Eco-artists at Engine

Tim Gaudreau's "Room of Trash."

BIDDEFORD — The Biddeford arts organization Engine will host “ECO-ART,” a presentation by Waldoboro artist Krisanne Baker and Portsmouth artist Tim Gaudreau, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 29, at 265 Main St.

The presentation will be followed by artists talking about their approach to creating their cardboard art for Engine’s current show, “MERC: Mainers Recycling Cardboard.”

Gaudreau is passionate about the environment and the interconnections between people and nature. His work combines photography, video, new media, graphics, and sculpture with humor and irony to create collaborations that advocate for a greater awareness of eco-issues and empowerment.

Baker's work as an ecological artist conceptualizes concern for humanity’s current unsustainable practices, particularly in relation to the vulnerability of water, from the local to the global.

Engine's current show, featuring works of art predominantly made from cardboard, calls attention to the need for an improved recycling rate in Biddeford. A portion of the material for the works of art was generously supplied by the Biddeford Recycling Center.

A donation of $5 is suggested.
