Sculptures for Home & Garden by Stephen Kishel

November and December 2012 in the gallery at ARTworks: contemporary sculpture for your garden, walls and ceilings. Sculptor Stephen Kishel creates contemporary works in metal that moves, with lines that float and flow. His three part show at ARTworks in Beaufort is an exciting look at form that dramatically, and colorfully, stands, hangs, and reaches.

Friday, November 23: opening of “Sculpture for your Walls” phase, meet the artist at the reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

Friday, December 14: Opening of “Mobiles: sculpture for your Ceilings” phase, meet the artist at the reception from 6-8 p.m.

“The Misanthrope” by Molière will be at the black box theater at ARTworks November 8-11 and 15-18.

What’s worse than being the only (self-proclaimed) honest man in a world of liars, gossips, and fools? Being head-over-heels in love with the chief offender among them. “The Misanthrope” follows the hilariously thorny love-life of the irascible Alceste and the coquettish Célimène, who put the concept of “opposites attract” to the ultimate test. “The Misanthrope” is produced by Palmetto Theater Xperiment and directed by J.W. Rone, from an original translation by Beaufortonian Daniel H. Daniels from the French verse. The play will be November 8 -10 at 7:30 p.m.; November 11 at 3 p.m.; November 15-17 at 7:30 p.m.; November 18 at 3 p.m. For tickets, 379-2787 and www.artworksinbeaufort.org: $17 per person, $12 for students, $7 for children (12 and under) and $12 for groups of 10 or more. Thursdays are Pay What You Can ($5 minimum.) ARTworks is located in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary St.

Studios for Artists

A studio at ARTworks means a dedicated space to create, in an environment that is designed to incubate arts careers and arts businesses.

“Out in the community right now,” explained JW Rone, executive director of ARTworks, “we have 30 artists and 10 businesses that incubated in our studio program. Attention usually goes to bigger programs for that kind of economic development, but we’ve been quietly growing these small businesses that are so vital to tourism and the economy as a whole.”

ARTworks is accepting applications from artists who are interested in a dedicated, affordable studio in order to thrive, grow, take risks and make daring choices. To learn more about the studios and resident artist program, contact the arts office to make an appointment: 843-379-2787.
