Remade in Cleveland Opening Reception

Friday, January 15 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm

The first exhibition of 2016, Remade in Cleveland brings together the work of Doug Meyer (Rustbelt Rebirth), Kevin Busta, and the firm Rustbelt Reclamation—all Northeast Ohio artisans who use locally sourced wood and metal to create custom tables, seating, lighting, mirrors, wall features, and tabletop objects such as clocks, serving boards, wine caddies, and even “paper” planes.

Resourcefulness and creativity are common threads binding these artists together: rather than starting from a blank slate, they seek out interesting materials that have already been used for some other purpose and are now ripe for a second life. The resulting furniture melds practicality and imagination in functional objects that are intended for use in day-to-day life—but are also beautiful, compelling, often intriguing forms that sometimes evoke their past lives.
