The Plant People

224 Seward St.

Reception: 4:30-7 p.m.

Faced with stacks of her old paintings, Juzeler decided she would recycle them into new art. For this show she has rolled, wrapped and otherwise contorted the orignal canvases so that their images are no longer visible, and added layers of wax that is sometimes carved into patterns. Blocks of wood are also used in some of the pieces.

Many of the works are framed in heavy glass, held together by wing nuts, presented as three-dimensional sculptures that can be viewed from either side. She will have 14 pieces for sale at this show.

"A Klondike Tale," by Avery Veliz, books and art prints (see C1)
