Join ARTworks in Beaufort on Saturday, Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. for a celebration of the arts, an overview of the past five years, a peek into the future and a few surprises. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and watch artists working in their studios. The Bull Grapes will perform, and Beaufort artist Greg Rawls will reveal his Quilt of Humanity, a fused glass installation going to ArtPrize in Michigan this fall. The event is free to the public.
