Nancy Judd, Eco-Flamenco, 2011, Cereal boxes, recycled paint, parachute scraps, Courtesy of the Artist
This dress was created from cereal boxes painted with recycled paint and transformed into cascades of ruffles.
Over 5,000 people wrote eco-pledges on the ruffles before they were sewn on to the dress which was sewn from parachute scraps.

​ReDress: Upcycled Style by Nancy Judd features couture fashion sculptures made from everyday throwaways. Glamorous, shimmering evening gowns, appearing as fine couture and refined garments, are made from crushed glass and salvaged upholstery fabric. Artist and environmental educator, Nancy Judd began creating recycled fashions in 1998 while serving as the recycling coordinator for the City of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Through her art she encourages people to look differently at trash, to see garbage not as waste, but as wasted resources.

This exhibition has been organized by Nancy Judd and is circulating through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.

Lynnette C. Jung Memorial Lecture with Nancy Judd: Friday, September 8, 6:00pm at the Lincoln Center (417 W. Magnolia St): This lecture will feature artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd who utilizes her beautiful couture fashion sculptures made from trash to engage audiences in a conversation about different ways of looking at waste. This lecture is sponsored by Dr. Peter Springberg in Memory of Lynnette C. Jung.

Guy Veloso’s images capture a moment in time where faith, consciousness, and cuerpo become one through ritual. The photographic documentation of the rituals disrupts our contemporary urban reality, summoning another more ancient reality to action, at the world’s end. As we experience Veloso’s reality, we become penitents albeit from different hemispheres. - Maruca Salazar, Curator

The wonders of natural environments are often known to spark creativity in the human mind. Drawing inspiration from nature, while freeing themselves from representational qualities, these 7 artists collectively evoke natural abstractions through varying media. Their works look at man's influence on nature, and nature's subsequent response. Organic references ground their compositions in an effort to make sense of random elements through nature's inherent geometry.
