FABULON, A Center for Art and Education, in Charleston, SC, Offers Book Signing for Photographer Andrew Feiler – Mar. 23, 2017

March 16, 2017

FABULON, A Center for Art and Education, located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, SC, will present a photography exhibit and book signing with Andrew Feiler, on Mar. 23, 2017, from 5-8pm.

Feiler’s book, Without Regard to Sex, Race, or Color: The Past, Present, and Future of One Historically Black College was published by the University of Georgia Press in association with the Georgia Humanities Council. The publication includes ten historical images, sixty contemporary images and essays by Robert E. James, Pellom McDaniels III, Amalia K. Amaki, and Loretta Parham. An accompanying exhibition opens later this fall in Atlanta, GA.

Feiler offers the following about the book, “A large bell hangs in the clock tower overlooking the now quiet campus of Morris Brown College (Atlanta, GA). Its inscription reads, in part, “Dedicated to the Education of Youth, Without Regard to Sex, Race or Color”.  Founded by African Americans in 1881, Morris Brown lost its accreditation to financial pressures and scandal in 2002. Today its largely abandoned campus stands as a testament to a proud past, a challenging present and an uncertain future, not only for this one institution but for all of America’s historically black colleges and universities.”

“I was granted unique access to the hauntingly silent campus of Morris Brown with the intent to illuminate the stories told in its stilled classrooms and hallways.  In the resulting body of work, the proud past remains in the extraordinary quality of the facilities, school desks arrayed ready for class, faces of students in photographs from happier days. The challenging present resides starkly in broken stained glass, evidence of havoc wreaked by scrappers, hints of homeless humanity. And the uncertain future weighs heavily in the headlines: bankruptcy proceedings, a forthcoming professional football stadium next door, recycled pronouncements of plans to revitalize the surrounding neighborhood. Mixed with all of these are layers of timeless emotion…. wistfulness, pride, angst, loneliness, hope.”

FABULON is located at 1017 Wappoo Road, West Ashley, Charleston.

A Visit to the Ever Changing Charleston, SC, 3/11/17

March 12, 2017

I needed some postcards to send to someone in Washington, DC, that I hoped would be soon taking an extended vacation from politics, and what better place to get postcards but the tourist city of Charleston, SC. The city that seems to add a new construction crane every time I visit. So I figured to also make that trip a short business trip and visit a few galleries.

I’ve been wanting to visit Fabulon, A Center for Art and Education,  located at 1017 Wappoo Road, in the West Ashley area of Charleston – between Hwy. 61 and Hwy. 17. They had just opened a new exhibit, “We The People”, an exhibit of artwork that makes you think, something not seen that often in Charleston. They had the opening a day before, but I don’t like seeing art in a crowd, so the day after was good for me.

This was a great show with art from local artists and many from outside the area. As usual I took a few images with my iPhone (I guess that’s less health insurance for me), but these works are best seen up close and personal. And as always works I include are not always the best or ones I want to talk about – they are the works I can get a decent image of. But I also like the ones I’m including.

First up is a photograph by Winston-Salem, NC, artist, Owens Daniels, who offered some images poking fun at the NC House Bill (HB2). This image titled “Citizen” was created in the style of American Gothic.

Next is “Life is A OK” by local artist, Caroline Self, who was/is Artist-in-Residence for The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department. Loved this work for it’s color and texture. I just can’t pass by a well executed abstract work.

Kelly Burke, from the Baltimore, MD, area offered a couple of works from her ‘Reimagined American Flags” series. This work is titled “Don’t Lives Matter?” highlighting lives lost due to gun violence.

Susan Irish, owner and manager of Fabulon, also had an interesting work in the exhibit that made a statement about Charleston, that only an outsider would understand – which I got right away, but I couldn’t get a good shot of it without my shadow all over it.

There are lots of interesting works in this exhibit, which will give you lots of reasons to think, but don’t miss the artistic skill in thinking of the message offered.

