Join us for June First Friday to see new work by Reno artist, Anthony Arevalo of Assembled In House Furniture and Art! Anthony transforms salvaged objects into functional fine art!
My work starts with the materials I find and collect—objects and scraps most people no longer see value in, the things they’ve discarded in an alleyway or a dumpster.
While the previous life of these objects may be apparent in their surface or their shape, I’m not interested in what they were so much as what they have become and, more importantly, what they could be in the future. I'm drawn to the appearance they have taken on through years of use or weathering—the cracked surfaces and washed-out color palette that comes from being exposed to the high-desert sun. -Anthony Arevalo
