Lord, what fools these mortals be

Posted by Francesca Mathewes on Thu, Dec 14, 2017 at 11:36 AM

If you’re a theater buff, we’ve got exciting news for you. And if you’re not, well, you’re gonna be one soon, because the Charleston Library Society has put together a home-run gala event.

This year’s unique format is a celebration of the U.S. publication of Bernard Cornwell's most recent work, Fools and Mortals, which tells the story of the first production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, taking place in 1595. Broadway actors will perform scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet in Charleston’s historic Dock Street Theater, with narration from Cornwell himself. Plus, there will also be a surprise musical guest.

After the performance there will be a reception in the theater courtyard with hors d'oeuvres created by James Beard Award Winner, Mike Lata of FIG. The fest starts at 6 p.m on Sat. Jan. 13 and tickets start at $150.

It's back: Grab your North of Spring 2018 calendar today

Dick in a box

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 1:00 PM


North of Spring is Charleston's cheekiest calendar this side of, well, Spring Street. The collaborative calendar, produced by Recovery Room's Chris "Boston: DiMattia, features local businesses celebrating their staff (and booze, of course) every month of the year.

The third edition of the calendar (they skipped 2017), this year's photos feature a little more skin a little less seriousness, which is kind of what we all need for 2018 anyway. Our favorite? Rec Room's full-on display of debauchery, dick-in-a-box and all.

Rec Room's Annie Emery took this year's photos.
  • Rec Room's Annie Emery took this year's photos.

The calendars are $10 and can be purchased at each participating business, which includes: Affordabike, Local 616, Downtown's Tattooed Moose, Rec Room, Santi's, Cutty's, Royal American, AC's, Dudley's, Pedishaw, Palace Hotel, and The Alley.

All profits from the sale of North of Spring will be used to plant trees in Charleston.

Redux holds Camera Works Cafe with Swedish artist Eva Arnqvist Thurs. Dec. 21

Reason, intention, art

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Wed, Dec 13, 2017 at 11:56 AM

In August, Redux hosted an exhibit by prolific international mixed media artist Vassiliki Falkehag entitled Changing Index. The exhibit, comprised of plastic bottles and water samples, broken toys and rusty nails, explored the relationship, often tumultuous, between organic and inorganic materials. "We're at a point where nature, even though it has ways to recycle, can't copy anymore," Falkehag said.

One of Falkehag's former students, Swedish visual artist Eva Arnqvist, will be the featured guest at Redux's Camera Works Cafe next Thurs. Dec. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. Falkehag says of Arnqvist, "[she] is a visual artist whose broad practice at its core always deals with place and societal change and how everyday life is constructed and transformed by it."

This event is not just for lens lovers. The cafe focuses on more than just photography; the third Thursday of each month, Redux brings together creatives around the city to present photography and art followed by an open discussion and critique. Arnqvist, who holds an MFA from the Royal Institute in Stockholm, has been the "initiator" of several collaborative and disciplinary projects and has published several books. Her work has been shown at Kalmar Art Museum, Norrkoping Art Museum, Marabouparken, Index — the Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, and more.
