The Institute of EcoTourism
Art Demonstration Aug 25, 2007
Created:  Sunday, September 2, 2007
Updated:  Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Our First ECO MARKET was attended by several enthusiastic participants.  'Assemblage of Found Things' artist Sally Stryker, and Papier Mache Sculptor Wendy Harford demonstrated their technique in a hands on process with local and out of area guests.

In this photograph Rosemary of Chandler AZ (on the left, Elizabeth of Salem, Mass. (center) and Mallory of Chandler AZ (right) assist Wendy with finishing touches to her 100% recycled, life size Great Blue Heron.  The Great Blue Heron is a natural to the high desert waterways of the Verde Valley.

And here is just a sample of Sally Strker's striking assemblage work.  Made from a family history of experience and found items in the southwest.

Of her work Sally states: "My creations might be called found art, Southwest folk art, or assemblage. I guess I would call them transformed art. The materials used in the works once served a particular utilitarian purpose and fulfilled specific human needs; now these discards have been transformed into messages, symbols, themes, and humorous statements about the human condition. Touched by Arizona sun, wind, and rain working their alchemical changes through the passage of time, rusty hinges, old canteens, snakey pieces of wood and other forgotten discards of the modern world tell a new story."

If you are an Eco friendly art/craft or product person, or think you are, gives us a call!
