Recycled Lamp by Pat Moodie

Our gift shop artist of the month for July is local artist Pat Moodie! If you saw the Fairbanks Arts Membership (F.A.M.) exhibition at the Bear Gallery last January, you likely saw Pat’s glass and recycled lamp. We are pleased to be hosting more of Pat’s lamps in our gift shop during the month of July! 

From Pat: “With all my art I try to recycle whenever possible. For the last 6 or 7 years, I have been working with IA Greenstar using the cast-off computers and other electronics brought to them for recycling. I have taken a new direction recently and am making table lamps that look like flower arrangements. The flowers and foliage are made from the acrylic that comes from computer monitors and TV screens. Over the years I have been saving this acrylic because I always thought it was so beautiful, and I finally figured out a way to use it!”

Bear Gallery visitors please note:
