  • Artistic Furniture Makeover

    August 23, 2014Saturday and Sunday, August 23 and 24
    Noon - 4:00 p.m.

    Add some spunk to your junk and create a functional work of art by customizing a small piece of furniture to reflect your own style. This class will teach you how to turn your old, tired furniture into something adorable and artistic that you can be proud of for years!

    In this two-day, hands-on class you will learn:
    • How to prep both finished and unfinished furniture
    • The types of paint available for use and how to apply them
    • The tools needed to complete your project from start to finish
    • How to accessorize your piece with decoupage, stamping and other materials

    No experience needed; this class fits all skill levels. You will need to bring a small table, bookcase, or other piece of furniture smaller than 30" x 30" that you are able to lift and carry into the classroom. The class will provide access to the paints, tools, and techniques needed to complete your project.

  • CMA Jazz on Main: An Evening with Nelson Rangell

    September 12, 2014Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
    Concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

    "Jazziz" magazine writes that Nelson Rangell is "an artist of depth, a master of song, and an improviser non pareil." The Times of London notes "his extraordinary facility on a range of instruments and his undoubted virtuosity," adding that Nelson is "one of fusion's most accomplished exponents."

    Such praise is a confirmation of what contemporary jazz fans have known since the Denver based saxophonist emerged in the late 80s: that Rangell is one of the most exciting and diverse performers in the genre, equally adept at soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone, as well as being a genuine virtuoso on flute and piccolo.

    Nelson Rangell will join the Noel Freidline Trio for an amazing evening of contemporary and straight ahead jazz.

    Presented by Family Medicine Centers of South Carolina
