Hope on Goat is an annual fundraiser that was started in 2010. Each year, the popular event benefits a local charity. This year’s Hope on Goat event is scheduled for March 30, 2012 from 2-6pm and all proceeds will benefit the YoArt! Project.
The YoArt! Project’s mission is to enrich the traditional classroom curriculum with media arts programming by partnering with local artists/art organizations to provide youth with comprehensive arts education. YoArt’s projects encourage learning through discovery, discipline, improvisation and technique all in efforts to spark creative thinking.
The 2013 Hope on Goat’s Oyster Roast will host a variety of entertainment including live music, artists, craftsman, amazing food and a silent auction.Tickets are $40 each (children under 12 free) and are available for purchase here. The event will take place rain or shine at the Goat Island Gatherings, Goat Island, Channel Marker 116 on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, just north of the Isle of Palms Marina.
Redux is pleased to announce that Subtle Imperfections: Works by Mark Hosford and Janice Jakielski will open this Friday, Oct. 12th with a reception from 6:30-8pm. Both artists will share the opportunity to talk about their work from 5:30-6:30pm. The opening reception is free and open to the public.
Mark Hosford and Janice Jakielski playfully investigate personal relationships through their work. Hosford’s vibrant and lucid screen prints are representations of his vulnerabilities and human interactions.
Jakielski’s intricately hand crafted bonnet like objects inspired by child hood memories are poetic metaphors of communication. Hosford and Jakielski use a decadent palate to ease the complexities of social interactions and allow the viewer to escape into a fantastical reality. At the opening reception Mark Hosford will have completed Redux’s newest mural.
The Blue Ribbon Revival and Mechanical River with Joel Hamilton will perform live music at the opening reception from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. The Pot Kettle Black food truck will be available for purchased and refreshments.
