It’s Saturday morning in northwest Atlanta, and I’m standing in a warehouse with a middle school art teacher admiring the aesthetic qualities of a loading pallet.

“You see that pallet?” Cherokee County teacher Catherine Woodruff asks, pointing across the room, “It looks like an art piece all by itself.”

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure … or in this case, another person’s art supplies. This past weekend, a partnership of architects and interior designers held a sort of rummage sale with that intent.

The two shows are being produced together with a theme of "Speaking Truth To Power." They run in repertory Aug. 9 — 20 at the Out Front Theater.
