If you've been in or even walked by the gallery you're probably familiar with William Rudolph's works, or Rudy as he's known, who creates his pieces out of bike parts. From belts to napkin holders, Rudy's best known for his amazing lamps. I've probably made you try turning one on and off because the gear shift switch is so satisfying. We're always getting new and fun works from Rudy, who also fixes and adjusts bikes for people with a range of different abilities, so come in and check them out if you're looking for something for your favourite cycling pal.

Up next we have our favourite tinkerer Ed Beals. It's hard to catagorize Ed's work because he's made just about everything from ray guns to robots to insects and more. Ed uses all kinds of repurposed and found items to create his pieces, and sometimes even his pieces are repurposers, like The Collector, who's carrying around his found objects in his removable backpack.

Ed's bugs made out of old silverware, pen nibs, keys and other found objects are pretty fantastic too.

Lastly we have glass artist Rachelle Paul of Looking Glass Design, who uses recycled glass from old windows and greenhouses in Nova Scotia to create her beautiful terrariums and other pieces. Rachelle's work is stunning and allows you to bring your favourite plants and other greenery indoors in beautiful ways.
