Olivia Pool from Charleston Art Magazine interviews artists Robert Lange and Nathan Durfee about their upcoming collaborative art show, Different Strokes, which opens on December 4, 2009 at the Robert Lange Studios Gallery, 2 Queen Street, Charleston, SC. Each artist has a distinctly different style and they worked by handing the paintings back and forth. Accomplished woodworker Michael Moran also joins the collaboration with a stunning piece of furniture that incorporates Lange and Durfee’s paintings. Definitely a show not to miss!

Wine Under the Oaks…dance, dine, and bid

‘Tis the season for holiday galas, and Wine Under the Oaks is a casual yet elegant affair that pulls out all the stops this December 6, 2009. Boone Hall Plantation will host the fundraiser benefitting the Heroes for Fire Victims Campaign, which assists Lowcountry residents who have lost everything in home fires.

Wine under the Oaks will offer samples of fine wines made at Boone Hall Plantation as well as catering from local gourmet chefs. Live music and a silent auction of packages, wines, and various art will be available to bid on and perhaps even kick start your Christmas shopping!

The American Red Cross is still seeking donations from artists for the silent auction. Art, jewelry, gift certificates, clothing, hair accessories, and sculptures will all be well received and are tax deductable. This is a wonderful opportunity to help the American Red Cross and show off your skills for a noble cause.
