The new bee hive was provided by the Bee Cause Project of Charleston, SC, through a donation raised by Coastal Montessori Charter School of Charleston, SC. The installation was coordinated through Brookgreen’s Creative Education Department to help raise awareness of the importance of honey bees as a major pollinator of not only flowers but many of our food crops.

 

“It is estimated that bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining the planet’s ecosystems,” said Ron Daise, Vice-President for Creative Education. “We are partnering with beekeeper, Tom Frances, to help educate make the observational bee hive interesting and informative.” Interpretive signage is planned for the new bee hive.

 

Brookgreen Gardens, a National Historic Landmark and non-profit organization, is located on U.S. 17 between Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and is open to the public daily. For more information, visit our web site at www.brookgreen.org or call 843-235-6000.

July 1 – Bronwen Dickey (Pit Bull: The Battle Over an American Icon) at Carefree Catering

With unfailing thoughtfulness, compassion and a firm grasp of scientific fact, the daughter of James and sister of Christopher explores how a popular breed of dog became the most demonized and supposedly the most dangerous of dogs – and what role humans have played in the transformation. When Bronwen Dickey brought her new dog home, she saw no traces of the infamous viciousness in her affectionate, timid pit bull. Which made her wonder: How had the breed – beloved by Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller, and Hollywood’s “Little Rascals” – come to be known as a brutal fighter? Her search for answers takes her from 19th century New York City dogfighting pits to early 20th century movie sets, from the battlefields of Gettysburg and the Marne, to desolate urban neighborhoods, culminating in a clear-eyed portrait of this extraordinary breed and an insightful view of Americans’ relationship with their dogs.

 

July 8 – Beatriz Williams (A Certain Age) at Kimbel’s, Wachesaw

We last met New York Times bestselling author of A Hundred Summers when she trio-ed with Karen White, and here she brings the Roaring Twenties brilliantly to life in an enchanting and compulsively readable tale of intrigue, romance, and scandal in New York Society, brimming with lush atmosphere, striking characters, and irresistible charm. As the freedom of the Jazz Age transforms New York City, the iridescent Mrs. Theresa Marshall of Fifth Avenue and Southampton, Long Island, has done the unthinkable: she’s fallen in love with her young paramour, Captain Octavian Rofrano, a handsome aviator and hero of the Great War. An intense and deeply honorable man, Octavian is devoted to the beautiful socialite of a certain age and wants to marry her. While times are changing and she does adore the Boy, divorce for a woman of Theresa’s wealth and social standing is out of the question, and there is no need; she has an understanding with Sylvo, her generous and well-respected philanderer husband. Full of the glamour, wit and delicious twists that are the hallmarks of Beatriz Williams’ fiction, A Certain Age is a beguiling reinterpretation of Richard Strauss’s comic opera Der Rosenkavalier, set against the sweeping decadence of Gatsby’s New York.

 

TUESDAY, July 12 – Charles Joyner, Orville Vernon Burton, Eldred E. “Wink” Prince, Jr. (Becoming Southern Writers: Essays in Honor of Charles Joyner) at Ocean Club, Grande Dunes

Nearly thirty exceptional writers of fact, fiction and poetry pay tribute to South Carolinian Charles Joyner’s fifty-year career as a Southern historian, folklorist and social activist. These exceptional writers – a veritable Who’s Who of Southern writers – are among Joyner’s many friends, admirers and colleagues, as well as those to whom Joyner has served as a mentor. The contributors describe how they came to write about the South and the manner they came to write about it, as well as offering reflections on the humanistic tradition of scholarship as lived experience. Diverse in theme and style, these writings represent each author’s personal reflections on experiences living in and writing about the South while touching on topics that surfaced in Joyner’s own works, such as race, family, culture, and place. Whether based on personal or historical events, each one speaks to Joyner’s theme that “all history is local history, somewhere.”

 

July 15 – Emily Edwards (Bars, Blues, and Booze) at Inlet Affairs

True accounts from musicians, bar owners, and regulars at the crossroads of good times and despair.

