At the Show - Exhibits

With great charm and presence, this week's exhibits focus on the art of "grunge" and a "worn away" by time look. The exhibitors have proudly transformed new woods and other materials so that they appear old and weathered. They have created aged peeling paint, simulated rusted metal surfaces, and added lots of grime and grunge for a rundown look.
