(Chicago) The EC Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Connie Noyes "poignant trash". An opening night reception will be held at the EC Gallery, 215 N. Aberdeen, Friday, September 10, 2010, 6-8 pm.


poignant trash 

is a search for value,

in the mundane.

it is a metaphor for

the discarded.

the dismissed.


poignant trash 

uses utilitarian materials, 

never considered beautiful. 

in the same space,

it layers information, of

give and take. 


poignant trash 

changes the playful 

into the grotesque, 

upon close inspection, 


the dirty and damaged

into the delicately beautiful. 


poignant trash,

though often ignored, 

is on daily view.

look more, see more

it vies for emotional appeal.

a glance away. 


poignant trash 

is waste 

elevated in prestige.
