Recycled/repurposed materials are the thing at Flower Power, featuring artwork by 12 regional artists, (including Katie Samuelson, whose chair and table are pictured above). You'll see some weird stuff: an antique Victrola made into a cartoon-viewing station, mixed-media created out of old record albums, and so on. Head to the opening reception on May 17 for a chat with the recyclists themselves.
