BOOMTOWN WAIFS (Kristen Harris + Kelley McLachlan) | 12:10-12:50

The musical union between Kelley [McLachlan] and Kristen [Harris] began in 2012, when the two musicians joined forces as part of the female folk trio The Prairie Willows. Their sound integrated 3-part harmonies, old time fiddle, and sorrowful songwriting. Their music quickly evolved into their now spirited multi-instrumental folk and Americana sound with a soulful twang, featuring an assortment of talented back-up musicians, and, of course, the two leading ladies. The uniting of these strong female vocals with guitar, fiddle and varying other instrumentation gives The Boomtown Waifs a flavor of ruckus and delight that audiences love to be a part of.

JOHN THE REVELATOR (Jake Garrett) | 13:00-13:40

John the Revelator is the solo project of Jacob Garrett. Jacob has been writing songs for over a decade, compiling hundreds of songs, and John the Revelator serves as an outlet for the most raw and intimate portion of them. These songs span from stomp blues to the darkest of country Americana with no forgiveness in between.

The name John the Revelator derives from an old Blind Willie Johnson song, from which Jacob also gets much of his inspiration. John the Revelator simultaneously plays guitar along with a bass drum, snare, and high hat while delivering raw and intimate lyrics with his rare vocal styling: John the Revelator dares to do what many artists won’t attempt. This act is unique, vulnerable, and riveting.

VISUAL ARTS

MICHAEL KRAJEWSKI

Michael Krajewski is a self-taught artist who has shown in numerous galleries, collaborated on large commissioned pieces for museums, painted live at art events and been the subject of magazine and newspaper profiles. His style has been called neo-expressionist and compared to Jean-Michel Basquiat's, though Krajewski is less interested in defining, more interested in producing. He works in mixed media. Most recently, he's had solo shows at the HoFP Gallery, Frame of Mind, and Anastasia & Friends in Columbia, SC. He's participated in a two- man show at the Waterfront Gallery in Charleston and in group shows at 701 Whaley and the Tapp's Art Center in Columbia. In 2011, he taught a summer session at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts. He has also painted murals at the Upstate Children's Museum in Greenville, SC (collaborating with Justice Littlejohn) and for the Columbia Museum of Art (alongside painter Cedric Umoja). He has created set pieces for the Columbia City Ballet and Trustus Theater and painted on the flesh of live models at the What's Love art event in Columbia. In 2012, he painted a mural in reverse, on a window at the Tapp's Art Center; people attending the First Thursday gallery crawl watched the mural reveal itself, while a video camera positioned inside the window provided a live feed of him at work. Krajewski has been the subject of stories in The State newspaper, the Free Times, Jasper Magazine, Undefined ,and skirt! magazine. He is represented by the HoFP Gallery in Columbia, SC.

COREY “ROC BOTTOM” DAVIS


SHELBY LEBLANC

Shelby LeBlanc is a contemporary painter from Columbia, SC. She has participated in solo and group shows throughout Columbia including Izms of Art, Grapes and Gallery, and the inaugural Saki Tumi’s Art (uncorked) event. Shelby’s work has been exhibited around Columbia and Charleston including the Vista Lights, Devine Night out, State Street in Cayce, Spencer Art Gallery in Charleston, SC. In 2018, she painted new murals for Columbia’s London and Lace, Peebles Wing Shack, Dano’s Pizza, Cottontown Brewery, Charleston's Frothy Beard Brewery and Push Digital. She produced illustrations for the children’s book “Stella Finds Her Home,” written by William Baker, which was published and released this year. LeBlanc most recently debuted a fifteen piece, mixed media series, wander.lust, this past fall at Richland Public Library on Assembly and in 2019 she started the year  with a showcase at the 701 Whaley Hallway Gallery and a large scale paper mache octopus project in Charleston, SC.

Much of her works are inspired by the time spent away from home, from the Low Country of South Carolina to her trips to Africa, Costa Rica, Mexico, Europe, and Thailand. She favors acrylic paint for most of her work, however some of her works delve into watercolor, inks, crayon, or mixed media incorporating book pages, maps, or glass. She paints in a variety of styles and mediums over many different subject matters, however her work is always recognizable- beautiful, dramatic, and demands attention.

THOMAS WASHINGTON

Thomas the Younger spent his formative years above the Mason/Dixon line; the rest, below. He grew up in the shadow of Seuss. (They're from the same town in Massachusetts, actually.) Little inspired Thomas more than seeing the study whereinwhich Horton's Who was first heard...thus, art and literature have been as important as air to him. Creating them; escaping INTO them.

Always.

His favorite artists are Moebius, Travis Charest, Alex Ross, Salvador Dali, H. R. Giger, Escher, Humberto Ramos, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci. His favorite writers (in order of brilliance, greatest to least): H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Matthew Woodring Stover, Ann Patchett, Theodore Geisel, Edgar Allen Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Clive Barker, Emily Brontë, Joe Abercrombie, and Neal Stephenson.

If left to his own devices, Thomas would prefer to be a fusion of them all.

His poetry can be found on Facebook (as well as some sketches--they're on his art Page: "The Works Of Water"); some prose, on Wordpress as "thomas the younger".

13. LAURA GARNER HINE | art sales

One of my earliest memories was sitting as a child on the kitchen floor, squinting at a light, and marveling delightfully in the ability to manipulate and distort something into another aesthetic or effect. As I grew older, I always found myself drawn to the process of mark-making. I found I could recreate that same distortion, that same curiosity; a play of light, a twist of a form. A collection of textures and a spectrum of values. I’ve always been so curious, and when I first discovered oil paints, I found they were so curious as well. The myriads of ways in which they can be manipulated, distorted, and bent, I’d met my medium that could serve as a vehicle to help me scratch that old, familiar itch of looking, seeing and breaking down how I observe the beauty in this world. I’ve always been fond of fairy tales, playfulness, and fantasies. I also adore the grotesque and the strange. Things that suspend your categories of logic, aesthetics and qualities which arrest you, and make you pause. Painting is very much this process for me. It is delightful, it lets me play. It is incongruous and hard and completely frustrating at other times. It is meditative, and it suspends me; feet on the ground, head in the sky.

20. KATIE CHANDLER | art sales

Katie Chandler is an artist and educator based in Columbia, SC. She began her artistic career while studying and falling in love with Art History as an undergrad at Winthrop University. Her life took an unexpected path when she decided to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching Art Education at the University of South Carolina – there she became a certified K-12 visual arts educator. Katie’s days are filled with teaching students how to plan and create successful works of art and also making time to create artworks for herself! She has recently been exploring various printmaking methods and also teaching a printmaking course. When making her own art, she sometimes likes to plan out a specific image, but she usually enjoys the opportunity to meditate with the materials and create spontaneous and one-of-a-kind monoprints or paintings. Currently, Katie is experimenting with different painting techniques around color theory, movement, and meditation. These paintings usually go together as a set of paintings playing on balance and energy.

You may have seen me around town at local art festivals, checked out my social media postings, or Etsy listings under the moniker Wiley Girl Studio. If you see me, Katie, or Wiley Girl out and about, say hi and let’s chat about art, cats, and life!
