Letter from the Editor: Renew, Revive, Rekindle

By Leslie Moore

Letter from the Editor

Growing up, I had a beautiful print of flying pelicans in my room and, still, so many years later, I can close my eyes and see those birds, instantly recalling the way this small piece of art made me feel. I never talked to my mother about how much that little print meant to me, and now it’s long gone, but I do believe it changed me in ways that only art can. My darling Ellis, the younger of my two equally darling granddaughters, is getting her first piece of art from me on her upcoming birthday, a gorgeous print called Butterfly Girl, by Celia Wester – a talented and creative artist who also happens to be my friend and coworker. (You can see her fabulous work at cwesterstudio.com.) I believe this powerful piece of art will give Ellis the same sense of wonder and appreciation for beauty that I had as a child – and hopefully a lifelong appreciation for the arts and their magic.

If you love art like I do, mark your calendar and come to the Seaside Palette En Plein Air in Georgetown on Saturday, September 24th. Some of the region’s most talented artists (including Celia) will be along Front Street painting all day. You’ll also get to watch local and regional chalk artists create their masterpieces on concrete – and create your own sidewalk art if you like! This day-long event, including fun, live music by The Healing Force, is the kick-off of the 2016 Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Art. We hope you’ll join us!

One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory.

    Art sings, and I went to Celia’s website, I’m a coffee person so her blue cup filled with coffee speaks to me. . .Thanks for the introduction into color!
