Dee Pitchon is an artist that has been with the Recycled Arts Show since its inception in 2012. Dee makes jewelry and wind chimes from recycled pieces found almost anywhere. She believes in the collaboration of new and old and the importance of reclaiming something before it ends up in the landfill. Dee will be displaying and selling her jewelry and wind chimes at the Recycled Arts Show.

You will be amazed at the variety of artwork; there is sure to be a style for everyone. Buy your tickets now, before they sell out.
