Eco Artist to Discuss Work at F.C. Arts Show Opening

Falls Church Arts will celebrate its Eco Art show next Thursday with a meet the artists reception at 7 p.m. at ArtSpace Falls Church, 410 S. Maple Ave. The event will feature a presentation and question-and-answer session by the show’s juror, Olivier Giron. He will discuss his Eco Art work efforts in the last few years to heighten awareness of the “trash effect.”

The Eco Art show represents more than a dozen artists whose work consists of found objects constructed into works of art. Art pieces range from constructions of cut-up credit cards in a mosaic to a seven-foot family tree sculpture. Driftwood with an uncanny resemblance to a crow made into a puppet and jewelry made out of last year’s calendar all await the visitors at ArtSpace Falls Church. The exhibit and reception are free and open to all. For more information, visit
