As a freelance writer penning profiles on visual artists, the Beehive’s Stephanie Burt noticed that while Charleston has high-end galleries and artist/craft markets, there was nothing in between. Installed for one night at the Terrace Theater, their Buzzworthy show will showcase 50-60 pieces from five artists in the cinema’s lobby. “I wanted artists unfamiliar to a Charleston audience, artwork that has a ‘buzz,’” she says. “I also was looking for fresh concepts, even in familiar mediums such as photography or printmaking.” She’ll introduce the work of Walker Babington, Maryanna Williams, Shellie Mitchell, Leslie McKellar, and Marcus Amaker (who will present collages instead of his usual poetry), each without gallery representation in the Lowcountry, to local collectors. The night also features a demonstration from Babington, a blowtorch artist (seen above), and a pop-up portrait studio from Jason Layne. “All the artists are different,” Burt says. “Buzzworthy isn’t about cohesion of a theme, it’s about juxtaposition. I want each artist and piece of artwork to stand out.” If you can’t make it this time around, Buzzworthy 2 will take place at the Cocktail Club on Nov. 9 with five new artists.
