Val Britton


ReBuilding Center Shed Talk featuring GLEAN Portland 2022 Artists

Please join ReBuilding Center’s Shed Talks for our panel discussion featuring GLEAN’s 2022 artists Val Britton, Mady Dubin, Anis Mojgani, Joshua Sin, and Ahuva S. Zaslavsky, with host Leslie Viegant. Panelists will explore themes including waste, consumption, ownership, and creative reuse in relation to their forthcoming work and GLEAN residency experience.

GLEAN Portland is an artist residency program that challenges participants to “push the boundaries of material exploration” by creating work using materials gleaned from the Metro Central Transfer Station (also known as the “dump”). GLEAN is a partnership between Recology Oregon Recovery Inc., Metro, and Cracked Pots, a local nonprofit dedicated to waste reduction in our community.

We invite you to further support our panelists at the GLEAN Artists-in-Residence exhibition opening on February 2nd at the Parallax Art Center in Portland, Oregon.

Glean Portland Annual Artist-in-Residence Exhibition

Please join us for our annual Artist-in-Residence Exhibition opening on Thursday, February 2, 2023, at Parallax Art Center. This exhibition will feature new works by our 2022 GLEAN artists Val Britton, Maddy Dubin, Anis Mojgani, Joshua Sin, and ahuva s. zaslavsky.

GLEAN is a juried art program that taps into the creativity of artists to inspire people to think about their consumption habits, the waste they generate, and the resources they throw away. With work made strictly with materials recovered from Portland's Metro Central Transfer Station—aka the dump—this residency is a true experiment and honoring of contemporary art in our city. Come and celebrate this new work with the artists that made it all happen!
