Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC, Offers Spring Tour of Homes – Mar. 7, 2015

February 28, 2015

burroughs-chapin-logo-grass

Six unique Myrtle Beach, SC, homes in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary will open their doors on Saturday, Mar. 7, 2015, for the 15th Annual Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum Spring Tour of Homes.

215bur-chapin-house-tour

Tour hours are from 10am- 4pm. Tickets for the event are $40 in advance, $45 the day of the tour. A buffet luncheon at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club accompanies the tour. Tickets for the luncheon, served from 11:30am-3pm are $18 per person (for Tour ticketholders only.) Reservations are required and can be made through the Art Museum, call 843/238-2510.

Besides displaying lots of eye-popping design details – some of which are sure to provide inspiration for visitors’ own homes – the tour serves as the Art Museum’s major fundraiser. This year’s tour includes:

The Cline Home, 26 Center Drive, Briarcliffe
“Southern Elegance” sums up this contemporary home, in which despite some 6,000 square feet under roof, still manages to feel cozy and intimate. Maybe it’s the rich hues of the coffered ceilings, the dark-stained bamboo hardwood floors, the large collection of Lowcountry art or the comfy screened patio with massive stone fireplace — one of four in the home. Don’t miss the luxurious master bedroom and bath, tiled in gorgeous Travertine marble, and the temperature-controlled wine cellar — complete with wine-themed art.

The Nardslico Home, 7900 Beach Drive
It’s hard to believe that this spacious beachfront beauty was once a plain-Jane 1970s block-style house. While keeping its original footprint (five bedrooms, six baths and 3,800 square feet), the owners raised the roofline to dramatically change the interior space, adding Travertine tile floors and whitewashed ceiling planks to create a light and airy feeling. Closets were removed to become shower “rooms.” Note the custom cabinetry, made from both new and old wood; the staircase with dramatic octopus sculpture by local artist Robert Sadlemire; the hand-painted wall and ceiling murals; the huge upstairs rec room (with pool table), and the pool area at rear complete with spa, hammocks — and an ocean view that goes on forever.

The Pegram Home, 322 Wildwood Dunes Trail, The Dunes Club
This one-story ranch was extensively remodeled in 2014 to reflect its owners’ lifestyles; its approximately 5,500 square feet include a main house for an older couple and a separate suite for their adult daughter. Its eclectic style incorporates contemporary and traditional furnishings, antiques and family heirlooms. Animal prints on chairs and throw pillows echo a prized zebra-skin rug in the living room; Chinese sculptures, screens and wall panels recall the owners’ foreign travel. Don’t miss the antique Oriental rugs, including an authentic Persian Heris rug; the two Audubon prints and the Chinese silk panels in the dining room.

The Stewart Home, 36 Chapin Circle, The Dunes Club
The owners’ extensive collection of antiques seems right at home in this stately Colonial, built in 1987 but modeled on a historic house the couple happened to see — and fall on love with — while passing through Winnsboro, SC. Many of the pieces are not only historic but family heirlooms, including several exquisitely decorated secretary desks in near-immaculate condition, an authentic Persian rug in the dining room and a Japenese-made grandfather clock with mother-of-pearl inlays. But don’t miss such modern comforts as the dining room chandelier of Murano (Italy) glass; the stained-glass window in the master bathroom; the cozy dark-shuttered study and the inviting sunporch with its soothing woodsy view.

The Shane Home, 7846 San Marcello, Grande Dunes
La dolce vita! This elegant Italian Mediterranean has what it takes to indulge every mood, from its spacious interior — with 10 to 13-foot ceilings, four bedrooms and four baths in 4,500 heated square-feet — to the luxurious backyard pool area, with covered lanai, cookout cabana and outdoor shower. The state of the art kitchen includes its own wine pantry. And when it’s time to relax, head for the custom-built “theater room” with massive flat-screen TV.

