  • Whether it’s forming pottery or painting en plein air, the pleasure is in the process for this month’s featured artists at Franklin Square Gallery’s new Members Show.

    Both draw from their careers and their backgrounds in their individual approaches to creating art.

    Carla Edstrom is a former paramedic, and that career path led to her unique approach in shaping her pottery.

    Ann Lees’ fascination with gardening and nature brought her to the oil painting technique called en plein air, a French term for painting “in the open air.”

  • It’s strawberry time again.

    The fields at Indigo Farms, Holden Brothers Produce and a new grower—Waccamaw River Farm & Nursery in Ash—are laden with sweet, red, juicy berries ready for picking and buying and converting into all kinds of delicious recipes.

    You can either pick strawberries yourself or buy them already picked. (Just take your pick.)

    At Indigo Farms on Highway 57, strawberries have been ripe for picking since mid-April and should be available until the first week in June.

  • Yes, spring has sprung.

    You can tell the minute you enter the Brunswick County Government Complex in Bolivia, where fragrant, beautiful-but-bossy wisteria is conducting its annual April takeover of a towering pine tree, draping it in spring lavender.

    Just around the bend, pink tulips greet visitors venturing into Brunswick Botanical Gardens, where bees buzz amid the first flowers of spring and a waterfall and stream gurgle.

  • With curiosity and a tiny bit of trepidation, we walked into the fellowship hall of King of Glory Lutheran Church. A two-day workshop had been planned with nationally known speakers Marty Haugen and Susan Briehl, but none of us knew the specific content.

    The weather was glorious. Were we ready to sacrifice outdoor activities for indoor enlightenment? What if the message became too disconcerting, too challenging? What if it was just a repetition of all that we already knew and practiced? What were we to expect?
