The Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art starts this week!
It is the mission of the festival to create and enhance cultural awareness and enrich the quality of life for residents and visitors by providing quality performances, programs, and educational opportunities in music and the arts.
The first event is the WEARABLE ART LUNCHEON, a festival fund raiser held at Tommy Bahama Restaurant at Market Commons, Thursday, September 27 from 11:00 – 1:30. The $30 luncheon will feature a strolling fashion show with hot new trends as well as wearable art and jewelry from local artists. You can shop for unique art, jewelry, hats, scarves and fabulous gifts in the silent auction. This event is a fundraiser for the Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Art.
50% of the net proceeds help fund the Kathy Bryan Metts Visual Arts Scholarship. Kathy, a former DeBordieu resident grew up in Burlington, NC and came to be one of the best known artists of the South Carolina lowcountry. She passed away in 2006 at the age of fifty-nine from cancer. The Kathryn Bryan Metts Scholarship for the Visual Arts will be awarded to a student from either Georgetown County, SC, or Alamance County, NC, beginning this year. We have so many talented youngsters in the Pawleys Island area….. I hope one of our kids win!
