Rust Revival: Creating art that embraces the aesthetics of decay. Assemblage artist Renee Calder and photographer Nancy O. Albert explore ways to celebrate the striking “Beauty of Rust”. Rust is a natural event—and visually seductive. Overtime, rust erodes surfaces, reveals structures and what has been left behind. To these two artists, rust isn’t brown and dreary, or threatening, it’s vital and visually luminous. It can be bright and splashy, and not merely a monochromatic topology. We see rust every day, but after viewing this show, you will never see rust in exactly the same way. freehttp://www.cielcharlotte.com
