2020 Lindkrantz art show planned for Bowen

The Sara Lindkrantz Retrospective, sponsored by the Big Canoe Artists Club on June 16, honored the work and life of an artist, friend and neighbor who passed away on April 20.

During the retrospective $771 of Lindkrantz’s art and reprints of her digital work was purchased. “And for a really cool cause,” said her friend and fellow artist Lisa Schnellinger.

“The proceeds will go toward putting on a show that combines Sara's two loves: art and the environment. She and I often talked about how great it would be to do an art show where the submitted pieces had to be made from post-consumer materials—a fun way to engage people to think about ‘waste’ as a resource.”

Sculptures from metal appliance parts, a collage made from discarded paper, plastic bags woven into a textile, broken glass fired in a kiln, even old house paint used in paintings would be examples of post-consumer materials used to create art.

Schnellinger said she and Ginny Greenwood, director of the Bowen Center for the Arts in Dawsonville, are tentatively planning the event for March 2020. It will involve students as well as adults. More information will be announced later this summer.

Reprints can still be ordered from Lindkrantz's "official" printer, John Seibel Photography. People can contact Schnellinger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to get a copy of the digital catalog, which includes an order form.
