Plastic bags are happening in Turku


Two artists whose work I've been loving in the internet for a long time are visiting Finland next week. Good times!

They are:
Jason Rosenberg www.jason-rosenberg.net/
Emily Ryan www.emily-ryan.nu

I'm looking forward to Jason's plastic Bag Happening that he's putting up in B-galleria on Monday 22nd. The happening is a celebration of the colors, ideas and textures of plastic bags. There's also a small expo of Emily's whimsical drawings. Please come and join us if you are in Turku!

Here's the info:


PLASTIC BAG HAPPENING is a plastic bag exchange, in which you are
invited to come with a plastic bag and leave with a different one. The
time in between these two actions has many possibilities also.

PLASTIC BAG HAPPENING is also an exhibition, which celebrates plastic
bags from around the world, so bring one in, and participate in the
exchange and cross-pollination of textures, colors, and ideas.

Show us your favorite plastic bag! Or trade it in for a new one! Or
purchase a plastic bag creation! Or just come in and look around!

It is only a one day affair this time, so please come say hello!
