Four artists’ work is on display at the Stinson Beach Library until 31 January, 2012.
Four local artists are showing art that has been made from the trash they find on our beaches. Each artist has taken plastic detritus and made something amazing and beautiful. It makes us think about what effects humans have on the ocean environment.
Richard James has two of his large meta-bottles on the patio along with 49 jellyfish made out of Korean fishing-net floats and crab-fishing rope.
Lina Jane Prairie has baskets made from kelp and rope found on the beach.
John Norton is showing a few of his collections of similar items found on the beach.
Tess Felix has created two mermaids and a few portraits, mosaics actually, all from the bits of petroleum-based plastic we humans discard every minute of every day which wash ashore on the world’s beaches and are eaten by birds and fish the world over every minute of every day.
