art from crap that would get tossed into landfills.  Plus, I scavenge and it has to get used, so have a laugh when you recognize in an artwork some little bit that you threw away recently.  And please support the arts, for without them we'd be lost.”  The artists have generously committed 30% of all proceeds to benefit WICA’s programs.
