Creative Reuse Exhibit
Posted On:

Ever wonder what to do with all the plastic caps and lids you take off containers before recycling?

Have any great ideas about creative reuse?

In coordination with Tigers Don’t Leave Tracks! And the Sewanee Parents Organization, the Frame Gallery is inviting local kids to contribute “upcycled” artwork made from leftover plastic lids and caps for a public exhibition Oct. 1 through Oct. 27!

We will celebrate the exhibition, and our shared efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle with a public reception on October 3 from 4:30-6 p.m.


All artwork should be smaller than 11” x 14” and should be intended to hang on the wall.

Use plastic lids and caps you’ve saved from recycled containers for part (or all) of your design. (You have lots of time, please use lids and caps you would otherwise throw away, trade and share with friends, or pick up extras from the Frame Gallery.)

Backgrounds may be foam trays you’ve saved from groceries, a leftover piece of cardboard, or a scrap of matte board (picked up from the Frame Gallery).

You may also add other recycled bits and pieces and paint to your design.

Please be sure to label your artwork in the back with your name, age and phone number.

Area children are invited to submit artwork to Harriet Runkle at the Frame Gallery on Friday, Sept. 28 between 3 and 5 p.m., or on Sat., Sept. 29, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m..

The Frame Gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Children will be able to retrieve their work on October 26, 27 and 28 between 2:30 and 5 p.m.

Together we can reduce our use!
