    Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail Exhibit Opens at Clemson City Hall

    Where
    Clemson, SC [ Map ]
    Description
    The ARTS Center of Clemson is pleased to announce the opening of "Inside / Outside", the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail Exhibit at Clemson, City Hall, 1250 Tiger Blvd #1, Clemson, SC 29631. The exhibit will run from July 17 through September 29. The exhibit title "Inside / Outside" celebrates the link between the quilts and the quilt blocks.
    The UHQT Exhibit, "Inside / Outside", features eight unique handmade quilts, each with their own special history and story. Each quilt pattern is carefully recreated on a 4' x 4' quilt block that is then installed on the UHQT trail. Typically, you must travel the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail to view the beautiful patterns and nostalgic pictures. But, during the "Inside / Outside" Exhibit at Clemson City Hall, you can see many of the quilts and quilt block patterns together in one location. Each quilt celebrates a rich history, a love of design, color and dedication to the craft of quilting.
    The Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail gives locals and visitors a guide by which to seek out some of the fascinating history of this region. There is much to discover beyond just the beautiful quilt squares themselves. Visit the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail website, www.uhqt.org, for a full list of quilt trail stops, interactive maps, and suggested itineraries.
    The ARTS Center in Clemson provides exceptional arts education and makes fine art exciting and accessible to our community.

    Description
    SC WaterMedia Exhibit Comes to Spartanburg for First Time in 10 Years

    For the first time in more than 10 years, the South Carolina WaterMedia Society's annual Traveling Exhibit will come to Spartanburg in September 2017 and will be on public display at West Main Artists Co-Op.
    "Actually, West Main Artists Co-Op is the only gallery in Upstate South Carolina where this most-noted statewide exhibit will be displayed," Spartanburg watercolorist Dwight Rose said. Rose, a member of the Society, was instrumental in getting Spartanburg on the tour list. "The last time the exhibit came to Spartanburg was when the old Spartanburg Art Center was on Spring Street."
    This is the WaterMedia Society's 39th year of sponsoring this annual exhibit that juries work from watercolor artists from throughout the state and beyond. This year there were 183 entries, from which 30 winners were selected by Canadian artist Marc Taro Holmes. Five of the winners are from the Upstate and Western North Carolina. They are Diana Carnes of Pendleton (Tsunami), Patricia Cole-Ferullo of Tryon (Dark Beauty), Monique Wolfe of Greenville (Between Concerts), Lori Solymosi of Pendleton (Looking Back), and Ann Heard of Anderson (Blue House). More than $8,000 in prize money was awarded in the 2016 competition. The Best of Show winner was titled The Hands of a Fisherman by Lynda English of Florence. This is the 2016 exhibit that tours the state from the fall of 2016 to the fall 2017.
    The exhibit will open on Sept. 6 and close on Sept. 30. A private pre-opening event for donors will be held Sept. 5, and the free public reception will be held Saturday, Sept. 9, 5-8 p.m. The exhibit can viewed Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. There is no charge to see the exhibit.
    "We are so honored to host the WaterMedia Exhibit this year," WMAC President Beth Regula said. "We are especially excited that this is an opportunity for people from outside of Spartanburg to visit our gallery and community. The work this year is absolutely wonderful in its diversity of styles and content. Just within the five Upstate winners, you have equestrian subject matter, a nude, an abstract, a nonrepresentational, and impressionism. Those are just the ones from this region: There are 25 more works of art to be seen in this collection. If you have any appreciation at all for art, you must see this exhibit while you can."
    The 2016 exhibit was juried by Holmes of Montreal. He is author of The Urban Sketcher: Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location (2014) and the instructor for two online classes in location sketching. Since 2009, he has been a correspondent with urbansketchers.org. Additionally, he served as a board member and volunteer editor. Holmes was elected to the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor in 2016, recently winning their Sloan Award (2016) and CSPWC Second Prize Award (2017). He graduated in 1995 with a bachelor's in fine art from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta. During his 15-year career, he has been as an art director and concept artist for various studios, including Electronic Arts, Microsoft, and Disney. He has worked on games such as Dragon Age Inquisition, Neverwinter Nights, and Baldur's Gate, specializing in characters/costumes and fantasy-historical environmental design. His second art book Designing Creatures and Characters: How to Build an Artist's Portfolio for Video Games, Film, Animation and More was released in October of 2016.
    "There is a tremendous amount of raw talent, invested effort, and earned experience laid out in front of me," Holmes said about the South Carolina artists. "It's inspiring to see the range of ideas on display. Every artist has their own media and techniques, and the subjects they find worthy of immortalizing. With each one I get a new jolt of excitement. Having to look seriously at all the work, to try and understand the artist's intent, and to deduce the steps in the creation, it's been like a visit to a world class museum."
    Since 1977, the South Carolina Watermedia Society has promoted the artistic and professional interests of its members as well as providing visual arts programs to the public. The Society works towards achieving its goals by making the accomplishments of its members available to a broad base of South Carolinians. SCWS, the largest statewide visual arts group, is an active presenting organization. It nurtures and promotes South Carolina artists by providing exhibition opportunities, special programs to market their original works, and educational programs.
    WMAC is the only studio art co-op in Spartanburg County and art is produced and on display throughout the 20,000 square foot building, which is a former church. The exhibitions, workshops, performances, and educational opportunities, along with artists' studios, subsist in the creation of a unique environment, a one-of-a-kind facility that houses like-minded individuals who share a common creative consciousness. The nonprofit organization has 32 studios and more than 50 member artists.
    Other South Carolina cities and counties that are hosting this exhibit include Marion County, Sumter, Hartsville, North Charleston, Lancaster, and Aiken. The travel arrangements are being managed by the SC State Museum.
    There is no cost to see this exhibit, and it is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. WMAC is located at 578 West Main Street, Spartanburg, SC. For more information, please call (864) 804-6501.

