Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, has Gallery Artist, Louis Aliotta, Selected for SC State Park Artist in Residence Program

February 19, 2014

Photographer Louis Aliotta of Southport, NC, has been awarded a space in the 2014 Artist in Residence program of the South Carolina State Park Service. According to park manager, Harry Hafer, the placement committee was “extremely pleased with the quality of artists that applied this year. This quality made the final selection a tough decision for the jurors.”

The program includes a one week stay in a fully furnished park cabin on South Carolina’s Dreher Island, where Aliotta will be inspired by the nature trails, fishing spots, recreational activities and shoreline of Lake Murray.

Aliotta first became interested in photography at the age of 14. As a staff photographer for his high school yearbook and student newspaper, he gained experience shooting candid photographs, portraits, sports images and group photos. It was during this time that he began to study and work under master photographer John Freni.

After a stint in the Navy, where he served as photographer’s mate, he returned home to Poughkeepsie, NY, and spent the next five years working in commercial photography. Eventually losing interest in the commercial aspects of photography, he began working as a custom picture framer while he also pursued a more relaxed form of photography. Says Aliotta, “Custom framing exposed me to a variety of fine art and techniques used by artists and photographers. It really gave me the opportunity to experiment and refine my technical and artistic abilities.”

In 1983, Aliotta opened his own gallery and framing business, Framecenter/Hudson River Graphics. The gallery showcased photography of New York’s majestic Hudson Valley. After several visits to North Carolina, he relocated to Southport in 2005 and began a new portfolio of images that include the Cape Fear region and the Carolina coast. Aliotta is known for has panoramic photographs of harbor scenes, wild flowers and coastal images. In addition to photographing whatever moves him, he also photographs artwork at Sunset River Marketplace art gallery, where he has worked as the staff photographer and custom framer since 2007. Gallery owner Ginny Lassiter said, “Lou has a special eye for composing local landmark scenes that stand out both for their photographic quality and their emotional appeal.”

Photographic works by Louis Aliotta are on display at Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash (910/575-5999) and also at Art Shak Studo and Gallery in Southport (910/457-1757).

Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, Presents Iconic Historian Jack Thompson to Address Calabash Art Gallery – Apr. 11, 2013

March 31, 2013

sunsetriverlogo

On Thursday, Apr. 11, 2013, at 10am, Myrtle Beach historian, photographer and beloved local icon Jack Thompson, will make a presentation at Sunset River Marketplace as part of the Calabash, NC, art gallery’s Coffee With the Author series. His book, which is titled “Memories of Myrtle Beach: a Pictorial History of the Grand Strand Through the Eyes of Jack Thompson,” features over 175 Grand Strand images that take the viewer on a journey through the author’s life at the beach.

Originally from Greenville, SC, Thompson has been photographing Myrtle Beach happenings since he stepped off a bus and accepted a job at the Myrtle Beach Pavilion back in 1951. That was Jack behind the camera snapping “mug shots” at the Myrtle Beach Jail. He was there during the heyday of the Ocean Forest Hotel and he was there when it imploded. Last year the state of South Carolina recognized Thompson as the Official Chronicler of South Carolina’s Grand Strand and celebrated his birthday, Sept. 21, 2012 as Jack Thompson Remembering Myrtle Beach Day in Myrtle Beach.

Thompson admits to his love at first sight with Myrtle Beach. “ …She has an alluring charm about her … If you give in to her promise … she will cast a spell over you and fill your shoes with sand that will sweep into your blood and melt your heart. That’s Myrtle, she’s a lady and she has my number … and continues to call!”

During the Coffee With the Authors event, Thompson will discuss some of his famous images including the now defunct local Ocean Drive dance joint, The Pad; the implosion series of the Ocean Forest; and chronicling the city’s Sun Fun Festival through its 60-year run.

Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, Offers Gallery Talk with Art Appraiser – Mar. 14, 2012

March 5, 2012

If you have ever wondered what a piece of art is worth, if you’ve wished you knew what to look for when purchasing art or you have other questions about art appraisals, you might want to attend the next Creative Exchange presentation at Calabash, NC, art gallery, Sunset River Marketplace, on Mar. 14, 2012.