Bars, Blues, and Booze collects lively bar tales from the intersection of black and white musical cultures in the South. Many of these stories do not seem dignified, decent, or filled with uplifting euphoria, but they are real narratives of people who worked hard with their hands during the week to celebrate the weekend with music and mind-altering substances. These are stories of musicians who may not be famous celebrities but are men and women deeply occupied with their craft – professional musicians stuck with a day job. The author is a professor of media studies at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. She is also an independent filmmaker, whose work includes the documentary “Deadheads: An America Subculture, “which is distributed nationally on PBS stations, and two feature films with blues music scores, “Root Doctor” and “Bone Creek.”

 

July 22 – Julia Franks (Over the Plain House) at Carefree Catering

It’s 1939, and the federal government has sent USDA agent Virginia Furman into the North Carolina mountains to instruct families on modernizing their homes and farms. There she meets farm wife Irenie Lambey, who is immediately drawn to the lady agent’s self-possession. Already, cracks are emerging in Irenie’s fragile marriage to Brodis, an ex-logger turned fundamentalist preacher: She has taken to night ramblings through the woods to escape her husband’s bed, storing strange keepsakes in a mountain cavern. To Brodis, these are all the signs that Irenie – tiptoeing through the dark in her billowing white nightshirt – is practicing black magic. When Irenie slips back into bed with a kind of supernatural stealth, Brodis senses that a certain evil has entered his life, linked to the lady agent, or perhaps to other, more sinister forces. Working in the stylistic terrain of Amy Greene and Bonnie Jo Campbell, this mesmerizing debut by Julia Franks is the story of a woman intrigued by the possibility of change, escape, and reproductive choice – stalked by a Bible-haunted man who fears his government and stakes his integrity upon an older way of life. As Brodis chases his demons, he brings about a final act of violence that shakes the entire valley. In this spellbinding Southern story, Franks bares the myths and mysteries that modernity can’t quite dispel.

 

July 29 – West Fraser (Painting the Southern Coast) at Pawleys Plantation

This stunning collection of the works of West Fraser, one of the nation’s most respected painters of representational art. A mastery of his medium and the scope of work ensure his place in Southern art history. A true son of the lowcountry, Fraser has dedicated much of his career to capturing the lush, primordial beauty of the Southeast’s coastal regions that have been altered by man and time. The 260 works in this book are representative of the sketches, studies, and finished paintings he has generated over his nearly forty-year career, works that depict coastal locales from Winyah Bay, South Carolina, to St. Augustine, Florida, and include Charleston, Hilton Head, Savannah, and the islands of the lowcountry through the Golden Isles of Georgia.

Geriatric Monologues at Murrells Inlet Community Theater

With any luck, we all will get older. Writer Jim R. Rogers, known to most folks on the Grand Strand as a parenting educator, decided to put his thoughts on growing older – the joys, the pains, the epiphanies, the laughs – into poems, published in his book “Starts and Stops Along the Way.”JIM AT ZAPATA 2

Now, a selection of his insights, captured as the “Geriatric Monologues,” have already received  acclaim as the featured play in the Atlantic Stage New Play competition, and will be performed in June at the Murrells Inlet Community Theater.

Jim’s reflections are poignant and funny: “As we grow older, we start disappearing.  Lots of people don’t see us anymore, rarely listen to our stories of who we were, when we were, and being an elder carries very little respect in our youth- oriented high tech world. I wanted more people to understand the process, what we go through, how we feel and that we are still alive and still have much to offer.  Once I wore two different shoes.  Nobody noticed.”

The Geriatric Monologues world premiere is June 17 at 7:30 p.m. Other performances are: 7:30 p.m. June 18, 24 and 25; and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.  on June 19 and 26.

Who: Jim R. Rogers, poet, writer, parenting expert and playwright

What: Geriatric Monologues performances

When: June 17, 18, 24, 25 at 7:30 p.m.; June 19 and 26 at 2 p.m.

Where: Murrells Inlet Community Theater, 4462 Murrells Inlet Road

Tickets: $15; call box office at 843-651-4152 for reservations.

