Trash is an odd medium for art, but as artist and carpenter Meg Hartwig said, “You can make anything from anything.” I believe her; after all, she’s the only creative I know who was an artist-in-residence with a Seattle recycling company. 849 Gallery is featuring two of her installations, one finished with wood and other objects she found locally. In other words, our local trash does a (creative) body good.
