In honor of LeRoy Setziol's impact on NW Art and in celebration of the hand-carved Setziol door that came to The ReBuilding Center after nearly ending up in the landfill, local artists have created works of art from salvaged doors to be auctioned at our June event.
The LeRoy Setziol door, unlike his works in galleries across the Northwest, arrived at The ReBuilding Center strapped to a flat-bed truck. It is a story of trash and treasure, of a beautiful and valuable piece of art that nearly ended up in the landfill. Soon to be showcased by The ReBuilding Center, the door’s unique carving, geometric pattern and gentle craftsmanship are its signature. The intricate patterns of ridges divided by flowing lines and organic shapes are smoothed not by sanding, but by deliberate carving and oiling by hand.
Join The ReBuilding Center of Our United Villages on the evening of Saturday, June 19th, 2010 at Open the DOOR to Sustainability, showcasing the Setziol door and celebrating sustainability. The night will include live and silent auctions, featuring a series of used doors reclaimed from the waste stream and turned into inspiring art by Pacific Northwest artists. Each door will have a unique story of its history and transformation. There will be environmentally sustainable contemporary furnishings designed and handcrafted from reclaimed materials from The ReBuilding Center; and other products and packages from local companies using sustainable methods and approaches in their work.
We hope to see you there! http://openthedoortosustainability.com/
