ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- Englewood artist Irmari Nacht will have her one-person art exhibit on display through Thursday, Jan. 28 at the Carter Burden Gallery in New York City.

"Saved" features works of art made from recycled books. The books are often painted, distressed, and cut.

Nacht’s art is in several corporate and public collections, such as AT&T, PSE&G, ADP, Newark Museum, International Museum of Collage, Mexico, Cleveland Institute ofArt, Rutgers University, Bowdoin College, Jimmy Carter Museum, and Yale Art Museum.

"I am very interested in recycling and look at discards as a wonderful opportunity to create something new. We are all affected by changes in the environment and are beginning to realize the need to recycle to protect our future," Nacht said in a statement. "I hope my books will increase awareness of these changes and will get people thinking about recycling, reusing, and repurposing."

The Carter Burden Gallery is located at 548 W 28th St.
