Here is a unique way to celebrate Earth Day which is observed on Friday, April 22: Recycled Art. Kaladi Coffee, located at 1730 E. Evans, is hosting an art show displaying pieces made from recycled material created by the students at Asbury Elementary.The art show opened Friday, April 8, and will be on display for the entire month of April. The coffee shop was packed with Asbury students and their families. Kindergarten through fifth-grade students were featured in the show, with pieces chosen by a panel of judges.The art varied, reflecting the artist’s talent and style, but all sported the theme of recycled material or found-objects. The artwork hangs from walls and balances on shelves to get the maximum effect. Kindergarteners created found-object printing, with crayon resist water color. First graders fashioned shrinky dink self portraits that hung on the Asbury Art show banner. Second and third graders created found-object collagraph prints, while fourth graders did found-object bug sculptures. Fifth graders made found-object self-portrait sculptures. Each piece wasvery different, which made it hard to choose a favorite. Ms. Jennifer Werner, the Asbury art teacher, picked Kaladi’s shop for the art show because it is a local business, supports local artists, and has supported Asbury art shows before. Stop by sometime this April to see all the artwork in detail and enjoy some coffee, too.
