Maybe you had to spend some paint supply money on rent this month?

If you can relate to this, then listen up!

The South Carolina Arts Commission will gift state artists up to $5,000 to start up new arts-based businesses through its S.C. Artists’ Ventures Initiative. An advisory committee of business expects will review your proposal. If chosen, your project will receive help from the board three times a year to stay on track.

Make sure to send a proposal before November 20th. Guidelines are available at

Good luck!

Music at Muse!


Come to Muse for a night of music. This restaurant on Society Street has the ambiance of a quaint home in the Mediterranean, and with 100 wines by the glass, there is something for everyone. Add a little entertainment by the Little City Musical Theatre, and you’ve made your Wednesday feel like the weekend.

Hope to see you there!

What Does Peace Mean to You?

peaceHelp the WALK Gallery bring awareness to September 21, the International Day of Peace and Cease Fire by expressing visually what peace means to you. There are no age limits on the show — the WALK Gallery asks only that you give an open interpretation of what a day of peace means to you.

Submit your bio, artist statement, and an example of your work to by August 24, 2009. The WALK Gallery will contact you via email on details of the show. There is a $5 entry fee, which will be collected when the artwork is dropped off for installation. If you have submitted work to WALK Gallery in the past, your fee will be waived.
