The 4th annual “Waste to Wonder” exhibition is in the works, and we are looking for artist to be part of it! While our GalleRE space is all about featuring artwork with reused materials, for our open calls we like any artist regardless of past experience with upcycled materials to apply. We just ask that they be open to working with alternative materials for this particular show. You never know you may love it! We will ask accepted artists to explore our Materials Marketplace, and be inspired by our variety of normal and unusual donations to make a work of art out of. 

​This show will be juried to have about 15-20 artists. After being accepted to participate, Resource Depot will provide all the artists with a Reuser Pass (10 bins or shopping experiences) to our Materials Marketplace for sourcing of their materials.  This show had a wonderful and diverse mix of artist and artwork last year, we hope to have the same experience this year.
