deja vu poster 2019

Leave it to an artist to see the beauty in worn leather coats, mismatched silverware, broken dishes, and old sweaters. These are just some of the materials artists have repurposed to create work for the Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show. The event will take place at The Commons in Columbus, Indiana from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 9th.

This year marks the fifteenth time the Déjà Vu Art and Fine Craft Show has been presented, and 60 professional artists from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio are participating. Many of the show's participants are members of prestigious organizations such as Indiana Artisan or the Louisville Artisans Guild.

First time exhibitor Dr. Randall LeDuc is this year's Featured Artist. A medical doctor living in Dillsboro, Indiana, he creates metal art such as lamps, tables, and figures. Some of the materials that he repurposes include old cameras, typewriters, sewing machines, machinery parts, and ice skates. Dr. LeDuc donates all sales proceeds to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic.

Work in this year's show includes jewelry, sculpture, weaving, wearable art, woodworking, mosaic, and glass art, all created from scrap materials or items that have been repurposed. A few years ago, a new category was added to recognize artists who use sustainable, natural materials to create their work.

Sponsors of the event are the Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District, Columbus Area Visitors Center, First Financial Bank, Kroot Corporation, and the Lincoln-Central Neighborhood Family Center, with additional support from Bucceto's, Hotel Indigo, and Papa's Deli/Papa's Grill.
