RE-UPcycled Art Exhibit

Details

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities and Keep Brunswick-Golden Isles Beautiful (KBGIB] are proud to present the Annual RE-UPcycled Art Exhibit at the Historic Ritz Theatre in downtown Brunswick. This exhibit, featuring imaginative works that turns "trash" into beautiful art treasures, opens with a free public reception during First Friday festivities on April 5th, from 5-8 p.m.

As in previous years, local artists and craftspeople, including local school children, create imaginative visions and unique objects in just about every medium using discarded materials.

"Up-cycled and recycled artwork not only channels creativity in generating pieces from items destined for the landfill, but also is a novel approach in tackling the issue of waste reduction," says Lea King-Badyna, KBGIB executive director. "KBGIB is excited to again partner with Golden Isles Arts and Humanities in this exhibit and contest that celebrates creativity and sustainability."

The art is judged and awarded first, second, third and honorable mentions in four age divisions based on creativity and best use of recycled materials.

In addition to the opening of the exhibit, The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is sponsoring a free screening of the documentary, Saving Sea Turtles/Preventing Extinction. The screening will take place at 7 pm and is a true story about people coming together to save the sea turtles we love.

The show continues through April 28th. Ritz Theatre Art Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., during performances and by appointment.
