An old beauty-parlor chair reupholstered with colorful duct tape, flowers made from cut and hammered tin cans, and a trashcan made from an oversized mailbox are just a few of the treasures found at Re•Funk•It.
The Ashland art gallery and showroom is centered on "the idea of reusing what we have and repurposing it in a way that's accessible," says co-owner Christiane Riederer. On Sept. 22, she opened the gallery with friends Lisa Funk and Wendy Doyle in the old Southern States Cooperative building at 120 Hanover Ave. Eventually, the trio hopes to host community art classes and events.
