Fall Fun and Fundraisers at the Noizy Oyster

September 4, 2017

Myrtle Beach – The Noizy Oyster, a long-time favorite spot for seafood and Happy Hour, has a lot of fun scheduled for the fall season, including a series of fundraisers designed to help local veterans.

War Vets Motorcycle Club is holding a series of five fundraising Happy Hours at the Noizy Oyster from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday nights. The first is Tuesday, Sept. 12, and they’ll continue through Tuesday, Oct. 10. While the events are called Tuesday Night Bike Nights, both bikers and non-bikers are welcome.

war vets mc

The Noizy Oyster’s food and drink Happy Hour specials will be in effect during these fun events, and there will be lots of door prizes.

The WVMC is comprised of members from all Armed Forces branches that have had confirmed combat service in a foreign theatre of operation. They work together alongside other veterans organizations in the region to help assist in fundraising operations for the purpose of giving their fellow combat veterans a hand-up rather than a hand-out.

Every penny of donations is used to help veterans; its organizers are volunteers who do not take salaries. Veterans are helped with a variety of needs, from paying electric bills to providing food and rides to doctor appointments or job interviews.

On September 1st, 2016 the WVMC became an independent Non-Profit organization recognized as a 503c-19 (Non-Profit Organization for past or present members of the United States Armed Forces).

On Thursday nights from 6:30-9:30 p.m. (weather permitting), musician and comedian Chris Acrey performs on the Noizy Oyster’s patio. His brand of rock ‘n’ roll combined with humor makes for a fun night of entertainment. There is no cover charge.

When the Baltimore Ravens play their NFL IMG_5556football games, the Noizy Oyster is packed with Ravens fans cheering on their favorite team. During the games a special flavor of wings is served: they’re bathed in Old Bay Seafood Seasoning!

Full Circle Artist Loves Lowcountry Landscapes

Charles Glazer’s artistic abilities were recognized and encouraged starting in his childhood, and now that he is retired in Myrtle Beach that promise is being fulfilled.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While attending fifth grade in Pennsylvania, Glazer was called out of class and told he was being sent to a special art class every Saturday held in downtown Pittsburgh at the Carnegie Institute. He attended those classes for seven years.

“It really helped me in my career,” Glazer said as he arranged his new art exhibit at ART Burger Sushi Bar in Myrtle Beach. “I never pursued art professionally, but I used art all through my career.”

That career was working for two leading advertising and public relations agencies, serving as editor and publisher of two magazines and managing the corporate relations departments of three Fortune 500 companies. He developed advertising and promotional campaigns and many types of creative communications materials.

In 2014 he and his wife started checking out the Myrtle Beach area as a retirement destination, because they often vacationed here and “fell in love with the area.” After a year of research, they moved to the area. Soon after the move, Glazer received a special gift from his children – an art set. For the past two years, Glazer has pursued painting with vigor.

“I do traditional oils and mostly landscapes,” he said. “Now that I’m retired I have time to devote the time it needs to do a painting. It can take 4-6 weeks to do a single painting.”

His favorite subjects are boats, abandoned boat houses and abandoned farms. Some are from his imagination, while other paintings are conglomerations of different photos he has taken throughout the Lowcountry.

“I’m always taking pictures. I’ll merge different pictures into one painting. I’ll take a sunset from one photograph, a barn from another, and a field or a tree from a third and merge them into a painting.”

When asked why abandoned buildings appeal to him, he said, “I just think they have so much character, and I wonder about the stories they could tell if they could talk…four or five generations of families worked so hard to build a life for themselves. As I’m painting I’m thinking about the stories that could come from a place like that.”

Glazer is also thinking about his next painting subjects and is considering a series focusing on windows, and another featuring doors. While his work has been on display in restaurants and galleries from Calabash, N.C., to Pawleys Island, right now his only exhibit is at ART.

ART Burger Sushi Bar is at 706 N. Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach. Two new artists are featured monthly, and their works are for sale. The restaurant never takes a commission on those sales.

Spray Paint Art Builds Beautiful Layers

Brittany Miller uses “normal rattle-can spray paint” to create her art, but her work is definitely not graffiti.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The 25-year-old graduated from Carolina Forest High School in Myrtle Beach where she took an art class, but most of her inspiration is from the grandmother that all her grandchildren call Nanny Beach.

