It is time to get the creative juices flowing, gather up the trash, and start working on entries for Western Nevada Community College's Recycled Art(icles) Show. The popular contest is back at WNCC for its 11th consecutive year. Entries will be accepted Thursday and Friday, March 30-31, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Bristlecone Building Main Information Desk.
The object of the contest is to illustrate the phrase, "One person's trash is another person's treasure." Each year, more than 50 students and local artists use their talent, imagination and junk to create paintings, sculptures and indescribable items for the popular contest.
The contest is open to WNCC students, staff and everyone in the community.
Entrants must use recycled materials and things that have been previously used for something else. The only other rule is that all 2D objects must be fitted with wire or string so that they can be hung on a wall. Besides that, anything goes!
Cash prizes will be awarded for Best of Show ($100), Most Creative ($75), and Most Useful ($50). The top three places and honorable mentions will be awarded at an artists' reception on Thursday, April 13, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
If space permits, all entries will be displayed April 5-21 at the College Gallery in the Bristlecone Building at WNCC, 2201 West College Parkway.
