TODAY'S FOCUS
Downtown art galleries to feature openings in October
By VLADIA JURCOVA SPENCER
Special to CharlestonCurrents.com

SEPT. 24, 2009 -- October brings many exciting fine-art openings to Charleston Fine Art Dealers' Association (CFADA) member galleries. As the association (CFADA) celebrates its 10-year anniversary this fall, its member galleries will be putting on some of their best shows yet in conjunction with the French Quarter Gallery Association's Art Walk on Oct. 2.


Spencer

Beginning in October, Ann Long Fine Art will present "Toscana: Recent Work by Leo Mancini-Hresko." Toscana opens on Oct. 2 with a reception from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gallery at 54 Broad St. in downtown Charleston and will show until Oct. 31. The artist will be present at the reception.

Also in October, Carolina Galleries will presents new work from Stephen Chesley. The opening reception is also from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 2. Known across the Southeast for his fantastically moody, compelling and sometimes dark landscapes, Chesley is one of the gallery's most collected artists. Stephen Chesley's work is frequently likened to the palette and style of 19th-century Tonalist artists such as George Inness or his student Elliott Daingerfield. New works in oil will be on view for the month of October.

Corrigan Gallery is pleased to present works of artist Manning Williams in a show titled "Respecting the Past" that is made up of his early pieces. These works mark the path of his rise as a spectacular and notable Southern painter. These special jewels from his studio are sure to please and provide a timeline for his life's work. His work is legendary to many and includes his series of Indians and the series of landscapes, which often were gigantic. Trucks replaced the Indians and a series of narrative paintings tackling war followed those. The past 18 years of work based on cartoon format with abstract imagery still shows many figurative aspects and strong threads connecting these paintings to his earlier work and sense of composition. The opening reception for this show will be 5 to 8 p.m. during the Art Walk Oct. 2.

DETAILS

What: French Quarter Art Walk.

When: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 2.

Where: Art galleries in Charleston's French Quarter, the area bounded by South Market Street, Tradd Street, Meeting Street and the waterfront.

Details: The Art Walk is free and open to the public. Galleries will be featuring special exhibits and offering wine and food as well. Art Walks are held the first Friday in March, May, October and December. Maps are available at participating galleries.

More info: 722-1944 or online here.

The Wells Gallery looks forward to sharing its most avant-garde show to date by Sarah Ashley Longshore. Longshore's uninhibited, bold oil paintings are best described in her own words as "pop expressionistic." Guests will get a preview of Longshore's live streamed video blogs. You don't want to miss this one-of-a-kind show at the Wells Gallery. "Clever and bold," "shiny and fresh," are all words that come to mind when viewing her work, but above all, "confident."

Join Martin Gallery for a special evening dedicated to a brand new body of work by Montreal artist Joan Dumouchel. The gallery is pleased to announce that author Carrie Host will be present signing her book "Between Me & The River: Living Beyond Cancer, A Memoir." The gallery's newest artist, Wanda Steppe, will also be present.

The Robert Lange Studios will be moving to a new location at 2 Queen St. while mounting perhaps its most ambitious show since its gallery opening five years ago. Starting at 5 p.m. on Oct. 2, the anniversary of the gallery, artist Nathan Durfee will present "Thoughts Between the Sky and Sea." Durfee's popular original paintings, ink drawings, and sketchbooks will remain on exhibit through October. For the opening, Durfee has created more than 35 of these curious and whimsical works. Durfee's paintings will not be the only thing for patrons to enjoy; the massive 2,700-square-foot space will have new work from all 12 RLS artists, as well as some creative renovations and special touches.

Smith Killian Fine Art will feature painter Kim English and his wife, sculptor Andi Mascarenas, in their first joint show on the East Coast. Smith Killian Fine Art is located at 9 Queen St.

Founded in 1999, the Charleston Fine Art Dealers' Association promotes Charleston as a fine-art destination for avid collectors and passionate art enthusiasts and supports the artists of the future. CFADA has donated more than $140,000 to local high schools, the Gibbes Museum of Art, Redux Art Center and the Studio Art Department at the College of Charleston.

Lowcountry residents continue to be 'must-see TV'

By ANN THRASH, editor
CharlestonCurrents.com

SEPT. 24, 2009 -- It's getting to be a full-time job to keep up with all the local folks who are making a splash on national television - but it's a job we'll happily accept.


