Jay Mead's new exhibition "Re-Purposed" opens with an artist talk on Monday, April 30 at 7:30pm. The exhibition is on view until May 25.
"Aside from being concerned about the lifecycle of materials and the fact that so much good material is discarded and becomes landfill, I have been intrigued by what time and the elements do to these materials. The roofing for instance, has a special patina suggestive of landscapes, lead, and atmosphere. This is aged galvanized metal and I find it continually interesting to look at."
