About Art Ecologie:

Art Ecologie Group is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists.

We are a community made up of creative individuals who foster a collaborative effort in making our work known. Our mission is to cultivate the exposure needed for each other to inspire and propel our work. We encourage each other’s creative success while educating the public on alternative ways to recycle.

ecoFAB Trash Couture

Couture as Reaction to the Ecological Movement

Featuring works by Artists: Flavia Lovatelli, Marcee Musgrove, Monique Luck, Lori Love, Edelweiss De Guzmann, Marynel Watters, Rocio Llusca, Francisco Gonzalez, Emily Andress, Verna Witt, Teresa Rench, Cher Cosper, Elizabeth Skinner, Susan Andre` and many more.

Upcycled, repurposed and found materials are used to create elaborate detailed couture designs. The purpose of the show is to focus on ways to reverse throw-away culture by giving new precious life to discarded items by turning them into art.

Tapp’s Arts Center will be turned into an interactive environment featuring the 2-D, 3-D, and wearable art of each of the participating artists. The festivities start at 7pm with live musical performances, spoken word, and a presentation of the eco-couture works, followed by a party.
