Rose Center hosting Made in Morristown, Part 2: Industrial Art exhibit

What to do with a pile of brass and steel turnings, toothpaste tubes and boxes, breaker box components, fabric, chair frame samples? Members of the Morristown Art Association have taken the challenge of transforming industrial samples and scraps into works of art.

Morristown area industries participating in the Made in Morristown exhibit currently on display at Rose Center donated bits and pieces of their products to be recycled, repurposed and reimagined by the artistic process. The result is an exhibit called Made in Morristown, Part 2: Industrial Artistry. The work is now on display in the Keener Community Room at Rose Center.

The group of two and three dimensional art work includes such titles as Steel Growing, Pink Dogwood, Metal Concentration, Woodland Fantasy, Hippie Angel, Morristown Sunrise, and Reclaimed Critter. Clearly, the artists had fun with this project. This exhibit will hang through April 11. The Made in Morristown (Part 1) will be on display through March 31.

The Morristown Art Association meets monthly, the fourth Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Rose Center.

Rose Center features two different rotating exhibits per month. Hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, through March, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Historic Rose Center is located at 442 W Second North Street, Morristown.

More information about exhibits, classes, concerts and rentals is available at 423-581-4330, www.rosecenter.org or info@rosecenter.org.