“My grandmother sent me all her own art supplies that she didn’t use,” Miller says. “She influenced me big time. She did a lot of watercolors, still lives, portraits, oil painting.”

Nanny Beach lives in Florida and can’t give her granddaughter lessons, and other than that one high school art class, Miller is self-taught. She saw a video of a street artist using spray paints to create art and thought it looked like fun, so she watched a few tutorials and started experimenting.

“Basically from the first one I did, I loved it. I couldn’t stop trying new things. I love how you can get different textures and play around with it so much. It’s so forgiving – you can make errors, but you can always fix them. I think it’s vibrant and modern, and some of it might be a little abstract. It’s different and colorful.”

Many of Miller’s pieces depict landscapes and nature, and they’re all colorful and textured. She has discovered a few tricks to enhance her vision, such as using crumpled-up paper to delve through layers of paint in order to show depth and colors.

In addition to being on exhibit and for sale at ART for the next four weeks, Brittany Miller’s works are also on display at her mother’s store, Lemon Drops, in the Island Shops in Pawleys Island.

ART Burger Sushi Bar is located by the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk at 700 N. Ocean Blvd. ART has a gorgeous oceanfront view inside and out on the patio, and an extremely artistic and friendly atmosphere. ART serves gourmet burgers made with hormone- and antibiotic-free beef; sandwiches; unique side dishes; and creatively tasty sushi made with sustainable seafood. ART is also the only place in Myrtle Beach where you’ll find liquid nitrogen cocktails. It’s open from noon-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and noon-midnight Friday and Saturday.

ART never takes a commission on exhibiting artists’ sales.

ART Burger Sushi Bar Featured on Cooking Channel

ART Burger Sushi Bar, an oceanfront restaurant in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, will be featured on July 13 on the Cooking Channel program Beach Bites with Katie Lee.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The show is in its second season, and the episode is called “Off the Eaten Path.” The show’s host, Katie Lee, was on the hunt for unusual dishes when Chef Quentin Wright submitted information about himself and about ART Burger Sushi Bar. After several interviews, including a Skype interview, the show’s producers selected Chef Q, ART and the Fried Chicken Roll to be featured.

ART’s Fried Chicken Roll has fried chicken tenders inside a sushi roll that is topped with made-to-order smoked Gouda mac ‘n’ cheese and a drizzle of barbecue sauce. The dish was developed by the restaurant’s founder and president, Larry Bond. He wanted to develop an “outside the box” roll that would appeal to people who were new to sushi and might be a little hesitant to try traditional rolls. He also wanted to bridge the gap between burgers and sushi.

So Bond thought, “Everyone love fried chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese.” He kept this thought in the back of his mind as he prepared for more than a year to open ART Burger Sushi Bar, which was his first original concept restaurant. He went to Japan to study the art and craft of sushi, and he asked his sushi master what he thought of offering sushi rolls made with proteins other than seafood, combined with other thoroughly American ingredients.

He loved it! And so, with the sushi master’s blessing, the Fried Chicken Roll was launched, and guests at ART Burger Sushi Bar made it one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.

Katie Lee and her film crew visited ART in February 2017 to film the segment that features Chef Q, the Fried Chicken Roll and a specialty cocktail called Piece of Art made with Southern Comfort, Amaretto, Peach Schnapps and pineapple and cranberry juices.

ART will have a viewing party for the first airing of “Off the Eaten Path” on Beach Bites with Katie Lee, which is 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, on Cooking Channel. The episode is scheduled to air six additional times, and the schedule can be viewed on the show’s website.

To commemorate Katie Lee’s visit to ART, through the end of July guests who dine at ART may enjoy a Fried Chicken Roll and a liquid nitrogen Piece of ART cocktail for $17.

ART Burger Sushi Bar is at 700 N. Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach, with a free parking lot off York Street. It’s open daily from noon to midnight with Happy Hour from 4-7 p.m. Monday-Friday. Stay up to date with all specials and news on ART’s Facebook page.

