Art Exhibit: School Pride
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

It’s not all that unusual for musicians to talk the talk about taking a less-is-more approach to their work – but it’s rare indeed for artists to really walk the walk, and apply that philosophy across the board. Over the better part of a decade, Shovels & Rope have done just that, cutting unnecessary frills from their songs, not to mention the very way they live their musical lives” Mississippi-born, Nashville-bred Cary Ann Hearst and Texas-born, Colorado-raised Michael Trent forged singular paths as solo artists before connecting – both musically and personally – in Charleston, South Carolina. While they’d both had burgeoning solo careers (Cary Ann earned kudos for her 2006 album Dust and Bones, Michael with his band, The Films, as well as his own solo outings), they quickly found that both their voices – which entwine with eerie beauty in their haunting harmonies – and philosophies matched up perfectly, and a beautiful partnership was born.

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

Hundreds of NC artists display their work in one of the largest shows. Come on out and see what the State's talented do. This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch. Marc's song "Home" was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc's vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come. Marc inked a deal with Vanguard records in July 2012 and will be writing and recording this fall. He will be releasing an LP early 2013 as well as touring extensively.

Art Exhibit: School Pride
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.
Art Exhibit: State of the Art/Art of the State
Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.

Discovering Drayton Hall with George McDaniel

Bellamy Mansion Museum , Downtown Wilmington
503 Market St.
(910) 251-3700
Executive Director George McDaniel is our guest for a lecture on one of the east coast's premier historic sites. This is how the National Trust, owners of Drayton Hall, describe it: Drayton Hall is different. It’s the real thing, and we are bound by our mission to preserve the property—that is, to keep it in near-original condition just as the National Trust received it from the Drayton family in 1974. Instead of being restored to the vision of those who lived centuries after it was built, Drayton Hall is an artifact that has survived the American Revolution, the Civil War, the earthquake of 1886, hurricanes like Hugo, and maybe most surprisingly today, urban sprawl. On top of that, it’s not just that it’s a survivor. The main house is considered one of the finest examples of Georgian-Palladian architecture in the United States. The grounds represent one of the most significant, undisturbed historic landscapes in America. And Drayton Hall’s stories—stories of race, family, culture, sacrifice, innovation, and preservation—reveal who we are and where we’ve come from. This lecture promises to be enlightening on house museums in general and one unique site in particular.

Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers made a needle’s-eye leap onto the national music circuit in 2012, bringing with them a refreshing sound, spirited stage show and wellspring of good vibes, along with a turntable and milk crates stocked with their favorite vintage vinyl for backstage sustenance. Now, the San Francisco-based band and its striking front woman with a girl-next-door demeanor step out with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, a luminous, heartfelt patchwork of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and show-stopping soul, punctuated with fresh four-part harmonies, crisp rock guitar and Nicki’s soaring, nuanced vocals that some critics say remind them of Linda Ronstadt. The first record under the banner of the full band, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers is very much a family album, featuring 11 new songs penned by the band members, arranged and produced by Nicki’s husband and the band’s musical director, Tim Bluhm, and recorded at the Bluhm’s Mission Bells studio in San Francisco.

(910) 769-4096
It’s been nearly 20 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock ‘n’ roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock ‘n’ roll back — back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins. Full of spit and swagger — and a “dirty” sense of humor to boot — Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl’s live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract. The 1992 self-titled debut album went platinum and featured notable rock radio hits like “Down On Me,” “When Will It Rain,” “I Stand Alone” and, most notably, “The Lumberjack,” during which vocalist Jesse James Dupree performed a chain-saw solo. Dupree’s chain-saw escapades on album and in concert became one of many Jackyl trademarks. With the release of ‘Jackyl’ hit the road and barely left it since. Just long enough to record new albums. Touring mates in those early days included Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. 1993 saw “Mental *@%.!” featured on ‘The Beavis & Butt-head Experience,’ a compilation album of songs tied in with MTV’s hit cartoon series; it was eventually certified triple platinum. 1994 was one of the most important years in the band’s career. The second album, ‘Push Comes To Shove,’ hit the streets and went gold. That August, Jackyl turned in one of the most acclaimed performances at Woodstock ’94 in Saugerties, NY, and the resulting double album ‘Woodstock 94′ went platinum and included “Headed For Destruction” (a track from ‘Push Comes To Shove’). The live recording ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ was released exclusively in Europe on Mayhem Records in 1996.

In observation of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) Cameron Art Museum, in collaboration with Countywide Community Development Corporation of Navassa, NC presents the exhibition School Pride: The Eastern NC Story An Installation by Willie Cole June 29-November 2, 2014. Nationally renowned artist Willie Cole is creating new installations investigating the closing of sixteen Cape Fear area schools and other aspects of desegregation in southeastern NC and its impact statewide. Cole states that the visual intent of this exhibition is to create “a multi-gallery installation that reflects the real or physical history of desegregation in North Carolina through the use of conceptual or emotional triggers and historical documents.” Cole will look deeply into historical and found objects – from students who attended these schools, from regional museums, and from area families. Together, the juxtaposition of these objects will demonstrate a powerful narrative of the struggle of a community for equality in education. In their search for source material, museum staff and volunteers have spent hours digitizing photographs from alumni and teachers from these schools. Ultimately, the story that has emerged is one of pride: school pride, community pride, and pride in the battle well fought for educational equality.

Cameron Art Museum, Midtown Wilmington
3201 S. 17th St.
(910) 395-5999
One of the coolest and most unique exhibitions in the State. Hundreds of NC artists all provide one work of art for this exhibit. Come and see what our talented neighbors are up to: This event pays homage to the open, creative curatorial spirit of the late art world maverick, Walter Hopps (1932-2005). In 1978, responding to a comment from his junior colleague, Deborah Velders (Jensen) about the problems artists face gaining access to notable curators, Walter Hopps conceived an entirely open, unmediated event to remedy the situation. His program invited any artist to bring a single work of art, to meet Hopps, and see installation of work. This event called “36 Hours” occurred in a gritty, street-level alternative space called MOTA (Museum of Temporary Art), located in downtown Washington, D.C. There was no jurying, no selection (or rejection), and no entry fee. The only restrictions were size, weight, and the delivery time frame (36 hours). This unprecedented opportunity for artists was covered by the Washington Post, and attracted over 400 works of art, all by artists living and working in the Washington, D.C. area.
