Honda of South Carolina Concerts In The Park To Feature Melanie McMillan and M Theory

On Sunday, September the 12th from 3 to 4 pm, join with your fellow citizens from across the community, and sit back in chairs or lie back on blankets with a well stocked hamper of munchies and non-alcoholic beverages nearby as together we enjoy the vocal stylings of singer-songwriter Melanie McMillan and instrumental support provided by the remarkably fine musicians of M Theory. It will be a memorable afternoon of music. It's the Honda of South Carolina Concerts In The Park, and it's sponsored by the Florence Regional Arts Alliance in collaboration with the City of Florence Parks and Beautification and the Florence Museum. It's a monthly gift to the community, and it provides one of those wonderful opportunities to enjoy that exceptional talent of those living in our own community as well as those living in the Southeast. When talent sings, plays an instrument, speaks, dances, or expresses themselves in a myriad of other artistic ways, we mere mortals savor the gift of the Muses and often come really close to experiencing the sublime. Mark you calendar for Sunday, September the 12th. The time is 3 until 4:30 pm. The place is the Timrod Park Amphitheatre. Make this Honda of South Carolina Concert In The Park as must. You won't regret that you did. Be there!

"The Perspectives of Pollie Bristow"

Amongst all the materials related to the upcoming exhibition, I just unearthed a really great artist's statement by Pollie Bristow: "Being an artist, I will never grow old because I am always learning and am a quintessential student. My art journey has taken me to many places with many detours, stops, and surprises along the way. Boring, never! I don't always know my path, but I am surely having fun getting there." Pollie's statement should make the Opening of "The Perspectives of Pollie Bristow" from 6 to 8 pm on Thursday, September 2 a must for all who follow and embrace the visual arts, whether as practitioners or as purchasers or as aficionados. Please come and enjoy.

"The Perspectives of Pollie Bristow"

Join the Florence Regional Arts Alliance from 6:00-8:00 pm on Thursday, September 2 when Gallery 412 opens "The Perspectives of Pollie Bristow." On display at The Arts Alliance's facility at 412 South Dargan Street in Downtown Florence, the show includes 41 works that the artist calls non-representational but which are probably more accurately termed abstract impressionism. Regardless of how the works are described, the show is one that should be experienced by all who enjoy and appreciate the visual arts. Support the arts by attending the September 2 Opening from 6:00-8:00 pm. Although contributions are appreciated, the Opening is free to all who attend, so take advantage of this great opportunity to experience quality work that has been created by a seasoned and prolific artist from right here in the immediate community.
