The Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center and the Guadalupe Cultural Arts and Education Center present a new exhibit titled “Re-THINK Trash,” showing at both locations. The exhibit displays and highlights art made from recycled materials found in the Guadalupe-Nipomo dunes and local beach areas. The show premiers with a reception event on July 20 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Dunes Center and Arts and Education Center, which are next door to each other at 1065 Guadalupe St., Guadalupe.
The organizations put out a call months ago for a show of art that repurposes trash found on the local dunes and beaches. Each piece will include a short description of where the materials were found, how the artist made it, and the inspiration for the work. Many pieces will be for sale. The Dunes Center will also provide drinks and snacks, as well as a craft table for kids to make their own trash art.
The event is free and open to the public; donations are accepted. More information is available at 343-2455, firstname.lastname@example.org, and dunescenter.org.
