“discARTed” Recycled Art Exhibition – West Woods Nature Center

discARTed-LOGO2Last weekend Dana and I stopped at the West Woods Nature Center in Geauga County to view the art on display in their annual “discArted” Recycled Art Exhibition.  Each piece was made from cast 0ffs recycled into beautiful and whimsical items.  Below is just a small sample – there are over 200 items.  Each one is unique and the show includes entries in the categories of artistic, functional and youth.  We found ourselves exclaiming “Wow” more than once!   The  show runs through March 30.

The nature center itself is a work of art.  From the viewing window, you can watch and hear the many birds flitting and feeding from the feeders outside.

    My favourites are the dragon (fire-spewing?! WOW!) and the owl – gorgeous. So creative.