This last work wasn’t part of the “We The People” exhibit, but it caught my attention and of course it’s an abstract. It’s a work by Laura McRae-Hitchcock , who has recently moved from Charlotte, NC, to our community. So, besides the works in the show, there are also good works to see – and buy, on view by resident artists.

Fabulon may not be one of those high-end Charleston galleries, but it’s an example of all things good don’t always come in shiny packages, it’s also a working studio, classroom, and gathering center – there was a group of fiber artists on hand working away while I viewed the exhibit.

Well it was time to get my postcards which I found at Brittlebank Park on the Ashley River – not your usual place to get postcards, but I’m hoping you’ll be reading about and hearing about these special postcards on about March 16 or 17.

Next I stopped by Surface Craft Gallery,  located at 49 John Street in downtown Charleston, my old stomping grounds when Linda (my better half) and I operated a custom photo processing lab on John Street and a short lived photography gallery – many years ago. I wanted to talk with Liv Antonecchia, owner, and get caught up on how the new group, Lowcountry Ceramic Artists, was coming along and see what new things they had in the shop.

Here are some works by Margaret K. Weinberg, who is part of the Cone 10 Studios in Charleston, which may be closing soon.

Next are works by Batton Clayworks in Asheville, NC. They are the works with the carved texture. I loved these unusual shapes.

Here are a couple of fused glass works by Tanya Craig. These are incense holders, but I don’t remember seeing any that were so colorful – back in my days of burning incense. The last time I bought incense was about ten years ago just outside of Disney World in Florida, but when we got home – I couldn’t find them and to this day never have.

This last shot is of a jar by Fred Prudhomme, another Cone 10 Studios artist. I shared a Facebook post that Surface Craft had made earlier in the week which attracted a lot of remarks about how beautiful the jar was but it would be much better if it was full of cookies and then milk got involved and than more comments about food were added, but when I saw this piece in person, it was much smaller than we all thought. It was about half the size of a cookie jar. I still like the jar, but man I was really disappointed that you wouldn’t be able to fit many cookies in it. Again – here was a case where art had effected my life once more – beauty and disappointment offered in the same object. Darn you artists.

Surface Craft Gallery had become one of my favorite spots to see fine art crafts in Charleston. If you haven’t been there check it out.

Surface Craft Gallery will be opening a new exhibit, “Spring!”, a ceramics renewal show featuring local and national clay artisans in both functional and sculptural work, with an opening reception on Mar. 23, from 5-8pm. The show continues through Apr. 13, 2017. Work by Kelly Thiel will be featured in the show. She left us to live in Bend, OR, but now her work is returning to Charleston.

Well, it was time to head back home to Bonneau and as I drove out of Charleston down Meeting Street I just couldn’t believe how they are changing the skyline of Charleston – pretty soon you won’t be able to see the sky. So sad. I still love you Charleston, but now I know how the old timers felt and talked of their “lost” Charleston when I first got here in the mid 70s.

Hurricanes Have Victims, But the Media Hurts Many More

October 12, 2016

When a hurricane comes to an area, it leaves many victims in its path, but not all are wiped out of commission, but media reports of disasters can leave all in the path of their destruction. I learned this during Hurricane Hugo and I see it happening again during the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

I live 45 miles North-West of Charleston, SC, and had power until 11:30am Saturday, Oct., 8, 2016, when Hurricane Matthew had already come to the Charleston area and headed to North Carolina where it really did some of the worst damage in the form of rain and flooding in the US. I heard the weather folks tell us that Matthew could do more damage than Hugo in Charleston and then they went on to the next place the storm was headed. They never seem to follow up on anything but damage done. They’ll search and search until they can find that one place to stand in front of and show a huge tree down on a house or cars floating in water. They don’t come back and show what wasn’t harmed.

I feel sorry for those who suffered damage, those who are still suffering and those who may still feel damage from this hurricane. But this isn’t Haiti. Americans recover from damage much more quickly from tragedy and have the capacity to take a hit and at the same time help others.

