Recycled art reception

Looking for inspiration for your recycling bin? Wondering what to do with that pile of metal behind the chicken coop? Check out the art at Hudson Crossing Park’s annual Recycled Art Show, on exhibit through the end of the month at Espressohuis coffee shop, 31 Ferry St. in Schuylerville.

On Saturday, May 4, from 5 to 7 p.m. you can meet the some of the artists represented at this year’s show.
Dozens of works are on display, including three large-scale welded sculptures by sculpture artist Jenny Horstman, as well as works by Leif Johnson, Jane and Paul Bouchard, Jon Segan and miChelle Vera.

There’s also kid’s art, including a moose created by teacher Mike Shea’s Fifth Grade Art Club for the Schuylerville Green Ribbon School Project.

Espressohuis is a nonprofit coffee shop run by the Faith Chapel on Church Street in Schuylerville. The shop is run by volunteers and raises money for nonprofits and community projects. The coffee shop also hosts arts events, and the Recycled Art Show is on display during regular hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

This is the third year Hudson Crossing Park has sponsored an art show, which was held at Saratoga Battlefield the previous two years. The artwork is all constructed of found materials and features two- and three-dimensional works, including paintings, drawings, collage, pottery, photography, sculpture, glasswork, wood, metalwork and stonework. At least 50 percent of each piece of artwork must be made from recycled (discarded or found) materials.

Hudson Crossing Park is an environmental community organization in Schuylerville. For more information, visit
