The Bright Ring Foundation, a non-profit organization made up of many talented individuals who volunteer their time and energy to help artists and craftsmen, curated the exhibit.  The Foundation’s mission is to offer education and tools needed to enhance earning potential, identifying both traditional and non-traditional income sources for the artists and to educate the public about the value of arts and crafts in our culture.

A variety of artwork can be purchased through the Callaway Discovery Gift Shop.

The exhibit is available now through June from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Admission to Callaway Gardens is $20 per adult; $10 per child ages 6 to 12. Children age 5 and younger are admitted for free.
