I watched It's a Wonderful life outdoors at a neighborhood screening in the freezing cold and got a little metal bell to prove it.
Has anyone actually ever watched It's A Wonderful Life? I think that's just a thing people say they do.

Thanks, Courtney, for writing this article about Sarah's show.
I've had a number of questions already this week from friends and art lovers about Sarah's work, which is sometimes difficult for people to get into - particularly in Charleston with it's small contemporary art market. But I think you understood what we were going for in the gallery when we installed her show, which was to show her process alongside her finished works.
Sarah and I have talked over the years about how to display her work so people could better understand her process of abstraction, taking defined objects, like Georgia O'Keefe's hair bun or an ice cream cone, and repeating them until they take on a life of their own. The paper pieces in the show are here to buy (of course) but also as reference for the larger works that take those familiar elements she loves and obsesses over and pushes them further from their original form to create a new visual dialogue. Her recent residency at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, from where this entire body of work is curated, produced great group of paintings and mixed media pieces, and the smaller "messy" installations here were our way of recreating her head space.
For those City Paper readers and art lovers who are new to abstract art, and those who already know Sarah's work, you can visit us between 9-5 Monday through Friday in Avondale. Art exists to be experienced, so feel free to stop on by.
Cool '58 Ford with Cool Gal!
"Local at heart girl". Nice, that's what Yankees say
The weather here sucks balls.
So much fun! Going back this weekend with more friends!
AIDS is no longer a death sentence in developed countries. It is now a treatable disease.
AIDS seems to be prolonging Earvin "Magic" Johnson's life.
Worried about AIDS? According to the CDC, about 440,000 people die from tobacco smoke every year. That number includes the mostly innocent 49400 who die from exposure to secondhand smoke.
Deaths from AIDS? 8369. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/aids-hiv.h…
That's right, almost 6 times as many die from exposure to secondhand smoke as die from AIDS in the USA.
So if you want to be worried about AIDS to the point where you don't have sex anymore help yourself.
Just don't try to tell me that if you have a cigarette in your mouth.
Better yet, don't get a blood transfusion from someone with aids.
And if you do drop your pants, don't bend over.
Aids is a preventable disease. Keep it in ur pants and shazam....no aids!!
This is a shame full indictment of the Bible Belt's views sex education and teaching condom use. The religious and political leaders know that using condoms effectively prevent the transmission of AIDS and other STDs but continue to their demagogy to pander instead of lead.
Bob, her artwork can be seen at the gallery:
111 E Bay St, Charleston, SC

Nice little gallery just south of Broad.
Is she showing somewhere in Charleston?
As a local up and coming artist, I was wondering if there any where in Charleston that an artist can get assistance in creating a bio and artist statement.
In my 1st yr. of doing this professionally, I find that it is a lot of work becoming a successful artist and that there are many facets that adds to that success, such as
visiting galleries, speaking with other artist, creating a web site, photographing work, updating, meeting deadlines, and exhibiting etc. Perhaps this venture will give us some real hope. Thank you sharing this platform and may all find great success in this inaugural venture.
Kevin Taylor is an artist in every sense of the word.
He deserves all the accolades sometimes reserved for another giant.
I love this. It is my life's greatest disappointment that I have no talent for art creation because my soul hungers for visual, tactile, and auditory art. I am so excited that I might be empowered to help "create" art by becoming a CSA shareholder with a financial investment I can actually afford!
Great idea with lots of opportunities for artists and collectors. Anne
