Helwig Gallery to Highlight Local Artists


CARROLLTON, GA – Local art non-profit and Georgia’s only dedicated creative reuse center SCRAP Bin announces the grand opening of the Helwig Gallery on Friday, February 27, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., with a dedication at 7:30 p.m. The inaugural show features ceramic work by Helen Helwig and metal sculptures by Joel Johnston. Guests will be treated to live music by Christian Montcriol as well as refreshments.


Named after SCRAP Bin founder and local ceramic artist, Helen Helwig, the Helwig Gallery will feature local artists with a special emphasis on creative reuse.


“Helen is a champion for the arts in our community,” said Lisa Matheson, executive director of SCRAP Bin. “The Helwig Gallery will recognize and promote local artists in much the same way she has done. We want to inspire people and make the arts accessible to everyone.”

The show featuring work by Helwig and Johnston runs through March 28.  Alan Kuykendall will be the next featured artist and his show runs from March 31 – April 25.


Artists interested in showing their work should visit SCRAPBin.org and complete the prospective artist form.  Artists’ work is sold on commission, and SCRAP Bin receives a portion of the proceeds to support its environmentally friendly creative reuse mission.


The Helwig Gallery is open during SCRAP Bin’s normal operating hours (Tuesday – Friday from 2:00  p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) and admission is free.
