Through April 26 – Living Arts
From livingarts.org: Nature, Fashion, and War is a comprise of mixed-media tapestries and large-scale charcoal that draw connections between our seemingly human desire to buy new belongings verse the impact our consumerism has on the environment. The tapestries in Nature, Fashion, and War contain objects that were on their way to becoming trash. At one time these items were fast fashion clothing, status symbols, or served a functional purpose. By smashing, wrapping and sewing these objects into canvas and other pliable surfaces, Peppito combines their stories into larger topographical narratives. Living Arts is open noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For details, visit livingarts.org.
