Thesis Lecture: Faces of Courage

Thursday, 8/10/2017
6:30PM-8:00PM  
Sharon Wozniak-Spencer, artist in resident with The Hope Center and CAM intern has worked the past year and a half with those in need in the Wilmington downtown area at The Hope Center and Walking Tall Wilmington. The series that she has created is called “Faces of Courage”. Sharon is attending the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, completing her MFA program in figurative painting this August. The series she has completed is based on those who are in need in the Wilmington area.

“As someone who has studied realistic figurative painting throughout graduate school, I have realized that what excites me as an artist is bringing attention to the positive work of our community. I try to create my portraits and figurative work in a way that speaks to those who observe them. My work deals with reality in a way that has a positive impact on others. Before creating my art, I get to know those in need, homeless, displaced, and the volunteers. The work that I have created has a sense of dignity, beauty, and hope.”

Admission is free of charge, donations are appreciated for the Living Arts Scholarship Fund

Group Singing: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 8/27/2017
1:30PM-4:00PM  
1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners
2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all
Songbooks provided, beginners welcome!

Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers (http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp) presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.

The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org. Free and open to the public, Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
