‘SEE Jazz’ in a whole new way

Photograph by Reese Moore

This Friday, April 9th, from 8-11 pm, the Jazz Artists of Charleston will put on their annual Spring fundraiser at the Charleston Center for Photography.

The JAC’s swanky party will be a mere $20 trade-off for great music, hors d’oeuvres, open wine bar, silent auction and art work.

Four photographers, Alice Keeney, Ben Williams, Priscilla Thomas and Reese Moore, who have been chronicling the Charleston Jazz scene from behind the scenes, and artists Nathan Durfee, Lisa Shimko, Nick Jenkins and Michael Moran will present work that let’s you “listen with your eyes.”

Check out Jack McCray’s article in last Thursday’s Charleston SCENE.  Call (843) 641.0011 or visit Etix for tickets.

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.

For more information about donations, contact Tina Christophillis at magpiestudio@gmail.com.

Tickets are $20 advance, $25 at the door. Visit the Boone Hall Plantation’s website to purchase tickets.


Annual Autumn Leaves Fundraiser a success!

The Autumn Leaves Festival kicked off another successful fundraiser event at the beginning of this October… if you weren’t lucky enough to attend, here’s a run down of the happenings.

Jeff Burden, a local Charlestonian, lead the annual Autumn Leaves auction festival, which benefits The Bascom, a new visual arts center in Highlands, NC. Taking place over two days, October 2 and 3, hundreds of people joined together for the first night in the resort community of Highlands at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn. Over 200 bidders mingled and nibbled on party treats while enjoying the live and silent auction items.

The second night, The Bascom hosted the event to over 450 people with a bluegrass and barbeque theme. Art demos and a pumpkin sale rounded out the fun. The event raised thousands of dollars for The Bascom, a nonprofit visual arts center that recently completed a six-acre, $13 million campus.CHARLESTON Burden Howard Carlton
