Works by seven artists is turning the Mansfield Art Center, at 700 Marion Ave., into a recycling extravaganza during the "Rethink, Recycle, Repurpose" show that officially opened Sunday.

The show is sponsored by Milliron Industries.

Mansfield Art Center exhibition manager Judy Francl said the artists used materials most people would throw away to create their fine works including everything from sculptures and furniture to wearables and realistic paintings.

Taking part in the special exhibit are Ken Arthur of Mansfield with necklaces and sculptures;  M.W. Duncan of Hayesville with intricate collages; Bret Hines of Akron with assemblages with architectual details; Lucah Designs of Bucyrus with furniture and accessories from industrial throw-aways; Barbara Morejon of Ashland with recycled clothing transformed into fashion pieces; Michelle Stitzlein of Columbus with wall hanging sculptures; and Emily Talbott from Newark with realistic paintings from torn papers.

 There is also a second exhibition that opened Sunday at the art center.

 In the lower gallery, artist Bryce Milliken of Mansfield, explores "Dance" through his photography and video.

"Rethink, Recycle, Repurpose" will run through March 3.
  

Regular hours at the Mansfield Art Center are from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Mondays.
