Steve Jameson: Ode to the Grand Strand
May 26 - September 13, 2015
Steve Jameson's representations of iconic Myrtle Beach landscapes provide a lasting impression of the Grand Strand's cultural history and evolution. Jameson has painted scores of old, orginal homes up and down the strand, mostly in Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach. He spends hours surveying each structure, analyzing its composition, color, light and space to create an authentic watercolor or oil depiction conveying a specific time and place. Most of the houses he's painted have since been torn down.
Before I Die
May 26 - September 29, 2015
After losing someone she loved, artist Candy Chang painted the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood in New Orleans with chalkboard paint and stenciled the sentence, " Before I die I want to ______." WithinÂ a day of the wall's completion, it was covered in colorful chalk dreams as neighbors stopped and reflected on their lives. Since then, more than 500 Before I Die walls have been created in over 65 countries and over 30 languages by passionate people all over the world.