I recently made a trip to downtown Charleston on Oct. 10, just a few days after the arrival of Hurricane Matthew and I was amazed at how little signs of damage was seen just a few days later – unlike Hurricane Hugo. Here’s a few notices I’ve received that represent pleas from folks who did not suffer damage from the storm, but don’t want people to forget them.

A Letter from Charleston, SC, from Hagan Fine Art Gallery and Studio, located at 27 1/2 State Street, in the heart of the French Quarter area of historic Charleston, SC.

Thank you for your calls and e-mails of support!

Dear Friends,

We’d like to give you an update on what’s going on in Charleston right now.  In general, we all feel very lucky to have homes and businesses to walk back into with little or no damage from Hurricane Matthew. However, there are many people here that are still struggling with no power and damaged homes.  Our pretty little State Street remained high and dry during the storm, and the gallery and paintings are all safe.  Our staff’s homes are all safe and standing. Some of us are still waiting on electricity, but we are all okay and very thankful. Most streets in Downtown Charleston that I’ve been on are dry and passable. Whew… we were spared.

We had just hung Dee Beard Dean and John Beard’s new paintings, when we heard the news of Hurricane Matthew’s approach. So we had to hurry and un-hang the show and store it safely away.  Dee and John’s Show and the Charleston Gallery Association’s Artwalk were cancelled and we covered everything in plastic.  It was an anxious time for everyone in Charleston.

Dee and John have been working on their show for many months, and it was (and still is) so very beautiful. It’s a really awesome thing to be witness to such a family of talent, inspiration and training by seeing these paintings in person and to know the artist who created these works so well.  We have found the paintings to feel calming, relaxing and soothing.

If you need a brief diversion from all the news of the Hurricane maybe you’ll enjoy looking at the paintings or this short video at (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyQLfsrNQtI&feature=youtu.be).

We wish you a speedy recovery if you’re dealing with the aftermath of the storm. If you need any help, please let us know. I have a car full of tarps and plastic, and I’ll deliver if you need them.

If you’re far, far away and you’re getting this – hopefully you’re safe and sound and you’ll enjoy looking and supporting these artists who have worked so hard for their show.  By the way, both Dee’s and John’s homes (as are they) are safe. We were anxious because they both are near the water and John actually lives on a boat in Florida.

If you see a painting you can’t live without, the gallery will extend free shipping on your choices through Sunday at 5PM and we will add a copy of Dee’s beautiful book with the purchase of any of her paintings.

Artwalk (the Charleston Gallery Association first Friday ArttWalk) has been rescheduled for this Friday, October 14th from 5-8pm. Please join us on Friday night in raising a glass to John and Dee and the invincible spirit of Charleston.

Warm wishes, Karen Hagan

Here’s a notice from the Franklin G. Burroughs – Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum, located at 3100 S. Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach, SC.

The Museum is Fine and Will Re-open Wednesday, October 12, 2016, at 10am.

If you saw the photos of the damaged Springmaid Pier and worried that the Art Museum was in the same condition – relax.  Aside from a few missing shingles and pieces of siding, the Museum came through Matthew relatively unscathed.  Power returned on Tuesday and we will open with regular Museum hours on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016.  We can’t express enough our gratitude to the City of Myrtle Beach for their help with our outdoor issues.

On exhibit is the “39th Annual South Carolina Watermedia Society Juried Exhibition”. Celia Pearson’s “Layerings: A Glimpse of Southeast Asia” will re-open shortly. The delayed opening for “Logan Woodle: Blessed Burdens” will be Tuesday, October 18th from 5:30 – 7:30pm, featuring a Gallery Talk by the artist.

If you have questions about any other events or the Museum itself, please contact us via our website at (www.MyrtleBeachArtMuseum.org), or by leaving a voicemail at 843/238-2510. We promise we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your support of the Art Museum, which is normally open Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm and Sunday 1 – 4pm, closed Mondays.

Don’t believe all reports by the media about these storms and don’t just write off whole areas that suffer some sort of damage. After the storm is when they really need your support. No one wants guakers but they also don’t want to be written off for a long period of time. Check with them to see if they’re ready to accept your visit. They’d love you to come see them – they need you to come see them.
