Art Display 

Recycled art Featured this month is artist Jeannette Tetz, creator of "Recycled Art."

Re-purposing materials like the canvas and boards artists create on, is as old as art itself. Recently, it was discovered that a 1570 era portrait of the notoriously murdered daughter of Cosimo de'Medici, the first Grand Duke of Florence, had been "retouched" during the Victorian era. Isabella de'Medici was updated to favor Victorian beauty ideals, rather than fashions of Renaissance Florence. That historic piece which had not seen the light of day for 200 years, was restored to its original Renaissance glory.

Jeannette Tetz is a Castle Rock resident who uses thrift store paintings to create amusing pop art by adding monsters and fanciful creatures! Finding decorative landscapes, still life scenes, or endearing armature pieces, Jeannette re-imagines the image with a humerous touch.

Jeannette's recycled art will be on display until August 15th, 2014.
