The Women’s Art Association of Canada is pleased to present ‘Trash to Treasure’, an exhibition of curated textile mixed media artworks. Come and enjoy their unique creativity with one of a kind, never repeatable art works. Ruth UpJohn Gallery will turn into an art treasure hunt room. Janet and Deniz are thrilled to share their art works with you.

When Banksy shredded his £1.04 million ‘Girl With Balloon’ during an auction at Sotheby’s and then created a new art work from the slivers of destroyed canvas, a new piece was born, and everyone was surprised. The work was titled ‘Love is in the Bin’ verified as an original art work. While the art-world had the message: “rubbish and art are not mutually exclusive.”

janet f potter and Deniz Seker are bringing this idea to life. As discarded recyclable books, toys, clothing, old art works become their palette to create and construct new treasure pieces.
