ART PATROL: Beth Logan recommends

Encaustic artist Tobia Makeover’s “No -Man’s-Land,” a one-night installation curated by the illustrious creative Marcus Kenney, is this Friday, May 6. Makeover says, “I asked Marcus to come to my studio to ask what he thought of me having a show in my own space. He looked around and said that the space was not worthy of the work.” Instead, the installation will be under the majestic oaks in the beautiful private gardens of 67 West Bluff Drive on Isle of Hope. An art happening not to be missed.

Abstract painter Janet Bailey holds a BFA from the University of Kansas School of Fine Arts. Recently relocated from Topeka, she has a one-woman show “Connected Spaces” at 208 Wine Bar, 208 East Bay Street during May. The opening reception is Tuesday, May 10 from 6-8 pm and selected work will hang through June 5. 

The Arts Initiative at Palmetto Bluff’s Artist of the Month for May is Savannah’s Brandon Price of Blown Studios. An Ohio native, Blown Studios is quickly becoming a premier source for glass art and education in the southeast. There will be a welcome reception on Wednesday, May 18 and Price will teach glassblowing workshops on May 19, May 20, and May 21. Ticket information at
