Own Your Rubbish exhibition

HI All, late yesterday afternoon , I went down to the National Gallery to the launch of Laurie Macpherson’s new exhibition. The proceedings were opened by the director of the Gallery as well as the local director of the European Union who are supporting this important initiative.

Sometime last year Laurie decided that there was too much rubbish lying around.

So she embarked on an awareness campaign encouraging all sorts of local artists to create ‘objets d’art’ from waste material. So successful with this idea has she bene that she has now placed some of the better results into a magnificent show at the National Gallery. It will be worthwhile popping down to the gallery over the next few weeks to see just what one can do with glass, tapes, cansand similar.

This month’s issue of Ndeipi has a very interesting article that Laurie wrote about her “Own your rubbish” Project. Make sure you buy a copy from your local pharmacy or TM today