The Serena Drive Home, 1563 Serena Drive, Grande Dunes
Soothing waters entice throughout this luxurious 4,500- square-feet Italian villa overlooking a shimmering golf-course water feature. Whether it’s the splashing tiered fountain in the driveway, the azure pool and spa beckoning beyond arched windows, the circular garden tub in the marbled master bath or the spacious pond views, this home whispers, “Water.” Rich woods abound in the tray ceilings, arched doors, exquisite cabinetry, detailed master closet and elaborate furnishings — the four-poster beds covered in brocades are fit for royalty! Be sure to take in the elegant chandeliers and lighting throughout, and note the extras in the second kitchen for outdoor dining, including a dishwasher and wine cooler.

Patron Sponsors are State Farm/Bobby Kelly, Agent; Supporting Sponsors are B. Graham Interiors, Babb Custom Homes, Living Beach and Swift Services Heating & Cooling; and Media Sponsors are EASY 105.9, Grand Strand Magazine, The Sun News and WBTW News 13.

Burroughs-Chapin in Myrtle Beach, SC, Offer Sculptor Binh Pho for Woodturning Demonstration – Dec. 7, 2014

November 22, 2014

burroughs-chapin-logo-grass

Visitors to the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC, will have just such an opportunity on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, when they will be able to view not only the exhibit, “Shadow of The Turning: The Art of Binh Pho,” but also to watch a demonstration by the artist of how he creates his work.

Pho will give a woodturning demonstration on the ground floor of the Art Museum from noon – 3pm, Dec. 7, 2014. The artist will demonstrate turning, piercing and airbrushing a thin bowl.  Members of the Wilmington Area Woodturners Association will demonstrate other turning projects such as a bowl, goblet, spinning top and pen.

Woodturning is defined as creating wooden objects on a lathe. The craft differs from other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it. Many intricate shapes and designs can be made by turning wood.

Woodturning is one of multiple media the artist uses to create his sculptures, which also include art glass and painting. Shadow of the Turning is presented as a fictional, myth-like story which is “illustrated” through Pho’s sculptures and paintings. Each work is a complex creation of delicate shapes and textures and intense colors, often multilayered, with a different view of the sculptures from every angle. Many open or turn to reveal a secret interior space or objects within, creating a sense of mystery in each object.

“I put a soul into every piece I create,” Pho writes in his artist statement. “I don’t make objects; I create characters. . . . Creating figurative and abstract imagery on delicately pierced wood vessels opens the doors for me to share my life and interests. There was a period of time that I looked through the window and asked myself the question, ‘What is it like on the other side of that window?’ I then just let my imagination go.”

Pho’s works are represented in museums and collections around the United States, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the White House Collection of American Crafts, as well as the Musée Art du Bois in Breville, France. His work has been included in dozens of exhibitions, including juried exhibitions, around the country; and he is a frequent lecturer in the art of woodturning in both the United States and Canada.

The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum is a wholly nonprofit institution located across from Springmaid Pier at 3100 South Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach.  Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm and Sundays, 1 to 4pm. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed.  Components of Museum programs are funded in part by support from the City of Myrtle Beach, the Horry County Council and the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

burroughs-chapin-logo-grass
The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC, is offering the public a series of free docent tours of “Classic Images: Photography by Ansel Adams”. The docent tours will be offered throughout the summer beginning this Sunday, June 22, 2014, at 2pm. The first tour is given by “The Sun News of Myrtle Beach” photojournalist, Janet Blackmon-Morgan.

Blackmon-Morgan has been a photojournalist with “The Sun News of Myrtle Beach” since 1997. A graduate of the University of South Carolina with a degree in mass communications, she has worked for six different newspapers as both a photographer and reporter, has won hundreds of press awards in photography and writing throughout the Carolinas and traveled with the Marines to cover conflict areas and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Her love for the works of Ansel Adams was at first sight. “Like all photographers, I’ve been a fan of Ansel Adams since the first time I saw the moon over the cemetery photograph. I fell deeper with the shots of the field workers at Manzanar and deeper still with the Aspen trees in New Mexico.”
