Art exhibition

The first annual art exhibition in aid of the JBay Recycling project was held on the 23rd of September at JBay BruCo. Some 80 artworks were submitted by artists from as far afield as Argentina, and sold at a blind auction on the night. The theme of the art exhibition was “the testimony of food” and artworks ranged from beatifully decorated cakes to paintings, photographs and sculptures. The blind auction worked very well with some exciting bidding being done. Over 100 guests attended the exhibition, and were treated to tasty snacks provided by JBay Bru Co. The art exhibition raised a total of R20 000.00 for the JBay Recycling Project. The exhibition not only gave local artists a platform to exhibit there artistic talents, but gave people an opportunity to purchase the artworks for a reasonable price.
All the money raised on the evening will go towards stocking the “shop” at the JBay recycling project.
The JBay Reycling Project would like to thank everybody that donated their time, art, money, services and good will to make this evening such a success.
