Join Art Mecca of Charleston on Friday, March 20th from 5:00-8:00pm for their Monthly Artist Reception featuring illustrator and painter, David Gildersleeve.
David Gildersleeve began his long and illustrious art career while growing up in Texas. Comic books sparked his interest in art and became his earliest teachers - Batman being a favorite.
While David remains committed to the world of comics (he is currently working on self publishing his own series), he also enjoys painting. He paints subjects that invade his subconscious, using a wonky style to help bring these images to life. Using textures and a selective palette, David creates a definite mood in his work that most people refer to as whimsical.
Pictured here is his painting "Red Carnation" done in acrylic and ink on canvas.

Jennifer Davis is a force majeure in retail Charleston real estate. She brought us Warren on King, Carolina on King, Savannah Bee Company, Alex and Ani, Ibu, American Apparel, Rebecca Roller Rabbit, and Best Chefs America. Coming soon, Nola Couture at 363 King Street, Benrus at 162 King, Bevello at 285 King. She helped Christophe Artisan Chocolatier find their highly successful expansion location at 90 Society Street, which I personally frequent and appreciate. The courtyard is perfect for enjoying French Press Coffee and upstairs there’s more than enough room for a meeting.
Those are just leases. Jennifer’s Domicile Real Estate Brokerage sold the buildings housing Gap, Bebe, Groucho’s and Five Guys, Earthbound Trading Co., Husk, The Hidden Countship, Eli’s Table, Charleston Shoe Co, and a bunch of the ones where they placed the aforementioned lessees.
Icing on the cake, Jennifer bought her own building at 163 King Street.

The History Boys, winner of over 30 theatre awards including New York Drama Critics’ Circle and Tony Awards for Best New Play, opens at Woolfe Street Playhouse on February 27.
Set in the 1980s, The History Boys is a comic drama about adolescent schoolboys. An unruly bunch of bright young men in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results and a history teacher who thinks he’s a fool.
Staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose. The History Boys features Theatre Charleston Award winning actors Robin Burke and Lynda Harvey and a powerhouse ensemble cast.

Le Creuset is French for “if you love to cook you’ll love using these tools.” Not really, but it’s how many of us feel. Watch The Food Network; many of the host chefs use their exquisitely produced cast iron pots and pans. Many of our talented Charleston chefs use them, too. I don’t claim cooking proficiency, but I use it, and there really is a difference. Not to mention it’s so pretty.
In Charleston we are fortunate to have a larger-than-most Le Creuset presence. Their North American Marketing Office and Culinary Center, L’Atelier Le Creuset, is at Ripley Point. For a long time, their signature store sat cozily at 241 King Street between Starbucks and the Pauline Sisters Media Center.
Susan Walker wanted a shop on lower King Street to display her hand-woven wares from foreign lands, but she couldn’t find the street-level space she yearned for. So she looked to a store with second-floor space to see what was available.