Thrash

The latest news is that Lowcountry entrepreneur Leslie Haywood will be appearing on the ABC program "Shark Tank" at 8 p.m. Sept. 29. Haywood came up with the idea for Grill Charms, a different take on the popular wine charms - those little doohickeys that you can attach to the stem of a wine glass at a party so you can tell your Cabernet from somebody else's Merlot. The Grill Charms help cooks keep track of whose grilled goodies are whose, so the person who wanted the mildly spiced chicken breast doesn't get the extra-spicy Jamaican jerk version instead (which is actually what happened to Haywood to spark the Grill Charms idea).

"Shark Tank" hasn't been on very long and we haven't seen it, but here's the deal: The show features five multimillionaires - "sharks" - who slaved away to make their own entrepreneurial dreams come true and turned their visions into bona fide financial empires. ABC's Web site says, "Mark Burnett, the man behind 'Survivor' and 'The Apprentice,' has brought these tycoons together in one room. Each week, ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country will present their breakthrough business concepts, products, properties and services to the panel of ruthless investors. Their goal: to convince these merciless moguls to invest - parting with their own hard-earned cash and giving them the funding they need to jumpstart their ideas."

An ABC promo for Haywood's episode says, "A housewife from Charleston, S.C., charms the male sharks." I'm sure that's a play on the Grill "Charms" - but since four out of the five sharks are men, let's hope it's also a good omen for our local favorite. We'll be watching Sept. 29 to see what happens.

The Holy City will also be in the spotlight the following night, Sept. 30. An episode of the Travel Channel show "Man vs. Food" that was filmed at Joe Riley Park in May will be hitting the airwaves that night at 10. Look for show host Adam Richman to tackle the Charleston RiverDogs' concession-stand colossus: the Homewrecker, an all-beef, half-pound, foot-long hot dog that comes with a choice of 25 toppings.

Here are a few more local folks who did Charleston proud on TV recently:

  • Robert Carter, executive chef extraordinaire at Peninsula Grill, was the "CBS Early Show's" Chef on a Shoestring last Saturday. Carter managed to make brunch for four for under $35 - and we're not talking Egg McMuffins here. Carter whipped up Southern Eggs Benedict (with country ham and creamy collard greens), Shrimp and Pimiento Cheese Grits, and even a mini version of the restaurant's celebrated coconut cake. Check out the video and get the recipes here on CBS News.

  • Two Charleston-based fashion designers are still sewing strong on "Project Runway" on the Lifetime channel. Carol Hannah Whitfield and Gordana Gehlhausen are among the 11 designers still in the running for the $100,000 grand prize; five fellow competitors have already been told "Auf Wiedersehen" by supermodel show host Heidi Klum.

  • Several weeks ago, a Saturday morning segment on the "Today" show featured City Running Tours, which has a local affiliate -- PrimeTime Fitness on Sullivan's Island. City Running Tours connects runners who are traveling for business or pleasure with fellow runners in five cities - New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas, and Charleston. The local runners serve as running partners and guides, giving mini-tours of the city, insights into local history and more. The "Today" segment focused mostly on New York, but it did show a group of runners trekking along the Battery, led by PrimeTime owner Meredith Nelson.

GOOD NEWS
Center for Women announces ovarian cancer outreach

The Center for Women will announce its newest program - Lowcountry Women with Wings, focusing on ovarian cancer outreach - at a press conference next week.

The announcement is planned for 11 a.m. Sept. 30 at Colonial Lake, at the intersection of Queen Street and Rutledge Avenue. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Representatives from a variety of local women's organizations will be on hand, as will ovarian cancer patients and survivors. Among the speakers will be Jennet Robinson Alterman, executive director of the Center for Women; Dr. Jennifer Young, a gynecologic oncologist at MUSC; and Veronica Walsh, an entrepreneur who survived ovarian cancer.

Lowcountry Women with Wings will provide online and individual resources for ovarian cancer patients, survivors and their families. The goal is to raise awareness of ovarian cancer by teaching people about the symptoms, demonstrating the urgent need for ovarian cancer testing and research and offering nonmedical support to the women who have been diagnosed.

"In 2008 the Center received a donation from ovarian cancer patient Terry Scharstein to develop a program that helps women battle the nonmedical issues, as well as the disease," said Alterman. "We are delighted to unveil our expanded Web site and outreach program, which includes a list of local volunteers who are offering their expertise gratis to assist with the nonmedical issues such as legal and financial considerations, as well as emotional and other support issues."

Every year in the U.S more than 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and within five years, 15,000 will be dead. The outreach program will include the distribution of ovarian cancer awareness information to every OB/GYN office in the tri-county area. The Francis Marion Hotel is underwriting this outreach effort.

For more information call 763-7333, ext. 202, or visit Lowcountry Women with Wings. The Center for Women is a nonprofit partner of CharlestonCurrents.com.

