Open HotHouse Exhibit: Reimagined, Reinvented
Show runs through May 31st
Join us as the Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center Gallery reinvents itself this spring! CAFAC’s Reimagined, Reinvented Exhibit is designed to give patrons the opportunity to purchase and view original, handmade works of fire art. All entries must include an element of “fire art” (artwork produced by heat, spark or flame). The theme of the work must include or involve the reinvention or reimagining of an item or idea, be it recycled items remade into something new or a thought taking on a different perspective to something that you repurposed into a new function, be it tool, sculpture or jewelry.  Show will run through May 31st.
