TEDxCreativeCoast streaming live

I should have thought of posting this earlier today, but for the afternoon you can watch/listen to the stream of TEDxCreativeCoast: Watch live streaming video from tedxcreativecoast at livestream.com Here’s the remaining schedule (and they are on schedule): 12:24 –…

Google celebrates Martha Graham’s 117th birthday

I’ve been a huge fan of modern dance for many years — and I’m sorry that one consequence of living in Savannah is the relative rarity with which major companies are anywhere in the vicinity. So it was really nice…

If Spoleto is so good, why are the official festival posters so bad?

Another year, another intriguing Spoleto USA lineup, another bad poster. I love Spoleto and am looking forward to spending at least one day at the Charleston festival again this year. Last year’s performance of I Can See Myself in Your…

An update on box office for “The Conspirator”

A few weeks ago, when Robert Redford’s Savannah-made The Conspirator was released, I posted my own review as well as two roundups of other reviews (here and here). After a promising limited release with a high per theater average, the…

The new gallery 1704Lincoln opens its doors on Friday, May 6th with Cain Powers Sandoz, an exhibit featuring three well-established and widely collected Savannah painters: Betsy Cain, Blanche Powers, and Katherine Sandoz. The space is owned by Powers, who used…

Some pics from SCAD’s 2011 Sidewalk Arts Festival

A gorgeous day for the 2011 edition of this 30-year old festival. The people watching is quite amazing. I was playing with some different settings on my camera to try to make up for some extreme shadows, but it didn’t…

Photographer Lisa M. Robinson looks to the sea in “Oceana”, new work unveiled this week at Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn

A few years ago, walking down Abercorn Street, I was absolutely mesmerized by a photograph visible through the window at Jack Leigh Gallery. The background was almost white, a pale gray, with a sprinkling of small brightly colored rectangles arranged…

SCAD’s Silver & Ink photo show scheduled for April 30th

One of the easily missed highlights of spring in Savannah is the chance to see the end-of-year exhibitions of work by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design. These shows are typically well-publicized and listed in all the…

Solid opening weekend for “The Conspirator”

A few previous posts about The Conspirator: my review, one roundup of reviews, and another slightly more positive roundup of reviews. In its opening weekend, the Robert Redford directed film finished 9th at the box office and is estimated to…

Another roundup of “The Conspirator” reviews

I’ve already posted some links and short excerpts from some of the key reviews of The Conspirator. I wrote about it here. One of the film’s crew sent me some other suggested reviews that she thought put the film in…

A roundup of reviews for “The Conspirator”

I already posted my own review of The Conspirator here. I thought it would be interesting to look at few other reviews. In The New Yorker, Anthony Lane complains a bit about the overly obvious parallels to today: “one wishes…

Cathy Solomons chosen interim director at Telfair Museums

Ever since Steven High rather suddenly announced that he was resigning from his post as director of the Telfair Museums (the Telfair Academy, Jepson Center for the Arts, and Owens-Thomas House) to take over the Ringling Museum of Art in…

A review: Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator”

One of the most interesting — and perhaps most perilous — artistic choices is obvious in the opening moments of The Conspirator, which will be released nationwide on April 15th. There’s a great action story that could be told here…

Official trailer for “The Conspirator”

I saw this at the Savannah Film Festival a few months ago and will post a mini-review before it’s released. Enjoy: The Conspirator: Official Site: Directed by Robert Redford.
