Small Worlds Recycled Art Competition and Exhibition

From the City of Maribyrnong website:

'This inaugural recycled art competition celebrates the reuse and recycling of small-scale materials in the City of Maribyrnong. People are invited to submit artworks smaller than 30 x 30 x 30cm that communicate sustainability and ingenuity. The competition ends with an exhibition of the best entries launched by a gala awards night amongst sumptuous food!

Why ‘small worlds’? Too often waste and environmental destruction is seen as something ‘out there’ that we have little control over. By seeking creative responses to waste on a small scale, the competition invites people to consider the environmental impact of the human scale items in their lives.'

A good friend and fellow artist put me onto this. It's right up my alley: recycled/reclaimed materials; small in scale but not necessarily in message. I have two pieces in this show.
