In 2020, things were starting to look up for the Deerfield Valley Art Association. With several events for the spring and summer seasons, they appeared to be on a bit of a roll. But—like everything else in the world—their upcoming shows were put on hold because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
DVAA’s Trash-y Art and Science Show was the first show put on hold until further notice. The art show would have featured upcycled, recycled, and repurposed art made of materials that would have otherwise been thrown away. Connecting Point’s Brian Sullivan met up with Archie Nahman and Jon Bander, two of the artists whose work will be on display when the exhibit eventually reopens.
