In the coming weeks, Charleston abstract artist Tate Nation, known for his boldly textured acrylic paintings, will be painting one of his stylized Charleston scenes on the front and back of this cello. You may have seen him painting this outside his gallery during 2nd Sunday on King Street.
The cello will be auctioned off at the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Fundraiser Gala in September. Tate Nation's mother was a lifelong musician, music teacher and cellist so he is honored to have been selected by the CSO for this project.
The workshop, "Bringing Light Into Your Paintings," includes 2 days of painting en plein air and one day painting from reference photos. This workshop is $695 and includes lunch daily and a cocktail party on Wednesday evening.
6 out of 10 spaces are still available, limited to intermediate or advanced artists. If interested, email email@example.com or call (843) 345-1785.
We’re lucky. Quick lunch in Charleston doesn’t have to mean eating exactly the same thing millions of Americans are eating at the same time from the same menu where everything begins with “mc”. We have some fast lunch choices that are actually healthy, where the proprietor lives down the street and whose kids go to school with ours. And variety? Forget about it!
Verde at 347 King has generous servings of fresh salad ingredients, tossed, chopped or wrapped around leafy greens, nuts and cheeses. You can add a little basil, mint or cilantro with house made dressings and tasty vinaigrettes. Grab a soda and you’re in lunch heaven.
My favorite barbecue in town is Nicks, 288 King Street. I love a pulled chicken sandwich on a bun made mushy by juices and their great barbecue sauce, a nice side of beans, crisp fries and tangy slaw. In my humble opinion as a true fan, theirs is a step up from anybody in town. Order at the counter and they’ll bring it to your table with a cold iced tea or lemonade. As with any self-respecting barbecue, they have really good pie. If you’re lucky, they’ll have coconut cream. Don’t hesitate or it will be gone.
