Hub City Empty Bowls’ Soup Day Takes Place in Spartanburg, SC – Sept. 29, 2018

September 19, 2018

The people have made pottery bowls all summer long. Now, Hub City Empty Bowls will host Soup Day on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, at Indigo Hall in downtown Spartanburg, SC, and a great many needy people will be fed for months to come.

Annually, Soup Day is the culmination of many people’s creative and hard work during the summer, making hand-shaped clay pottery bowls that will be used to raise money for local citizens who are “food insecure,” which is generally defined as “not knowing if you’ll have the ways and means for your next meal.” In Spartanburg County, about 40,000 people are food insecure.

Hundreds of people turned out for Hub City Empty Bowls’s three bowl-making sessions during the summer, producing hundreds of unfinished bowls. The members of the lead agency Carolina Clay Artists repaired, touched up, painted, glazed, and fired the bowls, making them ready for people to donate $20 per bowl on Soup Day. In addition to getting a handmade pottery bowl to keep, patrons of Soup Day will also get to feast on about a dozen different soups that will be donated by the community’s finest restaurants. They will also get to bid on a silent auction, hear live music, and enjoy the fellowship of knowing they have done something that will improve the lives of others in Spartanburg. The money raised on Soup Day will be given to TOTAL Ministries, a faith-based agency in Spartanburg that helps local citizens faced with hard times. For each of the past two years, Carolina Clay Artists has donated more than $33,000 to TOTAL Ministries.

“This being Hub City Empty Bowls’s 10th anniversary, we are hoping for a historic turnout of people on Soup Day,” Chairman Bruce Bowyer said. “This is always the real test of people’s concern for others — to come out to Soup Day and get one or two or three or more bowls, and then enjoy themselves with a wonderful meal, music, and people who share their concern for others. Soup Day is so many things: heartwarming, creative, community minded, giving, grassroots, and most certainly fun. If you want to see how a little bit of effort can produce great results, come to Soup Day. It will change how you look and feel about those less fortunate.”

This year, the location of Soup Day will be in vibrant downtown Spartanburg at Indigo Hall, a special events venue. It will start at 11am and end at 4pm. The street address is 190 Ezell St. Ample parking for Soup Day has been secured by the organizers.

“We are very excited about our new location for Soup Day,” Bowyer said. “Everyone wants to be in downtown Spartanburg, and Indigo Hall is a wonderful space with lots of room for the bowls, the soup stations, the silent auction, and outdoor covered seating. I think people will really like this change. It will also be the location for a new pre-Soup Day celebration.

In preparation for Soup Day, TOTAL Ministries has secured soup and other food-related donations from the following restaurants and providers: Andre Nguyen, Hub City Co-op, Country Club of Spartanburg, Cribb’s Kitchen, Fatz Cafe, Garner’s Natural Foods, Gerhard’s Cafe, Lime Leaf, Carolina Country Club, Mon Amie, Moveable Feasts, Palmetto Palate, Renato’s In Centro, Southern BBQ, Sparks: Fire Inspired Grill, Sun King, II Samuels Restaurant, Le Spice Kitchen, Willy Taco, Delaney’s Irish Pub, Blue Moon Specialty Foods, The Beacon Drive Inn, Cakehead Bakery, LongHorn Steakhouse, Wade’s Restaurant, and Chick-fil-A.

The live music will be performed by David Giles and the RJ Rockers Orchestra (11am-1pm), Fayssoux McClean (1-2pm), and Roy McBee Smith (2-4pm).

The silent auction items will be fine art and other items donated by local artists, businesses, and concerned citizens.

The sponsors for the 2018 Hub City Empty Bowls campaign are JM Smith Corp., Allegra – Marketing • Print • Mail, Spartanburg Art Museum, West Main Artists Co-Op, Chris Williams, and Kohler.

“It takes a lot of community support to make Hub City Empty Bowls come together,” TOTAL Director Traci Kennedy said. “This is a truly grassroots fundraiser that is supported by some really great local businesses and individuals. We give them our sincere appreciation and want the community to know about their generosity.”

