Objet Trouve: An Exhibit Of Found Objects - Virtual And In-Person Exhibit At West Orange Arts Center

Objet Trouve: An Exhibit Of Found Objects - Virtual And In-Person Exhibit At West Orange Arts Center

(WEST ORANGE, NJ) -- The West Orange Arts Council (WOAC) presents “Objet Trouvé, An Exhibit of Found Objects” curated by Carol Black-Lemon.  The Objet Trouvé virtual exhibit will debut on January 9, 2021 on the West Orange Arts Council website  and will be open for in-person timed-entry visits at the West Orange Arts Center, 551 Valley Road in West Orange, New Jersey through February 27, 2021. 

Objet trouvé is a French term describing art created from undisguised, modified or ordinary materials elements or substances that are not normally considered to create art or already have a non-art function.  Artists were invited to demonstrate the unique ways they combine or repurpose found objects to evoke memories, spark connections and build upon themes. Common, discarded or unuseful objects, in the hands of an artist, are given new life, meaning, and purpose. This was a great opportunity for artists to use their imaginations and create something that is unexpected. 

“This exhibit is sure to ignite one’s imagination to look at objects with a fascinating new purpose,” exhibit curator Carol Black-Lemon said. “It's a world of reimagined objects. I hope that when people view this exhibit that they walk away with a desire to create something from their own every day found objects.”
