MEET THE AUTHOR SERIES PRESENTS CLARA SILVERSTEIN: SEPTEMBER 4, 2018

The author of four books including A White House Garden Cookbook and White Girl: A Story of School Desegregation. A long-time writer in the Boston area, she directed the well-known Chautauqua Writers’ Center from 2008 to 2017. Her first novel, Secrets in a House Divided, is forthcoming from Mercer University Press in the fall of 2018. Set in Richmond, Virginia in 1864-65, it explores the relationships between masters and slaves, husbands and wives, parents and children, as the Civil War drives them to a flashpoint. Though the story is set in the past, its focus on the roots of racism resonates today.

J. Ford Bookshop will be selling copies of Ms. Silverstein’s book at the event, and we encourage you to purchase your book at the coffee so you can have it signed by the author. Our local independent bookstore makes many of our author appearances possible. Too many books? Why not purchase one, read it, then donate it to our book sale or the library?

MotteThomas_GlynnVisualArts

MOTTE THOMAS EXHIBIT: SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 – OCTOBER 12, 2018

Glynn Visual Arts is proud to present Wax Poetic, an exhibition of encaustic works by Motte Thomas. A culmination of five years of the artist’s work, this will be first time this collection has been shown on the east coast.

The work reveals natural and botanical shapes using colors and forms that are at the same time reminiscent of and incongruent with nature. Thomas uses a pointillist style and layering technique in his work which begs to be viewed both up close and at a distance. Multiple layers of gently woven strokes are built upon each other using properties such as color, texture and material composition to envelope and draw in the viewer. The translucent colors and deep textures construct the familiar organic shapes often observed in nature. The flowing lines, shapes and swirls are built up into three-dimensional forms creating a stunning visual poetry.

Thomas creates a dream-like lyricism and surreal quality which belies the subconscious reflection in these other worldly, yet grounded works. His works have been exhibited in Colorado, Houston, TX, Santé Fe, NM, Atlanta and Brunswick, GA. All works are for sale through Glynn Visual Arts. Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Glynn Visual Arts: 106 Island Drive, St. Simons Island, GA 31522. For more info, call (912) 638-8770.
