Carol Ann Rose Art Show Friday at Fontenay

Carol Ann Rose, the artist from Chapin SC left her mark on the art world with everything she did. She was a wonderful abstract artist and equally at home with realism. She was experimental yet traditional. Carol Ann was a very diverse artist. She told me once she had been so many things in this life time that she hoped her art would capture it all. Carol Ann Rose the artist we all knew and loved was a happy go lucky woman. But life was not always easy for her. She was valedictorian of her high school graduating class and a skilled medical professional in nursing and in the eye care industry.

Carol Ann Rose was the owner of A Carolina Gallery on Bush River Rd. opened in 2000 and was closed when she became ill in late 2005. I was one of the lucky artists that Carol Ann had sponsored a show for at the gallery. Carol Ann also offered me the opportunity to teach Marketing for Artists at the gallery numerous times over the years. The classes were well attended and Carol Ann often provided refreshments for the students. She liked to have a good time.

"Please join the Fontenay Gallery as they present a retrospective of Carol Ann Rose: teacher, leader, gallery owner, student, national art exhibitor and award winner. She was a former President of the Crooked Creek Art League, Vice President of the Seven Oaks Art League and actively involved in the arts in South Carolina since the early 1990s. In September 2000, She opened A Carolina Gallery where she taught watercolor, drawing and mixed media classes. Her works have been shown in various public buildings and have won numerous awards both locally and nationally including two best of show awards."

I could always count on Carol Ann to be there for any art project. Carol Ann did so much for our local art community as an avid volunteer and now she is gone. This is an opportunity to get a piece of work by her to cherish for ever. I purchased a Carol Ann Rose painting and I love it. I can't help smiling when I see it. It reminds me of the times we both were volunteers for the Wild Women's Tea Party, her husband Tom used this painting as a back drop for all the WWTP Tea Cups. It was one of the few works she ever did on canvas.

"Don't Worry, Be happy!" Come on out and see and treasure the body of work this gifted woman produced! "Opening Reception: Friday, April 25, 20085-7 p.m. at Fontenay2716 Devine Street, Columbia"

Runway Runaway at Columbia Museum of Art

The fashion show of the year with Recycled Materials was held last night at the Columbia Museum of Art on Main St in Columbia. It was a huge success and a great fundraiser! They clearly got a much larger crowd than anticipated. The standing room only crowd featured people of all ages and occupations, besides the typical media and artsy crowd.

Rhett Anders, the brainchild behind the event (along with Columbia Design League) led the intros for the evening. Before the show could begin; he instructed all the audience to say as loud as we could "Hey Bitch". The audience followed suit and out come the well known movie star and diva "Lady Chablis" as entertainment. She performed several dance numbers and a few extra dollar bills slid her way, by enthusiastic fans. (clearly they had seen her before!) The outfit I liked the best was a faded denim ensemble worn for the recycled show. It was ripped and torn and adorned with fringe and layered. The top was a midriff bearing crop top. I'd like to know who designed that outfit. I loved it!

The wonderful collection of designs we saw included many beautiful dresses in all lengths. A very southern plantation style dress was made with wine soaked coffee filters, designed by Matthew Mattox and worn by Tamara Greig for a stunning look. I also liked one of the designs by Bohumila Owensby and worn with attitude by professional model Ashley Bennett made out of soda cans and tabs.

One that was great looking and clearly had a lot of work was designed and worn by Jillian Owens. She was in the top 10, which is an honor but she deserved much more!!! The audience voting for the top 6 was a little confusing; she clearly had the loudest applause. But the background music was loud and it didn't get through to the stage that the audience wanted her to be in the top 6. A whole bunch of people booed when she was eliminated because it was a big mistake. Her dress was made from several old prom dresses and romance novels. It was a very elegant looking dress and her hair was really cool too. Girl; who's your hairstylist?? Loved the overall look!

Paige Haggard was funny talking about her design made of Beer caps. She told the audience "this is from a lot of nights getting hammered both literally and figuratively!" If there were an award for most interesting quote of the night; that would be it!!!

As for most professional in every sense of the word, my vote goes to Jeremy Thomas as designer and model. What makes a look really successful, besides looking good, it should be something people will want to buy and wear. Jeremy's outfit had a great look made with towels, curtains and window blinds and it is a very marketable look. If I had been the judge he would have won Number 1 and Jillian Owens would have won Number 2. BTW, I do not know any of the designers or the models in this show.