Drayton Hall to let history buffs help with excavations

The Drayton Hall historic site will hold its second annual Archaeological Institute next month, giving the public a rare chance to go behind the scenes at the property in a hands-on way. In the program, participants learn the skills associated with excavation, recording, artifact identification and laboratory work. The goal is to better understand the features of the 17th-century house located underneath the present Drayton Hall, such as a fortification trench associated with the earlier building.

"I learned from the experts things such as schnitting (a shoveling technique), sifting, and reading the soil for features," said one of last year's participants, Stan Younce of Charleston. "I was fortunate enough to be assigned to a unit next to the house, where I uncovered part of a wall from the house that predates Drayton Hall. What a thrill! I wouldn't miss this year's institute for anything."

Sessions meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, Oct. 27 through Nov. 7, and participants can register for fewer than the full 10 days if they wish. Space is limited, so early registration is suggested.

The cost for one to two days is $200 for members of the Friends of Drayton Hall or $250 for nonmembers; for three to five days, $350 for Friends members or $400 for nonmembers; and for the full 10 days, $500 for Friends members or $600 for nonmembers.

For more information or to register, contact archaeologist Sarah Stroud at 769-2637 or sarah_stroud@draytonhall.org, or director of preservation Dr. Carter Hudgins at 769-2617 or carter_hudgins@draytonhall.org.

Oct. 3 the deadline to register to vote in local elections

Voters in eight of the 16 municipalities in Charleston County will be going to the polls on Nov. 3, and county officials are reminding local residents that Oct. 3 is the deadline to register to vote.

Elections will be held Nov. 3 for posts in Charleston (City Council districts 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12), Isle of Palms (mayor and three council seats), Awendaw (mayor, three four-year council seats and one two-year council seat, as well as a ballot question), the town of McClellanville (mayor and four council seats), town of Mount Pleasant (mayor and four council seats), town of Ravenel (three council seats), town of Rockville (mayor and four council seats) and town of Seabrook Island (mayor and four council seats).

In an effort to create a uniform date for all municipal elections, the Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration asked each municipality to set the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November of each odd-numbered year as Election Day. "The percentage of voters who participate in these elections is typically very low," said Marilyn Bowers, the elections board's executive director. "We are hoping that allowing voters to vote on this uniform election date will create a larger turnout of voters to select the mayor and/or council member who represents them on the local level."

County officials advise residents to go to http://www.scvotes.org to check their registration information and make sure their name and address are accurate. The Web site will also tell you the location of the polling place for your precinct.

Absentee ballots are available at the Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office, 4367 Headquarters Road in North Charleston. Voters who will be unable to cast their ballot at their local polling location on Election Day can cast their ballot at the office during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays) through 5 p.m. Nov. 2. You can also request the ballot to be mailed to you by calling 744-8683 or by sending an e-mail to absentee@charlestoncounty.org. An application will be sent when your request is received, and the ballot will be sent upon receipt of the completed application. The last day to mail a ballot is Oct. 30.

Sample ballots for all elections may be viewed at http://vote.charlestoncounty.org.

HISTORY SPOTLIGHT
Russell's Magazine

Russell's Magazine was the last of the southern antebellum literary magazines and arguably the best. It should be credited for a desire to keep politics out of literary assessments, although in practice this objectivity applied only as long as slavery was not in any way attacked or "falsely" portrayed.

It was also the home base for two of the best poets in antebellum South Carolina, Paul Hamilton Hayne (its editor) and Henry Timrod, poet and critic. Russell's was the magazine of the professional middle class-lawyers, college faculty, and doctors. In Charleston the magazine had the support of two literary groups. The first, the Wigwam, met at William Gilmore Simms's town residence for little suppers, while the second and larger group met in John Russell's Charleston bookstore. They were confirmed conservatives, Charleston's most literary and literate professionals, and all males.

Hayne promised to publish "undiscovered genius" in the South, largely due to the reluctance of northern editors to publish southern writers. The only undiscovered genius, however, turned out to be Henry Timrod. George C. Hurlbut was added as assistant editor to help Hayne, but no one could solve either the financial problems or the political ones as secession and war drew nearer. At another time Russell's might have succeeded, but the clock had run too late. Its last issue appeared in March 1860.

Hayne did coax Timrod into writing his version of "What Is Poetry?" (October 1857), presenting a case for romanticism as opposed to the conservative taste for neoclassicism evidenced in the literary opinions of William J. Grayson, author of The Hireling and the Slave. The result was a version of the ancients versus the moderns and the neoclassicists versus the romantics that reveals much about the hesitancy of Charleston professional men to accept change in literature. It was, however, the works published by the South Carolina triumvirate of Timrod, Hayne, and Simms that distinguished Russell's Magazine.
