‘Witness to History’
As part of the forthcoming 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of desegregation in South Carolina public education, the Gibbes Museum of Art is showcasing an iconic collection of Civil Rights Era photographs by acclaimed photographer James Karales.

“If you are familiar with Charleston artists, then you probably already know the name Lynne Riding. The established artist has shown her ethereal abstract paintings in countless galleries, but it is only recently we learned of her previous beginnings in fashion illustration. In her early career, Riding earned a BA in Fashion & Textiles from Manchester College of Art and held teaching positions at the London College of Fashion and Falmouth School of Art. Riding worked as a designer in London, but always loved the drawing side of business. Working as a freelance illustrator, she gathered big name clients like H&M, Topshop, and Harvey Nichols—names that are still synonymous with cutting edge fashion today…..”

Rebekah Jacob is plugged as one of the top progressives in Charlie Mag. As Zwiker writes, “Rebekah Jacob secured its place on the must-see list for local and visiting art collectors long ago. And it’s only getting better. First, there’s Rebekah Jacob herself: poised, fiercely intelligent, passionate about art. There there are the painters, photographers and sculptors: we’re talking stop-you-in-your-tracks talent. Because that’s what art, the best of it, does. It makes you stop. And look. And forget about everything else. ”In curating The Intuitive Eye, the overall goal was to include well-known artists such as Brian Rutenberg and Kevin Taylor, who have both exhibited internationally and had their works included in major museum, corporate, and private collections,” says Rebekah Jacob. “Our secondary goal was to select newly discovered, cutting-edge photographers that carry themselves and their work masterfully. Cyle Suesz and Ben Gately Williams are two stunning examples.” Read more…

The Rebekah Jacob Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina will be presenting on 8 November, one night only, “Andy Warhol- Factory Films” with the collaboration of the Terrace Theater. The experimental films of the American pop-artist Andy Warhol date from the 1960s and reflect the diversity of the artist in the field of cinema.
Most of the films were inspired by the characters that used to go to Warhol’s well-known loft studio, that he called “The Factory” and also by the underground films of Ron Rice and Taylor Mead. His films were, and still are considered as voyeuristic, hilarious, and even though he used a static camera they show the artist boldness for film.
The screening will display three short films and will begin at 7pm. Tickets are available onwww.terracetheater.org. There will also be limited-edition prints of Warhol’s themes in commemoration of the event, available directly at the gallery or through the gallery’s online shop. Read more…
