A&E Q&A: Artist finds gold as part of unique style | Community News

The glimmer of the gold-leaf artwork at artist Julie Wheeler’s table caught my eye.

This took place as I walked around the vendor’s displays at the new Cuban Gypsy Parlor’s 1st Friday “Gypsy Market” on Oct. 2.

I met an author there, too, who I will profile next week, too.

Wheeler hails from Cleveland, Ohio, but studied graphic design and painting at Loyola University in New Orleans. She’s been in Summerville for two years now, having relocated from Charlotte.

Regan: You began art as a little girl with a crayon? Did your teachers say you had artistic talent growing up?

Wheeler: When I was young, I could never color inside the lines, both figuratively and literally. I would always go against the grain of any assigned art project. This got a lot of attention when I was in grade school. My projects

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current coffee maker or are buying one for the first time, there’s no better time than now—during Amazon Prime Day—to invest in a new machine. Because there are so many options on the market, you’ll want to consider your lifestyle, and the type of Joe you like best, when buying a coffee maker. If you find that you spend hundreds of dollars a year on handcrafted espresso beverages such as lattes and cappuccinos, consider purchasing an espresso maker on Prime Day. If you prefer a classic cup of coffee and find yourself needing more than just one mug, a large-capacity drip coffee machine is probably right for you.

VITA moving data center servers as part of transition to cloud, new business model | Govt-and-politics

VITA got high marks from the state agencies for enabling them and their employees to operate remotely after the governor declared the public health emergency on March 12, according to a new report by the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, which had been sharply critical of the IT agency a year earlier.

“All the chips were down and you need your partners to execute, and we executed very well,” Ozovek said in an interview on Friday.

In a survey of state agencies, JLARC said more than 75 were satisfied with VITA’s help during the

SWEETEST MOMENT They’ll never forget reading their vows to each other. “We hadn’t heard them before the ceremony. It melted my heart to hear the words Eric put together,” Kate says. Their ring bearer, nephew Kingston, stole the show with his happy demeanor. He even got offers from other engaged guests to be the ring bearer for their weddings.

UNITED WE STAND They planted an oak seed from the Nebraska Arboretum for the unity ceremony, using mason jars full of soil from the backyards of where they
