Opening: Noah Williams' "One Man's Trash"

Sculptor Noah Williams successfully breathes new life into discarded objects by creating imaginative large-scale works of art. His exhibit of found art sculptures, “One Man’s Trash,” will be on view at The Art League Gallery May 9 – June 3, 2013. Meet the artist and learn more about his work at the opening reception May 9, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Inspired by his former day job as a trash collector, Williams uses his experience and vision to artfully rethink and repurpose various pieces of trash. Williams sees potential in each piece of scrap metal, every abandoned tire.

Found art is defined as the undisguised use of objects that are not normally considered art. Its significance is derived from the designation placed upon it from the artist – the arrangement and context of the work. Williams’ depictions of animals, machines, and masks, both real and imagined, are intended to inspire viewers to be aware of the waste they create and the alternative uses for disposable materials. Multiple layers of wire, metal, and unexpected objects invite viewers to explore each sculpture and spark their sense of curiosity.

Event begins at 6:00PM
