About the Speaker:
Vernita Nemec (aka Vernita N'Cognita) is an artist of split
persuasions- a performance artist and a visual artist, as well as a
curator of exhibits in which art and politics touch or, if
Since the late 70's, Vernita has been creating collage and
installations, like "The Endless Junkmail Scroll," a 200 foot
collage shown in its entirety or in segments- a creative solution
to too much junkmail - and other artworks from materials that would
have otherwise been discarded.
In 1994, she founded "Art from Detritus," group exhibitions of art
made from recycled materials shown throughout the country.
Exhibits have been funded by the Kauffman & Puffin Foundations and
sponsored by the NRC (National Recycling Coalition).
Though artists have been recycling found objects for centuries, the
globalization of consumer culture has identified new opportunities
for creative expression. Ed McCormack in Gallery & Studio wrote,
"Art from Detritus: Recycling with Imagination is an exhibit at the
forefront of aesthetic ecology."
