Manzanita—Get out your cool junk—it's time to make trash art. The Trash Art Show is all about working with that irresistibly interesting stuff you've been collecting just waiting to create something with it.

All the rules are made to be broken when creating trash art. From breaking dishes into shards and reforming them into beautiful mosaics, to using broken lawn mower parts to make a kinetic sculpture—everything is fair game.

The 14th annual Trash Art Show is a unique local tradition and creative fundraiser. This year's show will benefit CARTM and Hoffman Center.

Two dates and times have been scheduled to deliver Trash Art for the show. Friday, June 29, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 30, from 10:00 a.m. until Noon. No late entries will be accepted.

Artists may submit up to three pieces of work for the show, which this year will be held at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita. There is no entry fee and the only stipulation is that all artwork must be made with recycled, repurposed or reused materials and must fit through a standard size door. The work must be for sale with the split being 50 percent to the artist and 50 percent donated to CARTM and Hoffman Center.

Each submitted piece must have a title and be ready with appropriate hardware for hanging or display.
