Plastic Bag Baby Dolls by Ruby Re-Usable are currently on display at the Matter Art Gallery. So you can check them out in person!
And in June, Ruby will give a book talk at the Timberland Regional Library in downtown Olympia. TRL will host the “Who’s Your Dada? redefining the art doll through mixed media” book talk with artists Ruby Re-Usable and Clarissa Callesen on June 3 at 7:30 pm. So you can put that on your calendar! ...more information about this book, Who’s Your Dada? Recycled Art Dolls - The Book

Plastic Bag Baby Doll Slideshow:
While Ruby Re-Usable remains the diva of the Olympia Dumpster Divers, there are some truly talented trashettes showing off their stuff, and we finally got some pics to show you what Olympia High School students Lily Smith and Teasha Feldman have on display at the Capitol Theater in the space where Ruby had her art installation (I love the fact that they reused my wire to hang their plastic bag clothes!).
Go check out Trashion Fashion at OFS and elsewhere for the full story. Comments are enabled there.
Congrats to the Olympia Dumpster Divers blog for an inspiring two years and many more to come.
Go read the 2 year birthday post, browse around, comments are enabled there for discussion and birthday greetings. (Happy 50 Ruby!)
And now we continue to blog about our experiences with recycled art: at Cast Off Art Lab, in Olympia, in the Pacific Northwest, in the USA and around the world, searching for information and inspiration and attempting to document the unsung and under appreciated and less well known, as well as the usual list of suspects. Make Art Not Waste remains our motto.
Ruby Re-Usable currently has a show running at O.F.S.'s Capitol Theater. Alcoved next to the stage Ruby takes us to our alleys. Sometimes something sticks out, stops you from seeing through your environment.