Odyssey of the Sea Turtle Program at Museum of Coastal Carolina

The sea turtle nesting season has begun. Several confirmed nests have already been reported on Brunswick County, North Carolina beaches. Want to learn more about sea turtles? Every Monday at 3:30 pm this summer, the Museum of Coastal Carolina – in conjunction with the Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization (OIBSTPO) – is presenting a program called Odyssey of the Sea Turtle. Jim Boyce and volunteers from OIBSTPO will discuss the life cycle of sea turtles, focusing especially on the loggerhead sea turtles that nest on our beaches every summer. The presentation will include a 14-minute video and a question-and-answer session at the end. Learn what you can do to help protect these magnificent animals.

Jim Boyce and his wife, Deb, are island coordinators for OIBSTPO. They are licensed by the NC Wildlife Commission and coordinate a network of approximately 50 volunteers in a year-round effort to promote sea turtles and educate the public about them. Volunteers are especially active between May and late September when female sea turtles dig their nests and lay their eggs. Volunteers identify and mark the nests, try to protect the nests from predators, keep an eye on hatchlings as they make their way from their nests into the ocean, and transport sick and injured sea turtles to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Topsail Island. For more information about OIBSTPO, visit www.oibseaturtles.org.

The Art of the Brick® Debuts at Myrtle Beach Art Museum

The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum will host The Art of the Brick®, an exhibition featuring large-scale sculptures created out of iconic LEGO® bricks by New York-­based artist Nathan Sawaya. The event begins Saturday, June 11, 2016,
The Art of the Brick is one of the largest and most popular art exhibits touring the globe. CNN hailed The Art of the Brick as one of the top twelve “must-­see exhibitions in the world.”
“This year alone, we’ve visited Australia, South Africa and Taiwan,” said Sawaya. “We are thrilled to be bringing this collection to Myrtle Beach, SC.”
Like most young kids, Sawaya started playing with LEGO at a young age. But unlike most kids, Sawaya never stopped building, creating and exploring his own imagination. The result has solidified his place in pop culture history and he is making an indelible mark on the art world as well. The award-­winning artist has catapulted the iconic LEGO brick into an art medium all its own, transforming this construction toy into awe-inspiring and thought provoking sculptures.
The centerpiece of Sawaya’s collection of sculptures, as well as arguably his most famous piece of artwork, is entitled Yellow, a LEGO torso of a man ripping open his chest while yellow plastic bricks cascade out of the open chest cavity. Sawaya has made a name for himself by creating out of LEGO exacting replicas of the human form in various states of emotion, including anger, love, depression and joy. Concurrently on display at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum and for the run of the exhibition will be Sawaya’s unique multi-­media collaboration with award-­winning Australian photographer Dean West, entitled In Pieces. The two artists spent years traveling and working together to blend their crafts resulting in the In Pieces collection of visually stunning hyper-realistic images that are exhibited with corresponding and complimentary three-dimensional LEGO sculptures.
“I use LEGO bricks as my medium because I enjoy seeing people’s reactions to artwork created from something with which they are familiar. Everyone can relate to it since it is a toy that many children have at home. I want to elevate this simple plaything to a place that it has never been before. I want to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before. I also appreciate the cleanliness of the medium. The right angles.  The distinct lines. As so often in life, it is a matter of perspective. Up close, the shape of the brick is distinctive. But from a distance, those right angles and distinct lines change to curves,” Sawaya said.
The Art of the Brick will be on view at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum, 3100 S. Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, SC from Saturday, June 11 through Saturday, September 10, 2016.  The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 – 4 p.m. Admission is free; however donations are suggested.  Please check the website MyrtleBeachArtMuseum.org for extended summer hours.

About Nathan Sawaya
Nathan Sawaya is an acclaimed New York-based artist who creates awe-inspiring artwork out of a toy. His art focuses on large-scale sculptures using only LEGO® bricks. Sawaya was the first artist to ever take LEGO® into the art world and his touring exhibition – The Art Of The Brick® – has entertained and inspired millions of art lovers and enthusiasts from Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, China and around the world. CNN heralded, “The Art Of The Brick® is one of the top 12 must-see exhibits in the world!” Originally from Oregon, Sawaya’s childhood dreams were always fun and creative. He drew cartoons, wrote stories, perfected magic tricks and of course also played with LEGO®. His days were filled with imagination. When it came time for college, Sawaya moved to New York City, attended NYU and became a lawyer. But after years of million dollar mergers and corporate acquisitions on Park Avenue, Sawaya realized he would rather be sitting on the floor creating art than sitting in a board room negotiating contracts. He walked away from the law and took an artistic risk on LEGO®. Now Sawaya is an author, speaker and one of the most popular, award-winning contemporary artists of our time.

