From Trash To Treasure

From Trash To Treasure

Contributing Writer Jill Bladh   Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but when looking at tangled piles of junky costume jewelry and broken watches there’s really no beauty to be found.  That is until Terry Lair, head of the art department at Aspire on Mall Blvd (Facebook page iXpress), gets ahold of those tacky odds ‘n’ ends. Along with the help of her students at Aspire, extraordinary collages and mosaics are created, a la Trashe Art. I discovered the Aspire art department years ago when I would bring my dog, Carmen, to Aspire for pet therapy. We visited with challenged adults who worked in the art room and that is where I met an incredible artist, Terry Lair. The paintings she and her students created were and are terrific, selling at art shows and being made into greeting cards. I also noticed that Terry could take any arbitrary item and cultivate a lovely artistic production that ranged from fun and winsome to exquisite. That level of creativity astounded me and embedded in my memory. Soon after a visit to Terry’s studio, I was at a local thrift store. A friend who works there told me that any junk jewelry that didn’t sell within a few weeks was thrown into the garbage. I’m no fan of jewelry,…

Go Ahead… Start Something!

If you’re going to start something, make sure you’re ready. Unless there is an emergency, it’s just not smart to start something until you’re ready. That’s why “ready”…
