Rehoboth Beach VegFest 2017 will continue its weekend activities with an evening art show from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, June 10, at Gallery 50. Featured will be works by Dino and Dart, two Massachusetts-based artists whose art reflects their passionate involvement in life and protection of the planet. The Cultured Pearl restaurant is donating mouthwatering plant-based appetizers. Buntopia, a two-person band and a VegFest favorite, will be offering jazz/rock musical accompaniment for the evening.
Dino and Dart's work is known worldwide. As activists, they are committed to protecting and healing the planet. Bold, vibrant, multilayered, and complex, their artwork draws in the viewer searching for commonality of connection and meaning. One powerful source of inspiration is the mandala, a circular pattern that invites contemplation and creates energy with its colorful and imaginative imagery. They travel the world showing and creating their art, and Dino performs with his band IREPRESS, which he started as a neighborhood group in 1998. Their work is timeless and timely, a call to come closer and become involved in the art and in life. "The animals we meet we treat as family. We all must do our part in protecting Mother Earth," says Dino. The art of Dino and Dart is a perfect fit for Rehoboth Beach VegFest.
Buntopia is a two-person band: Colleen Orozco on vocals and Gary Lowenthal on guitar. They perform a wide range of music from rock to blues to jazz. Both are passionate activists who live their commitment to a plant-based lifestyle. Lowenthal is co-founder of Compassion for Animals. Buntopia will also be performing in the music tent at Rehoboth Beach VegFest during the day Saturday at Epworth United Methodist Church. Festival guests can ride the Jolly Trolley free from the Rehoboth Bandstand.
