For the passionate collector, art is far more than something beautiful to put on the wall. Each piece comes with a story: where and when it was purchased, perhaps an event or occasion the item commemorates. Possibly there was the thrill of the hunt: to find a work by a particular artist or with a special subject.
In its new exhibition, Grand Strand Collects, the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum presents more than 200 works of art varying from ancient Egyptian artifacts and historical prints to modern and contemporary sculpture and paintings, on loan from 49 private Grand Strand collections. The exhibit opens Thursday, September 28, and runs through December 14. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 1 – 4 p.m. Sundays. Docent tours will be offered during the run of the exhibition. Please check the museum’s website for details.
The Carver Street Economic Renaissance Corporation presents the Second Annual Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival, Friday through Sunday, September 29-October 1.
The celebration takes place along Carver Street, between 18th Avenue North and 21st Avenue North. The event features some of the area’s finest musical artists, including Marcus Anderson, Charlie Snuggs, Horry County School Jazz, James “Bull” Canty, West African Drummers, Painted Man, Gino Castillo, Ashley Aluv, Chocolate Chip and Company, Don Colton, Mike Frost Band, Special Blend, Shableek and T-Ray the Violinist.
T-Ray is the festival’s headliner. He is a passionate and resilient visionary with unwavering dedication to his musical craft. Effortlessly, he has taken the violin outside of its stereotypical arena beautifully lacing together 90s Rhythm and Blues, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk and Classical. The Louisiana native has taken audiences’ favorite genres and masterfully fused them to produce an experimental sound. The seasoned violin player has not only developed himself as a solo artist, but has also honed his skills as a producer and bandleader within his group D2R (Dreams2Reality).
During the festival, enjoy food and merchandise vendors and a wine and beer garden. Bring lawn chairs to relax in a fun and safe environment. Free parking will be available the Pelicans Ballpark parking lot, 1251 21st Avenue North. Free shuttle rides will be provided to and from the site. Admission to the festival is free.
The festival commemorates the entertainment and businesses that existed on Carver Street in the 1950s and 1960s. During that era, African-American performers displayed their talent on what was known as the “Chitlin Circuit,” which is where African-American musicians performed in the days before integration. Stars such as Little Richard, Billie Holliday, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Lena Horne, Count Basie, Muddy Water, Ray Charles and The Clovers performed on the “Chitlin Circuit.”

Maestro Charles Jones Evans will lead the Long Bay Symphony (LBS) in a performance of one of the most familiar and powerful vocal/orchestral masterpieces of all time. The concert takes place on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 4 pm at the Myrtle Beach High School Music and Arts Center.
German composer and educator Carl Orff created a compelling musical setting of verses from the Carmina Burana, a collection of bawdy, irreverent Medieval-era texts discovered in a Bavarian monastery in 1803.
In addition, the opening concert of the LBS’s “Year of the Symphony” features Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s sparkling Symphony No. 31 (“Paris”), written for the composer’s symphonic debut with the French audiences.
Tickets range from $25 to $50. Student tickets (21 & under with student ID) are $10. For tickets call the box office 843-448-8379, purchase online at www.LongBaySymphony.com or visit us at 1107 48th Avenue N., Suite 310-E, Myrtle Beach.

The Green Swamp consists of a 17,214-acre geographic area located in Brunswick County. Managed by The Nature Conservancy, this unique tract of land is pretty much all that is left of the thousands of acres of longleaf pine savannas that once covered southeastern North Carolina.
Learn more about this vast wetland on August 22 at 6 pm at the Museum of Coastal Carolina.
Edward Ovsenik, a former educator for the Ocean Isle Museum Foundation, will present “The Green Swamp” providing a more in-depth view of the true state of the swamp. Many of the current inhabitants of the Green Swamp are descended from an interesting mixture of outcasts including escaped slaves, French refugees fleeing Haiti during and after the Slave Rebellion of 1804, pirates on the run from the authorities, and Native Americans from the Waccamaw, Cherokee, and Lumbee tribes.
