Eclectic Live to Showcase the Talent and Artwork of UWG Students

Thursday, September 26, 2013

The University of West Georgia College of Arts and Humanities School of the Arts presents Eclectic Live, an on-stage version of the award winning art and literary magazine entirely produced by UWG students. This free and public event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. at The AMP at Adamson Square in downtown Carrollton.

“Eclectic Live provides a unique opportunity for UWG students to interact with the community and allows students a chance to perform for a live audience in a great setting,” said Dr. Katherine Chaple-Borton, UWG advisor to Eclectic Live. “This kind of event continues to establish connections between the surrounding community and the university, a relationship that can only enrich both entities.”

This celebration of the arts will offer performances ranging from the marching band to poetry readings. An “Aha Center” featuring a number of hands-on art experiences for children will also be available.

“Our students are talented, and they put on great performances,” said Chaple-Borton. “Anyone in the audience this coming Saturday night can expect to be impressed with these students’ craft and art. There’s a lot of hard work, practice and late nights that go into the final products. These students make it look easy. The audience will be entertained, no doubt, but they will also leave inspired and impressed. These folks deserve to be showcased, and I really am thrilled that they’ll get such a great audience.”

Money raised will help fund scholarships, study abroad and research opportunities for our amazing students. For sponsorship information or to reserve a table, call 678-839-5453 or email rhendric@westga.edu.
