"USE ME," a selection of work that I made from on-site salvaged materials is on view through October.

Barbara Lubliner's "Puppy Powwow" installation is included in "REUSE, REDUCE, REPURPOSE: THE ART OF REFUSE" at Drawing Rooms from July 15 through August 14.

Curator Anne Trauben has put together a fascinating group of artists who are all part of the tradition of giving new life to trash, junk and other recyclable materials to make engaging art. 

From the press release: 
"In Barbara Lubliner’s Puppy Powwow, the blight of plastic waste is transformed into a playful scene of socializing dogs. Plastic bottles that would take at least 450 years to biodegrade are fashioned into an installation that evokes transitory soap bubbles, glowing light sticks and balloon animals. As stand-ins for humans, Barbara imagines the powwow puppies getting together in the spirit of cooperation and goodwill to discuss proactive, sane measures to keep our planet healthy." 

The exhibit features Thai artist Thammakit Thamboon’s sculpture outdoors on the front lawn and April Ford, Barbara Lubliner, Jodie Fink, Kate Dodd, Laura Petrovich Cheney, Linda Byrne, Maggie Ens, Robert Lach and Tyrome Tripoli sculpture and installation in 9 gallery rooms.
