The Jig Is Up - St. Patrick's Celebration on Glenwood South

Someone launches a 1 hour delivery service? We party. (Thank you, Amazon Prime.) UNC is Number 1 in the ACC? We party. So who would have thought St. Paddy's Day, honoring the patron saint of whiskey shots... would be lackluster?

Here to see it done right, Glenwood South is the place to be on this St. Patrick's Weekend!

Two Birds, One Stone - March 19th Openings at NCMA

When it comes to this tweet, NCMA's upcoming exhibitions are the word. American Impressionist and Marks of Genius are ticketed together and begin on March 19th. Yes, two exhibits, one ticket price! Pure genius!

American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isle of Shoals
March 19, 2016−June 19, 2016

Childe Hassam is celebrated as the foremost American impressionist painter. Among his greatest achievements are the hundreds of paintings he created over nearly 30 summers on Appledore Island in the Isles of Shoals, a cluster of rocky islands off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire.

This exhibition, jointly organized with the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts, will feature 39 of Hassam's finest Shoals paintings in oil and watercolor, borrowed from major public and private collections. The paintings in American Impressionist will be arranged as if one were walking around the island-emphasizing that the place is as interesting as the artist.
"Hassam's paintings possess a rapturous sense of place," said John Coffey, NCMA deputy director for art and curator of American and modern art. "In his pictures you not only see but feel the blue Atlantic breaking against rocky ledges and swirling in tidal pools, the dense thickets of laurel wedged in granite crags, a splendid island garden with its gem-like blossoms, and the whole island world suffused with a silvered northern light. In this exhibition we invite visitors to explore the island in Hassam's footsteps, and hope that they find the same enchantment that inspired one of America's great painters more than a century ago."
Marks of Genius: 100 Extraordinary Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art
March 19, 2016−June 19, 2016

Marks of Genius features 100 of the most important drawings from the superlative collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The selection of drawings, watercolors, gouaches, and pastels dating from the Middle Ages to the present includes examples by such masters as Guercino, Annibale Carracci, Romare Bearden, Edgar Degas, Egon Schiele, Emil Nolde, Henri Matisse, Roy Lichtenstein, Vincent Van Gogh, and Ed Ruscha.

This eye-opening exhibition illuminates the historical and ongoing role of drawing as a means of study, observation, and problem solving; as an outpouring of the artist's imagination; and as a method of realizing a finished work of art. Including such diverse drawings as illuminated manuscripts and modern preparatory sketches, Marks of Genius presents a glimpse into artists' minds.

"Whether in a preparatory sketch, documentary rendering, figure study, or fully realized work in its own right, the immediacy and vibrancy of a drawing make it a pleasure to behold," said Dennis Weller, NCMA curator of Northern European Art and curator in charge of this exhibition. "The works featured in Marks of Genius demonstrate not only these qualities but showcase the tremendous skill and discipline of the artists represented."

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
