Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild 20th Annual Juried Art Exhibition
May 2 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The Art Museum was conceived by a small but visionary group of local art enthusiasts, among them a group of artists formed in the late 1960s called the Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild. Beginning in the spring of 1969, a pattern of art exhibitions was established that continues today. To honor the integral role that the Guild played in the Museum’s establishment, the Museum proudly hosts the Gilds’s annual spring juried art exhibition, which is now in its 20th year. A diverse array of media, including ceramics, collage, drawings, graphics, mixed media works in both two and three-dimension, paintings, photography, sculpture, textiles and wood carving, all completed by local artists within the past two years, will be exhibited. This year’s judge is professional artist Linda Daly Baker of Charleston, SC. Her watercolors capture the transformative effects of light and its ability to abstract the subject matter upon which it is cast. Baker teaches workshops internationally and is a signature member of a number of guilds, including the American Watercolor Society, the International Society of Experimental Artists, the national Watercolor Society and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America. Learn more at LindaDalyBaker.com.

This exhibition will be on display May 2 – June 1, 2017

Museum Matinees: Hard to Say Goodbye-The Official Documentary of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion
May 3 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the film Hard to Say Goodbye: The Official Documentary of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion. For almost 100 years the Myrtle Beach Pavilion played a beloved role in Myrtle Beach history. From its origins as a meeting place and dance hall to the arrival of famed general manager Earl Husted and its expansion into a world famous amusement park, this official documentary, commissioned by park owner Burroughs & Chapin Company and accomplished in union with Myrtle Beach’s award-winning Stages Video Productions, captures the magic and memories that made the Myrtle Beach Amusement Park a family favorite for generations.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, May 3rd, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2017. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail [email protected].

human traffickingGFWC North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club will host a presentation of the movie “Sold” at the Carmike 12 Theatre (10177 North Kings Hwy., Myrtle Beach, S.C.) on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:30 PM to 8:15 PM.
The club is bringing the movie to our area to bring awareness to our communities about human trafficking.
The public is invited to attend this exclusive, one-night only showing of this insightful and chilling movie, based on the international bestselling novel by Patricia McCormick, and inspired by true accounts.
This is the story of a young girl, who journeys from a rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel-prison in India. The film illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year.
Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen. GFWC-NMBWC hopes this will be a call to action and educate viewers to address the crime locally and nationally.
Open to the public. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online at https://www.tugg.com/events/sold-nltf

Fielding Freed: The Things They Carried-Grunt Gear of the Vietnam War
May 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a lecture by Fielding Freed on Saturday, May 6th, on grunt gear of the Vietnam War.

A grunt once said that with all the gear on his back he felt like a turtle and moved about as quickly. This hands-on program will show some of the gear used and carried by soldiers and Marines during the Vietnam War. Understanding some of the physical demands of jungle warfare starts with the equipment carried by our troops. Historian Fielding Freed will show and discuss original examples including rations, field gear, headgear, uniforms, and the all-important back pack radio used during Vietnam. Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.

The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email [email protected]. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.

Loretta Lynn
May 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful – and as culturally significant – as any female performer you’d care to name.  Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike.  The Coal Miner’s Daughter – the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself – has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon.  Don’t miss your chance to see an American Legend perform many of her 52 Top 10 hits and 16 #1 singles!

Museum Matinees: Echoes of the Blue & Gray-Veterans of the Civil War
May 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the film Echoes of the Blue & Gray: Veterans of the Civil War. The survivors of the American Civil War wished that their sacrifices be remembered. And, as they marched with thinning ranks into a new century, the invention of the motion-picture camera enabled technology to record their moving image, their faces and voices, allowing us to remember them as something more than a stilted pose, a bronze statue, or a name on a marble headstone. This collection of newsreels allows one for the first time to actually see and hear the gallant heroes of the American Civil War. This film features the 1913 and 1938 Gettysburg Reunion, 1917 Vicksburg Reunion; Famous Generals: Dan Sickles, Joe Wheeler, Nelson Miles; Famous Units: Irish Brigade, Forrest’s Cavalry, New York Zouaves; and the final reunions of the G.A.R. & U.C.V.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, May 10th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2017. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail [email protected].

Edwin McCain Live at Salt Air Jam
May 19 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. His hit songs, authentic spirit and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts. After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music, McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US as a solo artist, with his full band or his acoustic trio. Recently, he’s added orchestras to his repertoire, performing with symphonies in select markets where he brings his powerful songs to majestic new heights.

Those enduring love songs (and wedding must-haves) “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” aren’t just for the romantic at heart; “American Idol” and “The Voice” contestants turn to Edwin’s ballads every single year to help them win over judges and fans alike (just like AI’s Ninth Season winner, Nick Fradiani). Even Justin Bieber has been known to belt out “I’ll Be” during his own concerts.

A couple years ago, McCain suddenly found himself with a whole new crop of fans when his “Flipping Ships” television show debuted on Animal Planet and became one of the highest rated new programs for the network. During the season, Edwin happily juggled his two jobs, filming the show by day and headlining concerts at night. “The 15-year-old me would have crawled through a river of fire to be the 47-year-old singer/songwriter that I am today, and I remember that,” he says. “I am incredibly grateful to be able to do this.”
