Reinert Fine Art & Sculpture Garden Gallery will be celebrating the life & works of Detta Zimmerman (1945-2014) on Friday, July 3rd from 5-8pm. Zimmerman was a Summerville, SC artist specializing in lowcountry views, Charleston streetscapes, and colorful still lifes.
Stop by the gallery at 179 King Street to see an extensive collection of her works. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
The way the Charleston community united in love and faith over the recent tragedy is remarkable. Evil visited Charleston and shattered lives, but we remain Charleston strong. Our leaders led with wisdom, professionalism, heart and soul. I am humbled by the families and the heroes, honored to be part of this community. Seems awkward to go back to talking about cheery King Street news under that considerable shadow, but we go on, albeit changed forever. Love and prayers all who were so deeply wounded by the act of hate and racism.
Maestro Matteo Fedeli, violin virtuoso, held two concerts at the Charleston Library Society last month accompanied by Andrea Carcano. Connecting dots, 2nd Sunday on King Street brings many area residents downtown. They love it and sign up for news about other special events. Because of that reach, people who had never seen or heard a Stradivarius violin, never been inside the Library Society, never experienced the Sylvan Gallery or Reinert Fine Art Gallery—each one held pre-concert receptions—got a magic memory. Mission accomplished.
Both concerts led me to explore and admire the Charleston Library Society. It’s as beautiful inside as it it outside. There are stacks, of course, with titles ranging from historic books to newer ones. You can check out a movie just like at the public library. There are historic documents to view as well, and comfortable chairs for lingering. The main space, which is basically a big rectangular box, has wonderful acoustics for performances, and a fine Steinway piano, perpetually in tune. World renowned pianist Andrea Carcano took full advantage of the instrument with a solo performance midway through both Fedeli concerts, summoning the first of many standing ovations.

With a major in art during his high school years and a scholarship to Austin Peay State University, he joined the United States Air Force during the Vietnam era and continued to paint during his final tour at Norton AFB in San Bernadino, California. Painting had become a passion for Frank, and after discharge from the USAF his Impressionistic style was refined, and became his trademark for many of his works that are now displayed in many private homes and art galleries in the United States The love of the outdoors has drawn Frank into en plein aire works and many of his works capture that one moment in time when the lighting was just right.
Pictured here is his painting "Down the Road", 24x20 oil on Belgian linen.

Have a ring you haven't taken off in years? This interesting tool was recently used at Joint Venture Estate Jewelers. A woman came in who had not taken a ring off in years. Her knuckle had gotten larger and the ring would no longer slide over it. Panicked, she was about to head to the emergency room when Joint Venture offered to help.
The emergency room is equipped to remove a ring but they primarily care about your finger. At Joint Venture, they care about your finger AND the ring! Joint Venture gently slid the guard between her finger and the inside of the ring and cut through the ring.In a matter of minutes her finger was free! Joint Venture will now resize the ring to comfortably go on and off.