Hub City Empty Bowls is Spartanburg’s version of Empty Bowls, a worldwide fundraising effort that has hundreds of communities participating in similar but different ways and independently of each other. There is no global central control, administration, or oversight agency. Empty Bowls is a concept that normally inspires volunteer clay artists to make pottery bowls that are used to raised money to feed the needy in the local community. It is grassroots project that uses creativity to generate funds. Most Empty Bowls projects find ways to make pottery bowls and use them to host a fundraising event, such as Spartanburg’s Soup Day.

“And every day when you look in your kitchen cabinet for a bowl,” Bowyer said, “you’ll see your own personal Empty Bowl, and you’ll be reminded that someone out there is having a meal — just like you — because of you.”

September 19, 2018

The Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, SC, announces For Freedoms Town Hall: Freedom of Expression – Arts and Justice, a free event in participation with For Freedoms’ 50 State Initiative, on Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, at 6:30pm.

Following the panel discussion, attendees are encouraged to “talk back” with a response wall and to visit the voter registration booth to learn how their voices can be heard this November.

Featured speakers include Nikky Finney, Chad Henderson, Kathleen McDaniel, and Shaundra Young Scott, with Aparna Polavarapu serving as moderator.

Nikky Finney is the John H. Bennett, Jr. Chair in Creative Writing and Southern Letters at the University of South Carolina. She has authored four books of poetry, the last of which won the 2011 National Book Award for poetry.

Chad Henderson is the Artistic Director of Trustus Theatre in Columbia. As a professional theatre artist, he has directed dozens of professional productions at venues across South Carolina.

Kathleen McDaniel is a founding partner in the law firm of Burnette Shutt & McDaniel. She focuses on administrative and environmental law.

Shaundra Young Scott is the first African American female executive director of the ACLU of South Carolina. She concentrates on the civil liberties of individuals within the state of South Carolina, including but not limited to racial justice, criminal justice, women’s reproductive rights, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, and youth justice.

Aparna Polavarapu is a professor at the School of Law at the University of South Carolina. As part of the Rule of Law Collaborative, she focuses her research on the rule of law and human rights.

For Freedoms is a national platform for greater engagement in the arts and in civil society. Inspired by Norman Rockwell’s 1943 paintings of the four universal freedoms articulated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—For Freedoms seeks to use art to deepen public discussions of civic issues and core values, and to clarify that citizenship in American society is deepened by participation, not by ideology. The CMA is participating in their 50 State Initiative, which models how arts institutions become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism during the lead-up to the midterm elections.

Doors open at 5:30pm. Discussion at 6:30pm. Free. Cash bar.

On our cover this month is a work by Tom Dimond, which is from the exhibit, “50/50 Gold ’68 – ’18 The Art of Tom Dimond and Terry Jarrard-Dimond”, on view between Sept. 7 through Oct. 25, 2018, at Anderson Arts Center in Anderson, SC. A reception will be held on Sept. 7, from 6:30-8:30pm. The exhibit features over 150 works from five decades from this husband and wife team. In honor of the team Carolina Arts is presenting it’s first ever back cover featuring work by Terry Jarrard-Dimond. We love both works but chose Tom’s for the front cover due to a little more splash of color. At least that was my argument – we’re a husband and wife team here too.

So download that PDF and dig in – it makes for good reading and shows that you have lots of opportunities to enjoy the visual arts in the Carolinas. And, don’t forget to find a way to thank our advertisers – they make this publication possible.

Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail in Upstate, SC, Expands Again

August 30, 2018

233 FLOWERS AMONG FRIENDS

Flowers Among Friends – a series of four small floral-themed quilt blocks – grace the front pillars of Westminster’s historic Moon’s Drug Store. Beckie Harper DeFoor, Kathy Collins Smith and Jerry Smith sponsored these lovely blocks to commemorate their lifelong friendship of fifty years. The blocks are reproductions of four quilt squares included in Beckie DeFoor’s original quilt of the same name, a quilt she made to celebrate their special friendship. Inspiration for Beckie’s quilt came from several small embroidery pieces included in Laura’s Fantasy Flowers. Local quilter and instructor Cheryl Keith edited and digitized the designs for computer assisted embroidery. The warm, sunny color scheme of oranges and yellow against a black background add of a touch of folk art to the facade of Moon’s Drug Store founded in 1901. The four blocks were painted by Beckie DeFoor, Kathy Smith, and Kathy and Jerry’s daughter Whitney Jones with the help of Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail’s Production Team.

223 DOUBLE WEDDING RING

The Nix family has lived in the Six Mile area for generations. The house and barn on the property now owned by Dean & Jennie Nix dates back to 1911. Dean’s grandfather was a blacksmith, and he and his wife, Clara had three sets of twins. James, their son, and his wife, Pauline bought the farm from his parents in 1950 and cared for Clara until her death.

The quilt dates back to the 1920s to 1930s, and was pieced and machine quilted, most likely by Bette Alexander, Pauline’s mother. The fabric used in the quilt is unusual for a Double Wedding Ring in that it consists of only two colors, red and grey. It appears to be of fabric referred to as Sea Island cotton, a fine cotton hand-spun and woven, the bright, red color most likely was hand-dyed as well. It is hand stitched on the finished quilt with threads taken from old flour sacks, proving not only the thriftiness of this family, but also how the art was handed down from generation to generation. It is believed that Pauline and her sisters were likely involved in learning how to quilt as children by hand stitching the flour sack threads!

Jennie and Dean Nix are now the owners and keepers of the family farm. The quilt is installed on the old barn, that can be seen across the farm’s field from the road. Jennie continues to carry on the rich tradition of quilting in the family and hopes to have one of her beautiful quilts transformed into a quilt block on the property soon.

The barn and painted quilt block are located at 1281 Mile Creek Road Six Mile, SC.

Native American Studies Center in Lancaster, SC, Announces Fall Artist-in-Residence

August 30, 2018

Traditional artist Beckee Garris will appear at USC-Lancaster’s Native American Studies Center as Artist-in-Residence through December, demonstrating pottery and basket making techniques and sharing Catawba oral histories and traditions.


Beckee Garris

A member of the Catawba Indian Nation, Garris will alternate weekends making pottery and two different types of basket forms from reeds and long leaf pine needles. Garris, who was first introduced to pottery making by her grandmother, says her art forms are inspired by her ancestors.

“I’m in a long line of Catawbas who have made pottery,” said Garris. “Here at the Center, it shows how the pottery tradition can be traced back 6,000 years and I don’t want to be the link that makes it stop.”

Garris will be at the Center select Fridays and Saturdays during late summer and fall, appearing Aug. 31- Sept. 1 from 10am-4pm. Other residency dates include Sept. 14-15, Sept. 21-22, Oct. 12-13, Oct. 26, Nov. 9-10, Nov. 16-17, Nov. 30- Dec. 1, and Dec. 14- 15.

On Saturday, Oct. 27, Garris will demonstrate at Kershaw’s Stevens Park Nature and Art Day in the Park from 11am-1pm and from 4-8pm at the Center as part of the City of Lancaster’s Boo Fun Fest.

Garris also will demonstrate her work and present a gallery talk at the annual winter Native American Art and Craft Sale, from 9am to 4pm at the Native American Studies Center on Saturday, Dec. 1.

Dr. Stephen Criswell, Director of Native Studies, says Garris is the epitome of the teacher who is always learning.
“Beckee Garris is one of the first traditional artists that I met when I moved back to the Carolinas 20 years ago,” said Criswell. “In that time, she has honed her pottery-making skills, become a talented basket-weaver, and has always been a gifted storyteller. We are thrilled to have her as our fifth artist-in-residence, and we are grateful to the SC Arts Commission and the USCL administration for their support.”

Garris’ residency is made possible through a 2019 South Carolina Arts Commission Folklife and Traditional Arts Grant.
