Creative Expressions art benefit, concert slated this week

MILLEDGEVILLE — Consumers of Creative Expressions Studio hope to raise awareness about the music therapy program at the Life Enrichment Center during a benefit concert on First Friday.

Buffington’s in downtown Milledgeville will host the “Faces of Music Therapy” concert at 10 p.m.

“Besides the musical performance, there will be an art auction featuring donated artwork from community artists. We will raffle several items, including a free night’s stay at the Antebellum Inn, and gift cards from Blackbird and Buffington’s,” said Katie Whipple, creative arts coordinator and music therapist. “All proceeds will go back to the music therapy program. We’re hoping to get some sound equipment for our Somatron chair and some adaptive equipment for members in wheelchairs.”

Featured performances will be by music therapy students and music therapists, including Jimmy Helms, Sean Richardson, Miquel Garland, Sam Shanine, Grace Nichols and Sarah Scott. Special guest Alwaiz will also perform.  

“This is the first time Creative Expressions is having a benefit concert,” Whipple said. “It’s really great to have music therapy students involved and have the support of other music therapists in the area.”

Locals and visitors can stop by Digital Bridges prior to the concert from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday for a papermaking workshop with the performers.

“We will have our musicians on site to assist with creating and decorating the instruments, which are pocket-shakers,” Whipple said. “Then we will have a sing along jam to make music with the instruments.”

Creative Expressions’ gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, but will make an exception Saturday for its fifth annual Christmas Open House. An assortment of original, handmade artwork will be available for purchase from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Items range from $1 to $150, including paintings, pottery, folk art, photographs, jewelry and more.
