Side Art's Cassandra Hoo wrote an in depth review of our found object show Rediscovered Delights. You can read the full version here. Below is an excerpt.
Recovered Delights: The Inventive World of Found Object Sculpture exhibition at the Snyderman-Works Galleries is such a fun and exciting representation of what can be created out of trash and found objects. I must admit, I can’t look at litter and smelly curbside trash without a slight repulsion and the desire to reach for my hand sanitizer. However, this exhibit truly changed the way that I look at trash. It was really inspiring to see all of the inventive and creative things that can be done with someone else’s throwaways. I was also really impressed by each of the eighteen artists’ ability to fashion a completely realized piece of artwork out of a pile of unrelated items and materials; they are all truly amazing puzzle solvers.
When I first walked into Snyderman-Works, I felt like I had just entered a fantasy world of strange and beautiful oddities. If Santa was real, this is what I would want his toy shop to actually look like. There are several larger than life sculptures made out of a plethora of forgotten metal household odds and ends, retro looking toy cars, imaginative wall clocks, beautiful jewelry, several robotic mechanisms, and so much more.
