Your chance to support local charities and artists and pick up a couple eco-art creations is almost here.

Join local nonprofit organization Women in the Environment’s inaugural eco-art show, Art With RePurpose™—An Eco-Art Show, starting at 4:30 p.m. on September 12 at Visit Addison Gallery and Artisan Center.

This environmentally-friendly show will feature 14 local artists who “utilize recycled, up-cycled, repurposed, sustainable materials” to craft their eco-art or creations.

Not only will you get to ogle their creative and resourceful pieces, but you can take some home, too.

Works that will be available for sale include wall art, décor, collectibles, jewelry and possibly locally-produced organic goods (this is still a question mark for the event), such as soaps, lotions and other products.

This art show isn’t complete without “green” drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Guests will get to enjoy a selection of sustainable wines and organic appetizers and snacks.

Guests will also have the chance to win gift baskets; spa, restaurant or event certificates; and much more in the small Silent Auction.

Women in the Environment created this art event with aspirations for it to become an annual “Signature Fundraising Event.”

Women in the Environment is “a group of dynamic women who are conquering the challenges of the environmental industries.” They strive to “empower women in the environment field through education, encouragement, outreach and networking.”

Some of the industries these women represent are environmental law, recycling companies and co-ops, sustainable building and remodeling, environmental engineering, landfill diversion techniques and sustainable marketing.

All proceeds of this show will benefit Women in the Environment and Girls, Inc.—Tarrant County, a nonprofit organization with a purpose of inspiring girls to be “strong, smart and bold through life-changing programs and experiences that help girls navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.”

Considering that September is self-improvement month, taking part in a charity-focused event where guilt-free art, products and food take center stage should be a no-brainer.
