Reception & informal discussion: Tues 7 March, 5:30 – 7:30PM
In Winter 2016, students in Barbara Lounder’s Foundation Constructed Forms class worked with used furniture provided by the Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia ReStore. Over a period of several weeks, the students reinvented these objects as artworks. Their goal was to explore the practical and conceptual potential for reworking existing forms, and to help raise awareness about the need for good, affordable housing in our communities. Pieces by Alex Bar, Gina Brigante, Harry Cotaras, Chloe Elgie, Mackenzie Graves, Chelsea Innes, Kaya Karpinska, Jay Merriott and Kat Savoie are featured in ReWork.
