Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

In the spirit of reducing, reusing, and recycling, Feed Your Head is hosting several events over the next couple of months aimed at providing a higher environmental consciousness.

The first is an art supply swap scheduled for Saturday, November 4, from 2-4. Instead of letting those brushes you bought last summer and never used rot in the closet, how about trading them for some ceramic tiles that someone else has left over from a project?? A great way to get yourself some new materials and clean out the stuff you'll never use. Any left over supplies will be donated to Raw Art Works in Lynn.

Next up, we have a clothing swap, which will be held on Sunday, November 12, from 3-6. If you want to get a new wardrobe and help others in need, then this event is for you! For every 5 pieces of clothing you donate to the swap, you'll get to choose 2. At the end of the swap, all the excess clothing will be donated to the Salem Mission's Second Chance Thrift Shop, which not only sells items to provide financing for the expansion of programs and services, but provides work experience to trainees enrolled in their job training program. So if you're looking to spend a few hours chilling out, trying out a new look, and also donating to charity, come check it out. Additionally, all in-stock clothing items will be 10% off.

And, last but not least, we're going to be having an art show in December/January entitled Recycle and Reuse: The Art and Craft of the Repurposed. The aim of this project is two-fold: to educate the public about recycling and conserving resources and to inspire artists to think outside the box and be creative with their materials. All forms of art and craft will be accepted; the only guideline is that the work must in some way incorporate recycled materials--this can range as broad as transforming the original purpose of an item to incorporating found materials into artwork. Proposals or examples of work must be submitted to me at randie@feedyourheadbooks.com by November 5, 2006. The opening of the show will be December 9, which will coincide with the first ever Salem Open Studios.
