Red Cliff Gallery SUAG
220 N 200 E, St. George, UT

Hosted by: Arrowhead Gallery ETC

The Trash Art Show is back on! This means you and your family can make a real difference in your community by going around and picking up trash that can be recycled into an art project. So while your out hiking, walking, bike riding and enjoying the weather, pick up some trash and make a piece of art out of the recycled garbage you found.
Southern Utah Art Guild, Arrowhead Gallery, and Red Cliff Galleries are participating in a sponsored art project (Ron Woodbury Consulting, Inc. is our sponsor for this project) to help clean up the area and maybe even win a prize.

September 7th, 2020 – September 19th, 2020
You can help clean up your neighborhood and local parks by collecting recyclable debris around town. Show pride in your community by challenging your friends and family to clean up the community and create a piece of art out of the recyclable items you gathered. You can enter your artwork into a judged art show. Winners will receive prizes in various categories.

The challenge is to gather friends, neighbors, cousins, families and go out into our community, parks, hiking trails and clean up the debris. Have fun with this and let’s show our neighbors and especially the visitors to this beautiful area that we are proud and care about the earth. When you start looking, you will be shocked by the amount of garbage and debris that is left by people. It is suggested that you carry two bags with you, one bag will be used for items that are recyclable and can be used in your art project, the other bag for items that are non-bio-degradable, hazardous, chemicals, or other materials that would/could cause health issues. We strongly suggest using gloves during your collection. Be creative in your art pieces, don’t just paste the “stuff” on a canvas/board and call it “trash art.” We want to see something we can recognize, something creative and fun.
