Island Treasures on Jekyll Island, through February 28th

Every year, Jekyll Island commissions a group of highly skilled artisans from across the U.S. to create exquisite, hand worked glass floats for Jekyll’s annual Island Treasures event. The glass floats are part of a hide-and-seek style game played on Jekyll Island throughout January and February. Each day, volunteers called Beach Buddies hide clear globes around the island for lucky guests to find and redeem for a real glass float. Gather your friends and family to search for globes that can be exchanged for dazzling handcrafted glass floats.

RO3 Gallery X HSGS Present Lonely Hearts, February 25th-6:00pm-9:00pm

RO3 Gallery in collaboration with The Humane Society for Greater Savannah called The Lonely Hearts; An exhibition highlighting the Humane Society for Greater Savannah’s very own long term residents and adoptable dogs. This exhibition will be a great opportunity for an audience to view the Lonely Heart dogs of HSGS in a different light, and outside of the typical shelter environment as they become subjects for a contemporary art exhibition. This exhibition will feature over 10 dogs who have, since being surrendered, earned the title of ‘Lonely Heart,’ dogs who have been in the shelter for over 30 days and some up to 6 months. I will be photographing each dog at the shelter and then painting them on canvas, for their very own custom dog portrait. These portraits will seek to capture each dog’s personalities and charm, and offer a new and more dynamic way to view adoptable dogs; By being placed in a contemporary gallery setting.
During the exhibition reception, the Lonely Heart candidates will be on site at the gallery, monitored by HSGS volunteers, and available for adoption. If a Lonely Heart is adopted, the new parent will keep the custom dog portrait, displayed in the exhibition free of charge. The show will be up through the month of March and we are all looking forward to promoting the dogs of HSGS & HSGS as a whole in what they’ve done and continue to do for community.
