In collaboration with the Town of North Stonington, Provenance Center of New London, Connecticut, will present our 2nd Annual Abstract Recycling Exhibit June 30 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Stonington Transfer Station located at 215 Wintechog Hill Road, North Stonington, CT. As with last year’s show, this exhibit offers a collection of sculptures created entirely from recycled materials, much of which originated at the recycling center operated by the town of North Stonington, Connecticut. The show includes works of four area artists: Deb Aldo, Dan Potter, RT Spitz and Troy West.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States generates approximately 4.6 pounds of trash per day per person. This translates into 251 million tons of waste per year – about twice as much as that generated by citizens of most other industrialized countries. While approximately 30 percent of this trash is recycled or composted and about 12 percent burned, more than 50% ends up buried in landfills across our nation and outside our borders. Our “consume and discard” society and culture continues to lead us towards an irreparable environmental situation. For our children and grandchildren, we are leaving a legacy of pollution and planet-wide destruction as our land, air and oceans become increasingly degraded by years of ecological abuse and neglect.

It is our hope that this art exhibit will present a chance for all to reflect upon the environment in which we not only live, but actively participate on a daily basis. As we are all members of a human family, we should recognize our membership in a natural family, making choices each day that, however small, impact the world in which we live.

The exhibit will be at the North Stonington Transfer Station, 215 Wintechog Hill Road, North Stonington, CT and will be open to the public on Tuesdays from Noon until 3:00 PM, or by appointment through Provenance Center. For more information, please visit the website at www.provenancecenter.com.
