Art Works Welcome Spring Reception & Benefit
Celebrate spring on Saturday, March 25, from 2 to 5 p.m., at a drop-in reception at Art Works in the Litchfield Exchange. Launch your spring bike riding season at this fundraiser for Bike the Neck.
Raffle baskets and special gift items! Book baskets, bicycle baskets, Easter baskets, a great trail bike and more will be raffled to raise funds to complete the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway between Trace Drive and Boyle Road in North Litchfield. Bicyclists and pedestrians currently must “share the road” with car traffic, creating a gap in safety as they travel the bike trail. The safety connector will cost $80 per linear foot. Raffle tickets are 3 for $5, 7 for $10, or 15 for $20! Large check donations (payable to Georgetown County with “Bike the Neck” in the memo line) will be gratefully accepted!
Free to look! Fine, folk and functional artwork freshly created for the season will be on display, including new paintings by Terry Belanger, Nancy Bracken, Millie Doud, Barnie Slice and Jane Woodward, surrounded by fabric art by Terry Belanger, Gwen Coley, Millie Doud, Zenobia Harper and Barbara Linderman, creative stained glass by Sharon Knost and Kathy Welde, fused glass by Suz Mole, tactile wood turnings by Roger Cleveland, clay art by Gwen Coley and Lisa Elvington, felted wool hats by Cindy Valentine and irresistible, whimsical folk art by Kathi Bixler.
Free to chat! A dozen local authors and illustrators will be available to sell and sign their new books, including Tanya Ackerman (Pawleys Island: Chasing the Light), Carole Bellacera, Mary Anne Benedetto, Kathi Bixler, Linda Cookingham, Tom and Christine Doran, Millie Doud, Lynda Durrant, Darlene Eichler, Jana Hletko, Anne Malarich and Bob O’Brien.
Free to listen! Bob Ackerman and Pam Purvis, award-winning, international musical duo, will be performing sophisticated, swingin’ soulful jazz from their CD “Two for the Road.” After 41 years performing jazz standards and songs from the Great American Song Book together, their duet presentation for horn and voice is unique and satisfying. “Purvis and Ackerman emanate harmonic style reminiscent of Lester Young and Billie Holiday. Purvis’s voice follows Ackerman’s full-bodied horn with authoritative harmony and absolute charm.” (Jazz Now)
Free to nosh! Wine and cheese, punch and cookies, coffee and chocolates!
