Linda Fernandez's work examines the ways in which everyday materials can be transformed into objects with a renewed purpose. Thus providing a recycling service while creating another vantage point to view, and analyze materials and materialism. She developed this body of work in 2009 while living in Nicaragua. Her primary materials for creating visual works of art transformed into what was available such as soda cans, plastic bottles and plastic bags. She began to use these materials to create bags, jewelry, and textiles. 2 years later, after returning to Philadelphia, she began to develop a series of projects related to food, health, and nutrition. Her work gives new life to the detritus of the street and raises awareness of the need to reduce, reuse and recycle.  

Originally from Indiana, Anne Harrison doubled majored in Art and International Studies at her Midwestern liberal arts college, leading her to community based arts. Anne landed in Philadelphia in 2000 where she has been managing community arts programming at Congreso de Latinos Unidos, Fleisher Art Memorial and the Mural Arts Program, while also making and showing work, and picking up new skills, techniques and ideas along the way. Anne is committed and dedicated to the access and advocacy of the creative practice for everyone.
