SANKOFA: IF STITCHES COULD TALK: FEBRUARY 4, 2020 – MARCH 6, 2020

Glynn Visual Arts celebrates Black History Month with, Sankofa: If Stitches Could Talk, a new exhibition featuring works by Atlanta artist, Tracie Lee Hawkins. The word “Sankofa” is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “go back and get it”, representing the need to reflect on the past to build a successful future. This concept is evident in Hawkins’ work.

Through a series of quilts designed and created each year of the Obama Presidency as well as other historic Civil Rights themes, Hawkins documents and makes commentary on our recent history through her stitches.

Hawkins has been published in the International Review of African American Art, Hampton Virginia in 2010, and exhibited her historic Obama collection at the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture at Alabama State University in 2012. Her completed collection of Obama quilts was exhibited at Alabama State University Warren/Britt Gallery in 2013.

TWO ON THE AISLE, THREE IN A VAN: DATES VARY BETWEEN MARCH 7, 2020 – MARCH 22, 2020

“Two On The Aisle, Three In A Van” is a comedy where the point of view comes from the unsung heroes who call the shows, man the spotlights, sew the costumes, count the tickets and suffer through every flubbed line, forgotten prop and missed cue.

Due to the lack of wing space, the company spends their downtime in the parking lot around an aging hippie/now turned techie’s van. Egos and obstacles fall into the lap of Mike, the nice guy director, who ends up with more than he bargained for.

Anyone who has ever seen a show or has done a show may know these people. In the end, “Two On The Aisle, Three In a Van” continues to prove the old adage that some way, somehow, the show must go on. And it does…just not always as planned.

3/7/2020, 3/8/2020, 3/13/2020, 3/14/2020, 3/15/2020, 3/20/2020, 3/21/2020, 3/22/2020

AN EVENING WITH GEORGE WINSTON: MARCH 9, 2020

George Winston is undeniably a household name. He’s inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing. Winston’s music is evocative, offering us all a chance to take a step back from our perpetually busy lives and let our minds adventurously wander.

George Winston’s classic albums, Autumn and December, are perennial favorites, along with Winter into Spring, Summer, 2017’s Spring Carousel – A Cancer Research Benefit, as well as two volumes of the compositions of Vince Guaraldi, two volumes of benefit albums for the Gulf Coast disasters, and six other solo piano albums. He just released his 15th solo piano album, Restless Wind, via Dancing Cat Records/RCA Record. Restless Wind is a portrayal of Winston’s place in a chaotic world – his compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace. The album is available now at GeorgeWinston.com

Historic Ritz Theatre: 1530 Newcastle St., Corner Of F Street, Brunswick, GA 31520. 7:30 PM. $35.  For more info, click here.

WARRIOR WOMEN EVOLVING: MARCH 10, 2020 – APRIL 11, 2020

Alice Woodruff’s exhibition of ceramic figurative sculpture opens at Glynn Visual Arts on Tuesday, March 10th with a special preview opening for women only. Men will get their chance at the GVA’s regular opening reception for the show on Thursday March 12th.   “Warrior Women Evolving” features female vessels that represent famous and unknown women. All are portraits of extraordinary strength and wisdom.  Some of the nude figures are draped, others have an “open belly” in which a tableau from their life is displayed. Each figure has written history and story that accompanies the art. Much of the work is highly politicized and emotion-driven, in many cases created in response to conditions in the larger world such as the #METOO movement and the threat to women’s lives, safety and happiness. The body of work, as a whole, explores the evolution of female empowerment from helpless victim to weaponized champion, the value of “women’s work” as well as more personal stories of cancer and motherhood. This exhibit is particularly important in view of the fact that 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote.

Glynn Visual Arts: 106 Island Drive, St. Simons Island, GA 31522.
