The author researched the Jekyll’s story to learn about the people who designed, constructed, and managed the enormous transformation and he tells the fascinating story of the island, sharing facts from history books, primary documents, and untold stories from locals who have lived on the land for several decades. Discover how a private, secluded, and exclusive island came to be a state park with open and affordable access to everyone.

A long-time writer in the Boston area, she directed the well-known Chautauqua Writers’ Center from 2008 to 2017.

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.

Spring arrives in style this April as Glynn Visual Arts hosts their 24th annual Art in the Park Fine Art & Craft festival. Over 70 talented artists & skilled crafts people from around the region display an impressive & eclectic collection of handmade artwork. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of 2 dimensional art, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, photography, textiles, wood, metal & glass. Homegrown beauty products, botanicals & gourmet goodies are also available to delight the senses. A great selection of food vendors serving freshly prepared eats will be available as well. Music, kid’s craft activities & a bicycle treasure hunt, known as “Pedal for Treasure” make this a fun, family friendly event. This festival is held in the beautiful live oak covered Postell Park in the heart of the Pier village, just steps from the ocean on St Simons Island, GA.

Find out how it is made! Throughout the weekend blacksmithing demonstrations will be given on site by a talented family of artists. Attendees will also enjoy the opportunity to meet the artists & connect with them about their artwork. “Shoppers are given the chance to support small businesses, meet the artists & even learn how their new handmade piece of art was made. This makes the ownership or giving of a handcrafted piece truly special”, notes Hannah Roberts, GVA’s Festival Director.

This festival has something for everyone, including the youngest of visitors. The Kid’s “Creation Station” celebrates the smallest artists with free craft activities.

Glynn Visual Arts will again host “Pedal for Treasure” on Sunday afternoon, a bicycle scavenger hunt looking for local visual art. Individuals or groups of two or three are provided clues and a map for a $10 entry fee. The route is an easy loop near the Village area. Last year’s participants were enthusiastic about their adventure – and competitive too! Prizes were awarded for the most correct answers, the best team name, and the best time to finish. All are encouraged to come early for lunch in the park and shop the festival before and after the scavenger hunt.

The Purple Xperience is just that—an experience. A dazzling purple-tinged performance that embodies the spirit and sounds of the legendary and iconic Prince.

But more than that, The Purple Xperience is a shockingly authentic tribute band that brings the memories of Prince and The Revolution to life to audiences of all ages and all generations.
