Editor's Note: In the 11/20/13 issue we began a two part series on the rebirth of the historic Lipsitz building in downtown Beaufort. Margaret Evans spotlighted Atelier On Bay, the maze of artists' studios and galleries that rambles through the entire second story of the building. Read Part One here.
For more than a century the rambling wood building on the corner of West and Bay Streets stood as the center of commerce in downtown Beaufort.
Is it a Van Gogh or just pretending to be? "Masterpiece Masquerade" will once again be the feature exhibit for Beaufort Art Association's All-Member Holiday Show. Each year BAA invites all 200 of their members to exhibit in their downtown gallery. Over the years Masterpiece Masquerade has been a favorite subject for artists and art patrons. This year's exhibit will not disappoint. Artists were asked to pick their favorite master artist to emulate, or to recreate a masterpiece, adding their own twist. Either way, this December the BAA Gallery will be filled with Beaufort artists' own "masterpieces," reminiscent of those hanging art museums all over the world. There will be oils, acrylics, collage, drawings and mixed media.
Your December wedding day was perfect! The ceremony was romantic. The flowers were gorgeous. The reception was wonderful. The food was amazing. The band was fabulous. The cake was delicious. The weather was beautiful. It all just went by too fast! With all of the effort that goes into planning a wedding, why should it end with the toss of a bouquet and a quick getaway?
This is my favorite season. Nippy nights and cool days get me pulling out favorite sweaters and socks, and looking at the sky, day and night. Weather fronts offer the most unusual clouds. I saw some today that looked like my father's eyebrows, which resembled overgrown plumose antennae of moths.
