Exhibit offers an artistic view of trash

Troupe de Trash, an ensemble production of fashion design, performance art and innovation in environmental solutions, is exhibiting an art show, “The Fine Art of Trash Fashion,” at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.

The show starts this week, going from March 27 to April 8 in the center’s gallery, and the reception is Saturday, March 31, from 3 to 5 p.m. Included in the show are a three-dimensional mixed media by Debbie Dean, fashion illustrations by Dolores Guetebier, trash fashion sculpture by Sande Scott and photography by Kristin Oliver.

The mission of the group is to enlighten and entertain audiences around the world about the unlimited opportunity that waste, such as plastic, affords – playfully tongue in cheek, but also to encourage folks to rethink, reduce, reuse and recycle.

Originally part of a group called Haute Trash, Troupe de Trash produced last year’s hugely successful trash fashion show at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, “An Evening In Paris.” The Trashionistas, as they call themselves, return once again on May 24 and 25 in an extravaganza of haute fashion with John Deaderick once again as the master of ceremonies. Tickets for the performance will be available at the art show’s reception. Purchase your tickets at the reception and receive a special VIP ticket that allows you into the performance 15 minutes before the doors open for prime seating.
