Ward Melville Heritage Organization
In commemoration of Earth Month, the Ward Melville Heritage Organization presents Treasure That Trash, a not-to-be-missed exhibit of impressive artistry created from a variety of common items including recycled materials, spray paint, glass and many more. In this popular cutting-edge genre, artists bring originality and imagination to their works and offer a whole new meaning to the phrase, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Artists from across Long Island will participate with their intricate masterpieces cultivated from a desire to preserve the environment while nurturing their passion for art. Artists to date include:
Bergés Alvarez - creates seascapes and landscapes from recycled materials such as plastic bags, aluminum foil and frayed packing materials.
Janene Gentile - uses recycled glass, spray paint and reclaimed acrylic paints to create her works on canvas.
Ted Thirlby - will display a selection of his “plywood series” paintings using stain and oils on salvaged plywood pieces.
Michael Cole - aka “Copper Mike,” an artist and metal worker who incorporates those skills into his master motorcycle building.
