We want to begin this post by saying our deepest sympathies go out to the Newsome Family here in Wilmington. On Friday, sixth grader Alex Newsome was hit in the head with a baseball during practice. Alex's injuries were severe and he passed away Friday night. This is one of those we can't understand tragedies and our community is still in shock from the news. Hug your loved ones and keep The Newsomes, Alex's coaches, teammates, classmates and friends in your prayers.
The Arts Council of Wilmington invites you to visit our first Designer Show house, May 2-18, 2014. Some of the area’s finest designers are dramatically transforming interior and exterior spaces of 1909 Gillette Drive, a stately Georgian-styled home overlooking the Cape Fear Country Club Golf Course. There will be a private Preview Party on Friday, May 2, 7 to 10 pm. For tickets to the Designer Show house and/or the Preview Party as well as more information on the event, please visit www.artscouncilofwilmington.org
We are decorating the entry to Designer Show house! Included in
our space is a custom Chinoiserie wallpaper that we designed (donated by Port City Signs and Graphics), a gorgeous Oriental rug from the Gallery of Oriental Rugs, a fretwork lacquered console, a coral Hollywood Regency chandelier and many other stunning pieces. Oh yeah, and in case you missed it and forgot to visit us while we were in the looney bin, a hand-painted leopard runner. Painted by, yours truly. Like us on Facebook for sneak peeks of our space.
Did we mention that many of the items in the show house will be FOR SALE? A portion of the proceeds go to the Arts Council of Wilmington. You don't want to miss it so MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
