Creative Spark Center for the Arts presents its highly anticipated annual fall fundraiser, Art on the Beach & Chefs in the Kitchen on Sunday, Nov. 10 from 1 to 5 p.m. This afternoon tour of Sullivan’s Island homes and studios features more than 25 artists selling their creations along with chef demonstrations and tastings. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 the day of the event and are available online at www.creativespark.org, by phone at 881-3780, at Sandpiper Gallery and at Everyday Gourmet.
Art on the Beach & Chefs in the Kitchen poster artist Carol McGill is an “experimenter with a distinctive style” who owes her inspiration to the inventive imagery of Matisse, the plein air subtleties of Monet and the high contrast color creations of Van Gogh. McGill’s use of lush oils, which she manipulates with a knife or brush, creates a work of passion and movement. Her work has won her several prestigious awards, including 2011 Best Local Artist by Popular Voice and 2009 and 2010 Piccolo Spoleto One Woman Show awards.
Patrons can earn a commemorative glass by spending $100 or more on art and enjoy bottomless champagne all day at Salt at Station 22. Other participating restaurants are Old Village Post House, the Co-op, Amuse, Henry’s Crab Cakes, Joe’s Catering, Everyday Gourmet and Chef Jane Smith. Sponsors of this event also include Sandpiper Gallery and InTown.com.
