Abtrash Xpressionism Exhibit

SUPPORT

The artwork of Landis Kearnon is on display in the glass cases of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, April 2-30, during regular library hours.

Artist Statement:
After eleven years’ employment, I retired last April from the Pima County Public Library. It was a wonderful job in so many ways, but what I treasured most about those years was the license to express my passion for things green and sustainable in the capacity of branch eco-champion … an appointment I jumped at when it was offered to me. The Pima County Department of Sustainability just happened to be revving into gear around the time I joined the system. So I was doubly blessed: once with assisting in the implementation of PCPL’s long-awaited recycling program; and twice with finding myself, day after day, with unrestricted access to a treasure trove of potential art materials, thus engendering an upgrade in what you might call my passion for trashin’.

Most of the pieces you’ll see in my Abtrash Xpressionist exhibition at Joel Valdez Main Library in April were begun during my library stint. But worry not—you haven’t seen the last of my paper and fabric “trashay” creations. I’ve been carrying on from home since retirement and will continue to do so (see “Trash Factory,” “Blue-Breasted Whuzzit,” and “Landfill Flowers”). Saving the planet—one piece of Abtrash Xpressionist art at a time—is what OutLandis does best.
