Saturday, 2/27/2021
11:30AM-1:30PM  
Bluegrass and brunch -- what could be better? The Wilmington Bluegrass Instructor Band is a band formed from the instructors of the new Wilmington Bluegrass School. Aiming to get more people, young and old, playing bluegrass music, the Wilmington Bluegrass School offers individual lessons (currently virtual) and regularly occurring jams. At CAM on Saturday they will be performing some bluegrass classics with a full four piece band! The band features Marshall Brown, Jones Smith, Wes Chappell, and Perry Hewlett. These great musicians can be seen around town playing in their bands the Smokey Dunes, the Folkstone String Band, Massive Grass, and Masonboro Sound.

Live @ CAM: The Smoky Dunes

Sunday, 2/28/2021

The Smoky Dunes are a local musical duo from right here in Wilmington, NC. Their musical repertoire and style draws on classic bluegrass artists such as Doc Watson and Tony Rice as well as finger-picking pioneers Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. While they are both partial to their Martin guitars, they've been known to pick up a mandolin and a banjo. Whether it's on the porch or at a venue around town, The Smoky Dunes provide an eclectic set of music not often heard around Wilmington

Our Place in This World: Thomas Cole

Sunday, 3/7/2021
2:30PM-3:30PM  
Virtual Class - American Landscape Artists- Thomas Cole
with instructor Luc Travers

The goal of this series is to immerse ourselves into the worlds created by these artists, sensually, emotionally, and intellectually. We'll learn techniques for getting the most out of enjoying landscape paintings (including the use of music to enhance the mood of the landscape). We'll look deeply into each artist's world and examine what they had to say about our relationship with nature and our relationship with the universe. And we'll explore how the ideas in their landscapes reflected their personal lives and philosophies.

Virtual Class: Rock, Paper Stitches

Saturday, 3/13/2021
10:00AM-11:00AM  
Virtual Class: Rock, Paper Stitches: Joomchi and Embroidery with Jan Wutkowski
'Rock' two slow-process crafts in one unique class! Day 1 will concentrate on learning an ancient Korean paper craft to create a 'felted' paper called joomchi. Joomchi utilizes layers of thin hanji papers that, through agitation and manipulation, create a sturdy piece that can be used alone or in other artistic endeavors. One such endeavor will be achieved on Day 2. Taking the previous day's joomchi pieces, you'll use simple hand stitches for mark making, to add found objects, or to stitch several joomchi together for a larger, dramatic piece of finished paper art. (This is not a paper making class.)
Adult: All Levels -
Friday intro 6pm; Workshop Saturday March 13-14, 10am-4pm, and Sunday noon-4pm
CAM member: $144; Non-member: $180


IN PERSON: Felted Landscapes

Saturday, 3/13/2021
10:00AM-1:00PM  
Instructor: September Krueger

Inspired by Elizabeth Bradford, we will take a look at the beauty of the coastal landscape where we live. We will use soft, colored wool roving to "paint" an image of your own design. With just warm water and lots of squishing, you will take wispy strands of wool and make an image you can hang on the wall. Wet felting even makes a finished piece of cloth that can be embellished with stitching, or transformed into a usable object. A kit will be provided with the materials necessary for felting a an image from your 8.5 x 11' photograph. We will discuss image selection and go through the basic felting technique. We will also discuss options for hanging.

Join them for brunch at CAM Cafe. Reservations suggested. Call 910-777-2363
