Eco-friendly pieces will show sustainability and symbiosis with nature.

Ten local artists will exhibit their skills in metal, pottery, wood and concrete during a garden art show 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at Sinkin EcoCentro.
Guests will have the chance to relax with live music and food while enjoying the local art.
Julie Cornelius, continuing education program coordinator, said the show is free and open to the public.
“We value the symbiotic relationship between nature and art,” Cornelius said describing the importance of the event. “We feel that art provides a window into the significance and fragility of the worlds natural resources.”
The exhibit will display art from recycled materials, large landscape-appropriate sculptures, yard furniture, bird baths, water and fountain art, mobile or hanging art such as chimes or animal habitat, and other examples of eco-friendly art.
“We wanted work that is sustainable in as many ways as possible,” Cornelius said.
Art will be available for sale during the exhibit and may range from $10 to more than $200, Cornelius said.
“One of the artists is a blacksmith and will be demonstrating how to make key chains and bottle openers,” Cornelius said.
The event, outside, will move inside the center if it rains.
Two food trucks will sell shaved ice and Greek food, she said.
“We’re also going to have a raffle for guests; artists were asked to donate a piece of their art with a $100 limit on the piece.” Cornelius said.
Donations are welcome, which will go toward the center and its educational programs, she said.
