JUNE 29TH, 2010

Columbia, S.C. – Breaking from the tradition of first Thursday, the FOM Series has decided to run on the second Thursday (July 8th) for the month of July and will be offering a truly eclectic mix of local artists for you to enjoy. Artists included are Billy Guess, Sanford Greene, Amanda Ladymon, Cedric Umoja, Abraham Mong, Pamm Collins, VerseWorks, and Heart of the South Pine.

Frame of Mind will host Billy Guess’s interactive installation based on the space that is “Frame of Mind, the art of eyewear”. Billy has designed a show that incorporates the theme of eyewear and will present this concept using different formats and angles.

Renowned graphic novel artist Sanford Greene will show his superhero themed work in Gotham Bagel (sponsored by Mo Betta Soul).

Amanda Ladymon will be in the Silver’s Building (1546 Main) with her installation “Rhizomorphius: Cycles and Entrails”. This is the closing of the installation (which began on June 3rd) and it will show the complete manifestation of 5 week’s of Amanda’s special artistry in the unordinary space known as the Silver’s Building. Amanda will show other pieces of her art in the new S&S Art Supply at 1633 Main St.

Speaking of S&S Art Supply, July 8th is their grand opening celebration. As a part of the celebration they will have two artists (Cedric Umoja & Abraham Mong) working their magic live and two of the beautiful dancers from Delirium Tribal Bellydance will surprise you with their soul-catching and mysterious Mediterranean stylings.

VerseWorks, a local slam poetry group which normally performs on Tuesdays at The Art Bar, will be tearing up the street with their spoken word explosions. Other artists on the street are Pamm Collins and Heart of the South Pine furniture, both in 1520 block.

Cellar on the Greene is sponsoring a wine tasting inside Frame of Mind.

Frame of Mind is open Monday 10am to 2 pm and Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm, and is located at 1520 Main Street across from the Art Museum in Columbia, South Carolina.
