A salute to the spring ...
Jason Baxley came to me two weeks ago and casually mentioned that he had some art he wanted me to see. The second I saw them, I was blown away. I think you will be, too. With warm weather (finally) here, I felt like it was a fantastic way of honoring the sunshine. And look at Charleston a little differently.
This is the type of issue I've always wanted to do: full-color photo spreads of amazing art. With Preview, I was limited by the black-and-white pages and never really could go as far artistically as I wanted. Charleston Scene allows me to do that.
Also, take a look at the Charleston International Film Festival stories. CIFF is a huge event for the Lowcountry. It's time to have some fun.
