Reincarnated Rubbish – Endangered and Extinct

14 September – 2 November

Monday – Saturday

An exhibition of amazing animal sculptures and more created from recycled materials by recycling artist Val Hunt.

With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill creative Val Hunt has created a fascinating selection of large and small sculptural pieces which are both appealing and informative. Animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora – all on the edge of extinction or now extinct.

The sculptures have been made from a selection of throwaway materials, especially Val’s favourite medium, metal drinks cans.

This exhibition presents a subtle message about recycling and preservation, raising awareness of why the creatures on show are endangered or extinct. Find out why species are disappearing from this planet at an alarming rate.

Work is for sale. Entry by donation.
