Owen McNally has profiled Anne Cubberly, the Hartford visual artist whose work has been featured over the years at places such as Real Art Ways, Hartford City Hall and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Read the full story here.
Cubberly works out of the Dirt Salon artists’ space in the Parkville neighborhood, and “she loves to resurrect what most people would call junk,” McNally wrote.
In Cubberly’s own words:
Ever since I was very small, anything that was used had more value to me than something that was new. New things were almost a little intimidating. Recycled material has had a little bit of life before you even get to it, and that makes it more valuable to me. It’s not trash to me. It’s a tool, a toy — something to create with.