Professional art appraiser Amy Chapman from Columbia, SC, will explain what she does, how art is valued, and when a formal appraisal is necessary. She will also offer tips on proper storage and what to look for when buying art.

“I want to demystify some of the aspects of art appraisal,” says Chapman. I’ll be covering topics such as: Who needs to have an appraisal and why? What is involved in an appraisal? Why do appraisals cost what they do? Why are some things you can look at before you buy art or hire an appraiser? How can you keep your valuables safe from damage?

Chapman, who grew up in Myrtle Beach, SC, attended the Academy for the Arts, Science, and Technology where she studied advanced art. Since then she has explored the history and making of art, earning both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in art history.

Her personal art experience is in oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawing, jewelry-making, book-making and ceramics. Chapman has attended numerous courses offered through the American Society of Appraisers at Pratt Institute in New York, including: Personal Property Methodology-Research and Analysis, Personal Property and the Legal Environment, National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and Advanced Research Methods.

Chapman also studied with renowned appraiser Judith Vance and attended the 2010 ASA Personal Property Conference. She has experience gained from working with local art conservators Craig and Carol Crawford as well as art appraiser Sharon Campbell of Campbell Fine Art Appraisal. Chapman has owned and operated her business, Amy’s Fine Art Appraisal LLC since May of 2011. She is based out of Columbia, but travels throughout the state for her work.

Since opening in 2002, Sunset River Marketplace has become an active supporter of performing, literary and visual arts in the area. The gallery hosted Brunswick Arts Council’s Evening of Miniature Masterpieces fundraiser multiple times and is a Silver Sponsor for the Friday evening Summer Concert Series at Ocean Isle Beach.

Creative Exchange is an interactive community event held at Sunset River Marketplace. The gallery is located at 10283 Beach Drive SW (Hwy. 179) in Calabash, NC. Amy Chapman’s presentation on art appraisal takes place from 11am to 12:30pm, on Wednesday, Mar. 14, 2012. There is a $7 fee and lunch is included. Due to limited seating, reservations are required.

Sixty-five people attended the presentation. Cookbook sales during the Creative Exchange were $1,100.

“This Creative Exchange was especially significant for us,” said creative consultant and gallery owner Ginny Lassiter, “because 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will go directly to the nonprofit Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter, right here in Brunswick County.”

Cynthia Cheatham, development manager for the “Closer to Home” capital campaign to build the hospice facility, was one of those attending the Creative Exchange. She spoke briefly about the need for the local seven-bed care center and the importance of supporting the fundraising efforts at every level, “Every single dollar is helping us reach our $3.5 million goal.”

The 52-page spiral-bound soft cover book features 47 recipes, many of which have been served at various Sunset River Marketplace charity events and receptions. Others were provided by exhibiting artists and friends of the gallery.

Among those recipes offered for sampling were the gallery’s signature Baked Brie With Apricot Preserves, Holiday Pinwheels, Stuffed Dates, Chicken (or Crab) Cheese Dip, Salmon Cakes, Blue -Walnut Wafers, Mississippi Caviar, Asparagus Rolls, Broccoli Raisin Salad, Artichoke Dip, The Guys’ Favorite and Glazed Pineapple Kielbasa Bites.

After sampling, attendees voted the Chicken Cheese Dip, which had been prepared by Betsy Russell, as their favorite.

Lassiter says, “’Gallery Gals Appetizers!” makes an ideal stocking stuffer or hostess gift, and I know I’ll be giving some as Christmas gifts. We’re really happy with the cookbook. And I’m especially grateful for the local sponsors who contributed toward it:  Victoria’s Ragpatch, Calabash Garden Tea Room, Turtle Crossing Cupcakes, musicians Calabash Flash and Jim Quick & Coastline, artists Ramona Bendin and Babs Ludwick, Printing By Designs, Boom Boom’s Raw Bar, Icon Marketing, B. Russell Designs and – in the Lowcountry Shops – All About the Carolinas, the Yardbird Emporium and Bamboo Boutique.”