Dr. Mark Baumgartner will present a program June 7 at 6 pm at the Museum of Coastal Carolina’s Sand Bar Lecture Series called North Atlantic Right Whales: The Science and Conservation of a Species on the Brink of Extinction. The Sand Bar Lecture Series is sponsored by OIB Surf & Java.

North Atlantic right whales are a critically endangered species. There are only about 500 left in the world and, as Dr. Baumgartner points out, “they live right here in our backyard along the U.S. east coast.” Dr. Baumgartner will discuss the plight of the right whale, the biology of these extraordinary animals, advances in technology that allow us to keep tabs on their whereabouts, and how science is helping promote the conservation of this species. Dr. Baumgartner maintains that “there is much we can still do to help the right whale survive.”

Mark Baumgartner is a marine ecologist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. He has studied marine animals for the past 24 years off the U.S. east coast, the Gulf of Mexico, in the U.S. Arctic, and as far away as the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean. Dr. Baumgartner is interested in using science to promote the conservation of endangered large whales. He uses a variety of approaches to study whales including tags, acoustics, and robots.

CAPE FEAR SHAKESPEARE ON-THE-GREEN FESTIVAL

The time is nigh and the stage is set for the 2016 Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green festival, held every weekend in June at the Hugh Morton Greenfield Lake Amphitheater. Now in its 24th season, the annual free-to-the-public Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green festival, in association with the City of Wilmington, will present two shows: “Twelfth Night” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona.”

 

Themes of William Shakespeare’s plays continue to resonate with modern audiences. Have you ever wondered where oft-quoted lines originated? For instance: “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them…” and “They do not love, that do not show their love.” These memorable quotes are from Shakespeare’s masterpieces “Twelfth Night” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona,” respectively. Both plays are slated for the 2016 season of Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green and will be staged on select dates in June.

 

The Cape Fear Shakespeare Youth Company kicks off the season performing The Bard’s first romantic comedy, “The Two Gentlemen of Verona.” This playful show, directed by CFSOTG artistic director Cherri McKay, is about privileged youths with no real responsibility who are living in a world where adults are on the parameter. Cape Fear Shakespeare Youth Company performances are suitable for families and will be staged at 8:00 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, June 6-8 and Monday through Thursday, June 13-16.

 

“Twelfth Night,” directed by Adrian Monte, is this year’s feature production. Among Shakespeare’s most perfect comedies, the romantic plot revolves around separated twins, misplaced passions, and mistaken identity. Meanwhile, a satirical subplot unfolds as a self-deluded steward who dreams of becoming a count is derailed by the merrymakers he wishes to suppress. Put all these people together and you have a delightful poignant symphony of miscommunication, misconception and non-comprehension, all fueled by romantic desire. Add the lush backdrop of Greenfield Park and you have the makings of a perfect summer outing. Performances are staged each weekend at 8:00 p.m., beginning Saturday, June 4 through Sunday, June 26. Performance dates for “Twelfth Night” are June 4-5; 10-12; 17-19; and 24-26, with an additional Actor Appreciation show on Thursday, June 23.

 

Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green is among Wilmington’s most anticipated summer traditions. Visitors and residents enjoy free productions of The Bard’s works in a family atmosphere at the Hugh MortonGreenfield Lake Amphitheater. Located in the heart of Wilmington on the lake’s edge, the stage is surrounded by stately moss-draped cypress trees and well-manicured gardens of Greenfield Park. With 900 seats, the amphitheater is the only one of its kind in Southeastern North Carolina and is among Wilmington’s largest entertainment venues. Performances of Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green are free to the public and donations are always welcome and appreciated. Gates open at 6:30 pm; shows begin at 8:00 p.m.

 

For an evening of laid-back fun that brings the arts and nature together, arrive early and bring a picnic or enjoy a snack from the concession stand. Greenfield Lake Amphitheater is located at 1941 Amphitheater Drive, Wilmington. For more details call 910-399-2878, email shakespeareonthegreen03@yahoo.com or visit www.capefearshakespeare.com.