Anyway, bitches...that's all I have to say. You'll have to google the internet for photos. I only had my cell phone camera and they didn't come out that good. I am looking forward to the event again next year.

Eboniramm Releases New Book

"Author, Eboniramm Releases New Book,
Within His Star: The Story of Levi Pearson"

"Sunday, April 6, 2008, Columbia, South Carolina – A Renaissance woman, Poetess and Songstress, Eboniramm now embarks on a new career as the Author/Editor of Within His Star: The Story of Levi Pearson.

Eboniramm was born in Manning, S.C. and is a descendant of the Gullah culture of South Carolina’s Low Country. She is a Vocalist; however, her full resume reflects the talents of a true Renaissance woman, as Poet, Vocalist, Educator and now Author.

This debut book is about her great-grandfather, Mr. Levi Pearson, who was a civil rights pioneer. In 1947, Mr. Pearson filed a groundbreaking court case against Clarendon County, South Carolina that sought to obtain bus transportation for the county’s Black public school children. This case ultimately laid the groundwork for the historic 1954, school desegregation case, Brown vs. The Board of Education. Her book title comes from a comment Dr. Benjamin E. Mayes made in reference to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during his eulogy. The voice and tone of the book shows Mr. Pearson’s strong faith and commitment to do the best he could for his family and community. These are lessons we could all learn from to build our own character and community today.

The life of her great-grandfather has always been an inspiration to Eboniramm, as his courage and dedication show his willingness to, “sacrifice so much to obtain simple justice.” So, on Mother’s Day 2005, she embarked on her own personal journey of discovery as she sat at the kitchen of her grandparent’s home listening to her grandfather, Mr. Ferdinand Pearson Sr., share the story of his father, which she now brings to the public at large through the book, Within His Star.

For additional information call, Sufia Giza at 803.738.1060 or to schedule a book signing, please contact Eboniramm at 803.665.7036 or she can be reached by email at"

A Day in the Art World in Columbia SC

Toffee and Diva
photo by Jean Bourque

The art show at Starbucks had a decent turn out considering the rain. Forever the social butterfly, I had to talk to everybody...about their art. When I arrived Joey my video instructor was already there and he had scoped out my art. He said his daughter would love it. Young people do love my work! We made plans to produce my art video and I am so thrilled to have a DVD made!

Later, I stopped by "If" Art Gallery and enjoyed works by Laura Spong!! What a great abstract artist she is! I picked up cards and fliers to distribute for the Open Studios tour for May 3 and 4 in Columbia SC, organized by Wim Roefs. We all must do our part to help get the WORD out.

I delivered fliers at Adesso on Main St. where they were having an Open House. I toured the facility and talked up the Open Studios Tour. Seriously, it looked like an art reception in the lobby... I treated it like it was and inquired about the art. We all agreed the original by Bruce Nellsmith in bright colors of the city was our favorite. The host promised a cook out for the next Open House.

Back at Starbucks, I put fliers out beside my art display. Then I went to West Columbia and talked about Open Studios and passed out more fliers, to the Coffee Shop on State St and The Middle Way a store beside the coffee shop. It smelled great in there, like Nag Champa. The environment made me think of meditation and creating peaceful artwork. There is artwork on their walls by artists, I have yet to meet. (very inspiring, indeed)

At last, I arrive home, unload my car and bring my art stuff back in the house. Toffee and Diva come running to greet me! Suddenly, I am surrounded by puppy love and art. How sweet it is! Have a great weekend and remember love conquers all!!!


Starbucks on Gervais Art Show Now until 4-16-08

Starbucks in the Vista on Gervais St at the corner of Lincoln St. in the heart of downtown Columbia, SC is a little known art venue, but they are a very well known Coffee Shop. What could be better great coffee and great art? I guess having great weather too, but don't let that stop you!!!
With rainy weather threatening to dampen the enthusiastic crowd of art lovers; I wish to remind you all that Starbucks will be giving out free coffee during the art reception for Jean Bourque, Ellin Baskins, Pamela Hall, Chris Hodgson, Karl A. Oglesby and Mark Johnson. So don't let a little rain stop you from coming downtown. Videographer Joey Frazier will stop by to check out the art for possible videos. Show runs until April 16th. Thanks to Jeffrey Day and "The State" newspaper for running it in the newspaper on Friday April 4th!!!

Yours Truly;
