Featured Events, Spring Break Edition: Sustainable Works Opening, Commission Meetings, Kind Mama



For ninety days in 2012, environmentalist and educator Peter Kreitler walked the same one quarter mile stretch of Santa Monica Beach collecting flotsam and debris that floated in from the ocean or was left on the beach. Pieces of this collected trash were taken to his home where all was sorted, a portion discarded, much recycled and the rest saved, meticulously cleaned and catalogued.

A year and a half later the selected items were photographed by fine arts photographer John Reiff Williams. This photography will be on display at the EarthWe Gallery at Bergamot Station this Thursday evening. All art presented will be on sale with a portion of the proceeds going to Sustainable Works, a 501c(3) public charity.

Who: Peter Kreitler, John Reif Williams, Sustainable Works and the EarthWe Gallery

What: An evening of “wine, cheese and mind blowing art”

When: Thursday evening, April 17 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Where: EarthWe Gallery, Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Avenue
