You can’t buy love but you can pay heavily for it! That is if you buy a bachelor at the Charleston Rugby Charity Auction this Thursday at Charleston Aquarium. The event starts at 7pm. And yes, the event is a benefit for Pet Helpers.

Travel fever? Stop by Horton Hayes Fine Art on Friday from 6 to 8pm to view – and take home if you wish – paintings from the new exhibition by the participants in Chris Groves’ and Mark Kelvin Horton’s painting workshop in Italy, The Light and Life of Tuscany.

The workshop took place last May near Siena in the Tuscany region of Italy.  The students spent a week at San Fedele, a restored monastery dating from the 12th century.  Instruction took place on the scenic grounds of the venue as well as in nearby hilltop villages and a local vineyard.  Jealous? You can join Mark and Chris next year!

Over 35 arts organizations, all wonderfully interesting – I know this for sure because I created  posts about all of them, most include a video – will be presented at the Memminger Auditorium on Saturday from noon till 5:30pm. The event is titled “OPEN” – it is an arts expo featuring interactive art booths, street performances, food trucks and much more! The Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts’ greater mission is breaking the barriers to participation in the joy of the arts! So go, learn and participate! The cultural life in Charleston is incredibly rich and diverse, be open to doing something new this year!
