The ReGallery, in the Cedros Design District, is hosting an art reception that will take place from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, April 9. There will be Zimbabwe music featuring musicians from the Center for World Music, complimentary exotic middle-eastern food, beverages, beautiful recycled art, solo guitarist, and great people. Brenda Gipson, a sponsored artist, will be also be reciting the spoken word.

The event kicks off an educational and arts-related program with an African American theme, part of a series of programs centered on social justice issues. Young people, with special needs, will engage in art activities centered on this theme in preparation for an arts exhibition that will coincide with Black History month, February, 2012.

The program is made possible through the gallery’s partnership with the Living Kindness Foundation, which is a grassroots organization dedicated to philanthropy in action.

ReGallery features sculpture, fine art and jewelry “re-visioned, re-imagined and re-purposed” from salvaged materials. It also offers art workshops to young people with special needs and is located at 348 H S.Cedros Ave. Solana Beach. All are welcome to attend this free reception. Call 858-259-2001 or visit