Pieces of Art Bring Peace of Heart

Myrtle Beach, SC – Learning to paint has led to more than just fulfilment to a Myrtle Beach resident diagnosed with ovarian cancer; painting has actually helped relieve some of her symptoms.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Art therapy lessons for people who have had strokes and other traumatic medical problems are taught by ART’s resident artist, Linda Weatherspoon, and one of her student’s work is now on exhibit at the Myrtle Beach restaurant gallery.

Veronica Walker, a mother of four and grandmother of one, has lived in Myrtle Beach since 1988. A woman known for her sense of humor and hearty laugh, Veronica works within the Horry County Probate Court.

She also has stage 3c ovarian cancer, which is eleventh on a scale of 1-12. People with stage 3c have a 39% survival expectancy beyond five years after diagnosis.

“I was diagnosed in March 2013,” Walker says. “I met the four year challenge, and I intend to have four more. I have a grandson I want to see graduate college, get married and have a little family. I told the Lord I need to be here a little longer.”

Ovarian cancer was making it hard for Walker to sleep at night. She’s a roamer, and she often roamed the mall. That’s where she noticed a sign advertising art therapy lessons taught by Linda Weatherspoon. Although the classes are designed for stroke survivors, after hearing about her cancer diagnosis Weatherspoon immediately said Walker could sign up.

It should be noted that Weatherspoon, the mother of ART Burger Sushi Bar’s company president, Larry Bond, was a high school art teacher when she had a stroke. She credits art therapy for much of her recovery and funds the art lessons she now conducts by selling paintings from her own exhibit at the restaurant.

Walker says the lessons have given her peace. Although she had never painted, she always had an artistic flair. Practicing techniques learned from Weatherspoon has given Walker a critical outlet for self expression and mind absorption that has made it possible for her to sleep.

“I greatly love this. I can paint five or six hours, and then I can sleep straight through the night with no problems. I love it. And now that the weather’s nice I can pack up some of it and take it down to Springmaid.”

Walker hangs a lot of her work in her office, and she has sold quite a few pieces. One depicting 13 cats sitting on a fence proved so popular, she has painted and sold seven versions.

“I get such a peace [from painting],” she says. “I love every minute.”

Walker’s acrylic paintings are on exhibit across from the host stand at ART Burger Sushi Bar, and they are for sale. The restaurant never takes a commission from the artists.

ART Burger Sushi Bar is oceanfront at 700 N. Ocean Blvd. in Myrtle Beach. It’s open daily from noon-10 a.m. ART is part of Myrtle Beach’s First Friday Art Walks, which take place the first Friday of every month from 4-8 p.m.

Pyrography and Phone Photography Featured at ART Burger Sushi Bar

Allison Lewis and John Morken, the new artists of the month at ART Burger Sushi Bar in Myrtle Beach, have different methods and genres, but they share a love of subject: nature.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Allison is originally from Florence, but she spent decades away from South Carolina before returning. She has always been an artist.

“I didn’t start doing art, I just always did it,” she said. Although Allison has been creating art her whole life, it has been only during the previous two years she has offered her pieces for sale.

It’s evident she has many years’ experience, because her paintings, pyrography (art created by burning) and chainsaw wood sculptures are exquisite. Most feature animals or landscapes, and her canvas is often driftwood, scrap vintage barn wood or pieces of old tin roofs. Her painting medium is watercolor and acrylics.

In addition to this month’s exhibit at ART Burger Sushi Bar, Allison has her works at Seacoast Artists Gallery at The Market Common in Myrtle Beach. She also has a Facebook page called “A Burning Passion.”

—————–

All of the photos John Morken has on display this month at ART feature a series of photos taken on a foggy morning in Murrells Inlet.

The retired corporate financier grew up in Minneapolis and moved to the Myrtle Beach area five years ago. He had a hard time finding up-to-date and thorough calendars of events for fine arts, so he made one.

“We were frustrated,” he said. “We kept hearing about things after they happened…I started making a calendar for myself so I wouldn’t miss things, so I thought I’d turn it into a website for everything. Now there is TheArtsGrandStrand.org, and there are more than 600 events per year on it.”

Morken started professional photography about two years ago, and he uses his 12 megapixel Samsung S7 to take stunning shots. Some are lightly edited, while others are manipulated through software that gives the photos more intense artistic effects, such as lending an impressionistic feeling.

The photographer says he hopes his work will give “inspiration to everybody to go out with their phone and see what they can do.”
