Upcycle, recycle, salvage, adapt and reuse. These approaches to art, design, architecture and really just about everything speak to a zeitgeist of environmental awareness and an aesthetic of resourceful uniqueness. For Liz Gordon, owner of legendary vintage-fixtures mecca Liz's Antique Hardware, harvesting the treasures from what other people throw away is more than a job, it's a vocation. So a decade ago, she hosted the first annual "Diverted Destruction" exhibition in the art gallery above her store. Beyond the joy of eccentric creativity, "Diverted Destruction: The Human Condition" features a sociological overtone, as a diverse group of women artists were invited to interpret "The Human Condition" through the double history of themselves and their found raw materials.
