A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
The Trash Transformer Project entered it's second year in 2010 with 8 artworks on exhibit representing the talents of 7 contemporary artists form the Central NY region. With a grant from the Cultural Resources Council, The Alchemical Nursery was able to provide these artists either $50 or $100 stipends for their pieces, and support their lifestyles while demonstrating our message in art.
The pieces included a diversity of methods including paint and ink on wood, mini and full size sculptures, and mixed media wall hangings. All contain salvaged or reused materials that make up at least 50% of the artwork itself, representing the insane practice of over-consumption and disposal that is taken for granted in modern society.

We are truly looking forward to next year's TTP season, and hope you are too. If you'd like to be involved with helpping us to administer and curate the 2011 shows, just get in touch!
