Shell Sculpture by: Lauri deGaris
Using shells found in the sand and the beach as a canvas, we create works of art that honor our natural and cultural resources. Seashells have been highly prized and collected for thousands of years. Seashells represent rebirth, regeneration and rejuvenation. Our beaches are made of highly energized quartz sand. Combine energy from the sand, seashells, salt water, oceans sounds and you have the recipe for peace of mind. Join us for Beach Art fun!
Right Whale Shell Mosaics
Our largest public art project celebrates the arrival of North Atlantic Right Whale mothers along our coast. Starting in December, whales appear off our shores to give birth. They will remain in our area for up to 4 months. We plan to celebrate Right Whales and the gifts they have provided to humanity over the centuries, by creating a life size mosaic out of oysters shells. This gift of art is designed to help raise awareness about the plight of the highly endangered North Atlantic Right Whale. Locals and visitors, young and old, can participate by collecting oyster shells from the beach and bringing them to the event. Our next community project is scheduled for Saturday, December 28th, 2019. We will gather in St. Augustine, Florida to create another whale shell mosaic. The exact location will be announced soon. Start collecting shells now and join us at the beach to help create this wonderful tribute to whales.
