Upcycling art show comes to Willowbrook

All art in the show was created from "junk."

An Earth Day eco-event will showcase the entries in this year’s Upcycling Design Challenge from April 19 to May 1.

Each entry in the annual contest must feature at least 75 per cent found or recovered material.

Earth Day is April 22 and the annual Upcycling Design Challenge, presented by the Township of Langley and the Langley Arts Council, encourages eco-artists to keep waste out of the landfill by transforming it into something new.

Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite piece. Everyone who votes will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a $100 Willowbrook Gift Card, and the artist with the most votes will be honoured during an Awards Reception, along with winners in several other categories.

A free reception will be held featuring light refreshments and presentations April 28 from 6-9 p.m.
