Save Our Shores @ Full Circle Gallery


"SOS: Save Our Shores" is a community exhibit in reaction to the Gulf oil spill. The show will be up from August 17th-August 28th with a closing reception on August 28th from 6:00pm-8:00pm. There will be a silent auction during the reception with all proceeds going to the artists of our community. This will be a great opportunity to pick up some amazing artwork and show your support for our talented community.
The goal of this show is to give artists and viewers a venue to express their different ideas, feelings and issues about the Gulf oil spill. In this way, we can learn from each other and work towards a positive solution to this tragedy. Gallery owner Mercedes Rodgers says, "With so many of us affected by this disaster, the Full Circle Gallery thought they would try to do something positive for the community." So far there has been an amazing response to the show with inquiries from New York to Brazil with questions about how to submit. This is going to be a dynamic show with a wide variety of mediums, concepts and styles on display.

During this show, Mercedes Rodgers will introduce her community project 
"Security Blanket", a conceptual quilt made from reused petroleum-based plastics.
