'Doctuh Buzzard's Rootworks' and 'String Theory' new installations at ARTworks

    Two new studio installations at ARTworks are full of artful gifts by two teams of artists— but only through the end of the year. Bernice & Andy Tate have created “Doctuh Buzzard’s Rootworks,” an emporium of homespun Gullah goods. Deanna Bowdish with Wendy & Terry Brennan are collaborating on “String Theory, a slight twist on the holidays.”
    The Tates have created a country store stocked with Hoodoo Gullah Culture, such as bottles of St. Helena Hex Oil, based on the local legends (and factual history) of Dr. Buzzard. “String Theory” is art to walk through: yarn is used three dimensionally to create a optical experience that also happens to offer original, one-of-a-kind holiday creations perfect for finding a little something for everyone on your list.
    “Give the gift of original art that won’t hurt the budget” is a theme for both installations; shoppers and collectors are encouraged to keep stopping back to see these live-and-happening, temporary installations throughout the holiday season, Tuesdays-Saturdays and during the special holiday parties and shows.
