"Light at the Top of the Temple" by Jon Kerpel is part of the Harrington Gallery's new exhibit "Repurposed," which runs from today through July 22.
Other featured artists are Lisa Hochstein, Beverly Rayner and Nga Trinh.
The four artists, who all use cast-off and discarded materials to create sophisticated fine art pieces, have a subtle ability to engage the viewer in thinking about the objects we as a society amass and what we so casually throw away.
"Planet earth is on my mind as I immerse myself in every artwork I create," Kerpel says on his website. "As I set to task in my studio I am constantly asking myself how can my artworks have a positive effect on our delicate environment? ... Our environment is everything; without it we have nothing."
The gallery is located at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave. For more information, call 931-4850.
