by The Editors on March 21, 2012

Joebrubaker 03Beginning April 1, 2012 Carlsbadistan’s William D. Cannon Art Gallery will be hosting a new installation led by the work by Bay Area sculptor Joe Brubaker titled The Exquisite Gardeners.

The Exquisite Garden installation process first took shape at the Donna Seager Gallery in San Rafael, California in 2008 and was soon followed by a second, expanded collaboration at the Bakersfield Museum in 2009. For two weeks prior to the opening of the exhibition. Carlsbad will host the core group of 12 “gardeners,” comprised of sculptors, stonemasons, carpenters, painters, writers and students, as they collect and reuse throwaway materials from our culture, much of it rescued from the waterways and shorelines. Bringing their own tools, materials and expertise to the site, Joe Brubaker and the Exquisite Gardeners will create a thematic installation from this raw material. Participating local artists include Carlsbad muralist Ron Juncal, Vista sculptor Elon Ebanks and students from MiraCosta College. At the end of the exhibition, the installation is carefully dismantled to leave no trace behind and create no new waste.
