The Chilton County Arts Council is inviting local artists to participate in the Another Man’s Treasure Art Show.

“The only rule for it is that it be made from found objects,” organizer Rebecca Mitchell said.

While each piece must start as a found item, Mitchell said new items can be used to complete the project.

Entry into the art show is free, and artists have the option to list the piece as for sale.

According to art show information, “Artists may price and sell their work. Each artist is responsible for their own transactions and for paying their own taxes. All work sold will be retained until the end of the show.”

There are some size limitations for pieces.

“For 3-D art, we ask that it not be any larger than your small kitchen chair,” Mitchell said.

Two dimensional pieces need to be framed and ready to hang. Framed art must be smaller than 24 inches high by 28 inches wide including the frame.

Applications will be available soon through the organization’s Facebook and website

Artwork and applications will need to be delivered to the Rose Gallery on May 2 from 1 to 4 p.m.

“It is just another way to bring people in,” Mitchell said. “When people think of art they think of a picture on a canvas, this is just a way to show them there is more to art.”

Mitchell said one art piece started as a T-shirt that she painted on with eye shadow. Other projects have repurposed old jewelry or reused paper bags.

Another Man’s Treasure Art Show will be held at the Art Council’s Rose Gallery, 703 Second Avenue North in Clanton.

The exhibit will open on May 5 with a reception from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Mitchell said she enjoys meeting the other artists that participate each year.

Artists are asked to pick up their work on May 30 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Mitchell has also used broken ear bud pieces to make jewelry.
