Historic Ritz Theater exhibits local and k-12 student artwork

Hosted by Golden Isles Arts and Humanities and Co-sponsored with Keep Golden Isles Beautiful, local artists and students “created imaginative visions and unique objects” in every medium using discarded materials in the Re/Up-Cycled Art Exhibit.

The exhibit is showcased at the Historic Ritz Theatre in downtown Brunswick.

Walking through the exhibit will inspire the minds of the young and old alike.  The artists were able to give new life to materials that seem to have no use anymore.

Many of the artists used various mediums to convey a message they were passionate about and that message showed through vividly in the artistic creation.

One such creation was by artist Jasmine Colver, an 11th grade student at Brunswick High School.  All on Georgia- Glynn spoke with Jasmine to discuss the inspiration behind her art sculpture.

Jasmine said that she had been inspired by a piece of art that raised an awareness for mothers not to drink alcohol while they were pregnant.

The artwork had a bottle of alcohol attached to an umbilical cord.  She was so inspired by it that she wanted to create something that also had a strong message and represented anti-bullying or anti-abuse.

Although not a victim of abuse herself, Jasmine found passion in her message and created a sculpture of a bloodied and bruised faceless bust named “Steven”.

Kelly Hunter, Associate Director of the Golden Isles Arts and Humanities said the art exhibit by the k-12 students is just one of the many programs that they offer the community.

In addition, there are many camps they are offering this summer for the kids of all ages.  A list of the camps can be found on their website here.

The opening reception began during First Friday and the exhibit will be up through April 27th Tuesday through Friday 9-5

Check out the video highlight of all the artwork at the exhibit.