    Description
    Between September 10 and 23, Greenville area residents can recycle used car seats! In celebration of National Baby Safety Month, 1,700 Target stores nationwide and across South Carolina are hosting car seat collection programs to help residents reduce household clutter without sending waste to landfills. All car seats collected in this program will be recycled through TerraCycle so that each component will see a second life.

    Residents should bring their car seats to participating Target stores and look for Target's car seat collection box in the front of the store or in the baby/kids floor pad section. When a customer turns in a used car seat, he or she will receive a coupon for 20% off the purchase of a new one.

    After the recycling program ends, TerraCycle will separate the different components of the car seats (cloth elements, plastics, metals, etc.) and process them for use in other products.

    The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Clemson University (OLLI) is offering new, free programs open to the public this fall. Seminars feature talks on the concept of wonder and awe as well as a look at forensic anthropology and what can be learned from human skeletons. These programs will be held at the Charles K. Cheezem Education center, located in Patrick Square at 100 Thomas Green Boulevard, Clemson.

    On Sept. 22 at 11:00 a.m., Reverend Bruce Booher, retired Lutheran pastor, will discuss the concepts of "wonder" and "awe." In this lively session, participants will explore new ways to experience awe. There will also be opportunities for participants to share times when they stood in awe and wonder before the marvels of creation. Revered Booher attended undergrad at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he studied astronomy and physics, and is an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. He now spends his time leading workshops on faith and science.

    On Oct 16 at 11:00 a.m., Dr. Katherine Weisensee, an associate professor within the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Clemson University, leads a seminar on forensic anthropology. The human skeleton provides a record of a person's life, and this presentation provides an overview of what can be learned about people from looking at their skeletal remains as well as hands-on examples of skeletal variation.

    For more information about either of these seminars, contact Julie Vidotto at jvidott@clemson.edu or 864-633-5244.
