When looking for supplies, most artists go to an art supply store, perhaps Hobby Lobby or an online warehouse like Dick Blick or Cheap Joe's. Not Mike Fowle.
Fowle's supplies usually come from the Salvation Army, the junk yard, or in the case of Spring Chicken, the side of a dirt road. Fowle's found art and art from repurposed objects have found a home at the Black Creek Arts Center (rather than the Island of Misfit Toys). Along with incredible creations of Munsey Millaway, Erica Stankwytch-Bailey and The Streeters of Pop's Glass, Fowle will be a part of The Green Exhibit.
The Green Exhibit will open with a reception on April 8th from 5-7pm at BCAC. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend. Featuring Fowle, the exhibit will also highlight Stankwytch-Bailey's jewelry, Millaway's birdhouses, and the ecological glassware of the Streeters.
The Green Exhibit will remain on display through April 29th. The Black Creek Arts Center is located at 116 W. College Ave. in Hartsville and is open 10-1 & 3-6 Tuesday through Thursday and 11-3 on Fridays.
