Call for artists: Enough Pie's Awakening — Nourish draws inspiration from the Upper Neck

Finding nourishment

For seven years now, Enough Pie has hosted a community initiative/festival/arts collaboration, 'Awakening.' This year, Enough Pie executive director Cathryn Zommer says that the organization is expanding their Awakening offerings (which usually take place over the course of a month), with a full year of programming and public art works that center around the theme of 'Nourish.'

Enough Pie is currently looking for collaborators for Nourish, asking for applications from artists, "problem solvers," neighborhood associations, doers, "movers and shakers." As always Awakening: Nourish will feature a series of events and public installations; this year those events and installations will be "based on nurturing ourselves and our neighborhoods with creativity and joy."

Enough Pie is looking for simple proposals for projects that connect and empower Charleston's upper peninsula, noting that there is "no limit to your creative vision." Suggested locations for these projects include the Food Lion parking lot on King Street, the backyard park of the Joseph Floyd Manor, and Martha Lou's side yard.

Head to a public meeting on Tues. Nov. 13 at 1020 King St. to learn more about Nourish and be sure to turn in your proposal by noon on Mon. Dec. 17. If you have any additional questions, you can email

After the project proposals are accepted, they will begin to be implemented in the community through June 2019. Until then, though, there are current community events and projects that locals can take part in. Every Tuesday from 5:30-7 p.m. join the Stone Stoup Collective when they head to the Butterfly Book Nook (a community garden located at 1020 King St.) for soup and storytelling.
Transformation Table, starting in January, 2019, is an opportunity for a diverse group of people to eat food from another culture in a stranger's home in the Upper Peninsula.

Charleston Museum updates and expands its Civil War exhibit

New objects include buried family items

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Wed, Nov 7, 2018 at 11:48 AM

Following last year's extensive renovation of its Natural History Gallery, the Charleston Museum unveils another renovation, this time of its permanent Civil War exhibit. City Under Siege: Charleston in the Civil War, which tells the story of Charleston's role in the war from a range of perspectives, now features updated exhibit panels, new images, and additional pieces.
In a press release, museum director Carl Borick says that this renovation improves some of the more dated aspects of the previous exhibit: "Visitors to the exhibit will come away with a thorough understanding of Charleston's role in the Civil War and its effects on the city."
  • Provided
New objects on display include family items that were buried to keep them from enemy hands; a battle flag; and a receipt documenting the death of an enslaved person who died while working on Confederate fortifications on Sullivan's Island.

The Charleston Museum is open Mon.-Sat. from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, noon-5 p.m.

Introduce yourself to these 10 artists

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Mon, Nov 5, 2018 at 5:12 PM

You may remember walking by 535 King St. earlier this year, seeing pieces of art suddenly appear in the windows of a vacant building (the spot on Upper King was most recently home to bookstore/art gallery PULP, which left in Jan. 2017). INTRO, which graced 535 King St. this past March, is back, displaying work from 10 "rising visual artists" for nine days.
INTRO opens on Fri. Nov. 9 with a reception from 5-7 p.m.; the work will be on display through Sun. Nov. 18. The show, curated and hosted by Art Mag owner and publisher, Matt Mill and owner of Spire Art Services, Michele Seekings, identifies and showcases work from emerging Southern, contemporary artists.

The show's featured artists include Craig Lynberg, Katherine Dunlap, Paul Cristina, Alex Waggoner, Chambers Austelle, Adam Eddy, Anne Rhett, Chris Nickels, Carrie Beth Waghorn, and Sara Pittman.

In a press release Mill says, "At Art Mag, we’re always thinking about ways to help art lovers discover, connect with, and champion new artists. We are proud to partner with Spire Art Services to highlight these ten talented young artists, and are excited for what this show represents for the future of Charleston arts."

Mill and Seekings hope this pop-up exhibition serves as a foundation to develop an annual week devoted to the visual arts.
