We will be hosting our Residents Social in conjunction with the Tapp's Art Project this month. It will occur on November 4th, from 5-9 pm, at 1644 Main Street. We will be handing out free drink passes for the residents from 5:30-7:30 pm.

Join us at Tapp’s to meet artists, view original artwork and enjoy live demonstrations and local music. This month The White Mule will be providing food and a cash bar! We are excited to join Frame of Mind, S&S Art Supply, Columbia Museum of Art and others in this rapidly growing, creativity-filled event series. Our first event at Tapp’s on October 7th was fantastic! We hope that was only the first of many artful events to come!...

This month we will “Reveal” the Window Installation Series! Local artists, art groups and businesses will use the Tapp’s windows to create a unique installation of their artwork.

And in the interior windows are Pat Stone, Jefferson Vimana, Alex Smith, Half Moon Pottery and Nancy Kauffman. The windows will remain on display for two months to promote the Tapp’s Window Installation Series and the participating artists.

Frame of Mind's Art Series is back in November

Michael Krajewski. Need we say more? Be ready for a wild ride and expect the unexpected. We will be presenting all things Krajewski, from drawings and paintings to photowork to music videos from his new band Snowman & the Pitch (who happen to have some garage tapes being released very soon). We also are going to mix up the outdoor stage with a combo of street performers. Tribe SK, VerseWorks, and Fire In Motion are all collaborating on a show designed to keep your attention and knock you on your butt. And all of this is sponsored by Gervais and Vine, who will be on hand with some fabulous wines for your tasting pleasure.

Anastasia & Friends will have an exhibit that features a group exhibition of sculpture, paintings and mixed media by Claude Buckley, Sean Williams, Roger Hutchison and Anastasia Chernoff. Also, the gallery is collaborating with ETV for one of their Carolina Stories’ documentaries about legendary advertising savant, Elliott White Springs. His provocative advertising slant is said to have changed the entire approach of the country’s advertising industry. Dana McCullough, from ETV, will present some of Springs art and artifacts during the opening and thus will be providing a sneak peek at some of the work that is in the documentary airing on Thursday, Nov. 18th at 9 pm on SCETV.

S&S Art Supply presents FITE KLUB’S FIRST ANNUAL 80′S BABIES POST HALLOWEEN GALLERY BASH!

And since it’s a post Halloween bash…that doesn’t mean the costumes should go back to the store…come out dressed in your best (or most ridiculous) 80′s attire.
