Art that would make the maytag repair man proud

Appliance Depot has put out a call for artists interested in creating art from appliance parts for its second-annual Appliance Art Revival, to be held in late spring.

The revival is a fund raising auction for Appliance Depot, a nonprofit training business that salvages, repairs and sells used appliances.

The job training program saves donated appliances for reuse, generating thousands of leftover parts, including knobs, handles, tubes and hoses, in the process, Jager said.

Interested artists can pick up free appliance parts from Appliance Depot, 802 Marine Drive. Revenue from the auction will be shared between Appliance Depot and the artist.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 31, with selected works displayed in the community prior to the auction. For more information, call 527-2646.
