In honor of its fortieth year, SCRAP is excited to present Reclaimed: Elevating the art of reuse, a juried art exhibition that will run from October 1 through October 23 at the San Francisco Arts Education Project (SFArtsED) gallery, located in the Minnesota Street Project. An artist’s reception, open to the public, will be held on Saturday, October 8 from 1pm-4pm at the SFArtsEd gallery.

For forty years SCRAP has served as an invaluable resource for artists and educators throughout San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. Reclaimed is SCRAP’s sixth art show showcasing innovation in creative reuse as part of its mission to stimulate creativity in children and adults alike.

With a panel of jurors including Deborah Munk, manager of the long-standing Recology Artist-in-Residence program, Andres Guerrero of the Guerrero Gallery, and Dianne Platner, Chair of the SCRAP Art Show, Reclaimed elevates the art of reuse by displaying a wide range of artworks from kinetic sculpture and video to paintings, assemblage, and textile constructions. Of the nearly 200 Bay Area artists who submitted works to the show, 43 were chosen to exhibit work including Leah Virsik, Mansur Nurullah, Nemo Gould, Glenn Carter, and emiko oye.

Accompanying the group of artists selected by jury will be works from established artists renowned for their use of reclaimed materials. These artists who show internationally, in galleries, and major museums loaned pieces to Reclaimed in support of SCRAP.

Mildred Howard, Square Meal. Represented by Anglim Gilbert, Mildred is known primarily for her sculptural installation and mixed-media assemblages.

Peter Gutkin, Atlas. Recognized for its aesthetics and functionality, Peter’s work is exhibited internationally and in major museums

Craig Baldwin, Bulletin. A filmmaker and curator whose interests lie in archival retrieval and recombinatory forms of cinema.

Robert Hudson, a wildly colorful, fanciful assemblage on loan from the Brian Gross Fine Art Gallery.

On the closing day of Reclaimed, SCRAP will host a Community Day in partnership with Minnesota Street Project and SFArtsEd. From 11am to 4pm on October 23, the public will be invited into 1275 Minnesota Street to view special installations relating to food waste, listen to live performances of music made from recycled materials, and participate in family-friendly creative reuse workshops. This will be a free event.
