Arts Council of Beaufort, Port Royal, and the Sea Islands in Beaufort, SC, Features Works by Ragtime

The Arts Council of Beaufort, Port Royal, and the Sea Islands in Beaufort, SC, will present the exhibit, Not Just Giving Peace A Chance, But Bringing It Back In Style, featuring works in stained glass by the artist Ragtime, a Marine Corps Vietnam veteran, on view @ ARTworks gallery from Sept. 2 through Oct. 31, 2011. A reception will be held on Sept. 2, from 6-8pm.

This gallery show and sale is one man’s quest to share a vision of life without war. Ragtime, a stained glass artist living near Berkeley Spring, WV, began his “Points of Peace” in the fall of 2006. As a combat marine who fought in Vietnam, this work is his contribution to the effort to create a more caring world free from war. Each piece is a unique creation intended to remind everyone of the spirit of peace and is part of a numbered and cataloged series limited to 1000.

“I am placing my love and understanding on a positive course so that all who come in contact with these peace signs will experience a feeling of love, hope and family, and together we will journey towards a more peaceful earth. Imagine, a world free from hate and the senseless need to control other human beings,” said Ragtime.

The medallions combine the universal symbol with glowing kaleidoscopic colors, and, variously, images of fighter jets, palm trees, Buddhist wheels, fire, and of course Semper Fi.
