Stratford Academy’s 2nd Annual Celebrating ART Festival Offers Something for Everyone by Traci Burns Having a solid exposure to the arts is an integral part of any good education. Art is about more than just drawing or painting - art helps encourage unconventional, creative thinking; it can serve as a bridge across cultural differences; it helps us understand the scope of human experience; and it gives us multiple options for expressing and communicating our emotions and ideas. In a lot of ways, art teaches us how to think and how to be a good citizen of the world – pretty important stuff, really. Several years ago, artist and Stratford parent Lori Mitchell brought up the idea of the school hosting an artist marketplace that would include not only Stratford students and families but also the Macon community at large. Inspired by Atlanta’s Trinity School, whose Spotlight on Art celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, Stratford began planning its own event, and last year they were excited to host the inaugural Celebrating ART festival, which was such a success that it’ll be returning for a week of festivities this October 12-18. “We were thrilled with last year’s response,” says Stratford’s Kathleen Medlin. “This was something new and unbranded for our community, but when I’d go out and pitch the idea to individuals, businesses, or groups, they were so supportive and excited about the possibilities. That really fueled our enthusiasm, and I think that spilled over into the community.” The festival comprises a number of smaller art-focused events under the thematic umbrella of “Learn, Experience, Celebrate” – there are guest lectures from visiting artists, hands-on classes and workshops, an artist marketplace, gallery showings, and so much more. In addition to community partners Wesleyan College, Mercer University, Macon Arts Alliance, and Museum of Arts & Sciences, this year Celebrating ART is excited about partnering with One City Art Festival, a citywide celebration of the arts spearheaded by the Arts Roundtable, an association of middle Georgia arts organization – the Glass Pumpkin Patch (more on it below) will be one of their featured events. So what can you expect at this year’s festival? Architect and Macon Native William (Bill) Harrison is looking forward to returning home to kick off the event on Friday, October 13 with a breakfast lecture – catered by Fountain of Juice – during which he’ll discuss his observations on the

relationship between art and architecture, and their effect on the human experience. Other notable events include a lecture from art appraiser Roderick Hardy with the interest-piquing title “From George Washington to Willie Nelson: What is Art?” If you have a piece of art that you’ve always been curious about, Hardy will also be accepting a limited number of appointments to consult with guests about their treasures, free of charge. NYC caricature artist Squigs, aka Justin Robertson, who is excited to visit Macon for the first time, will be teaching a workshop on the history and technique of the caricature art form, and he’ll also be accepting reservations for live caricature sittings. Hot Glass Academy will be hosting a holiday ornament workshop, and will also feature their work in the Glass Pumpkin Patch, an artistic spin on a traditional fall favorite where you can admire hundreds of hand-blown glass pumpkins and even pick out one to take home. And of course there are several opportunities to have the chance to view work by artists both local and from across the country – the Stratford Connections art exhibit, located in Stratford’s Parker Buzzell Gallery, will feature works created by Stratford parents, faculty, alumni, and grandparents. Gallery 6010 Artist Marketplace is a popup gallery showing hundreds of original pieces, many of which will be available for sale. Admission to both of these galleries is free to the public. Kathleen Medlin has a favorite story from last year - post-festival, as they were working to dismantle the Stratford Connections gallery in the school’s main lobby, “a group of our high school boys walked through and said, ‘Do you have to take it down? It was really cool to walk by every day and see all the art.’ People of all ages enjoy being exposed to art.” For more information about the festival, and to purchase tickets to individual events, visit Celebrating ART’s website at - you can also find them on Facebook, or contact them via telephone at 478477-8073, ext 614. Be sure to take the time to check out these diverse, interesting opportunities that Stratford is working hard to bring to our community. “I’d love for Celebrating ART to be around 35 years from now and be one of THE art events in our community,” says Kathleen Medlin. “We want to bring new and different speakers each year, so there will always be something to celebrate at Celebrating ART.”

In addition to writing, Renee is a personal trainer and teaches classes at Pure Barre Macon (that’s exercise, not booze).

As an adult, there is nothing quite like those rare moments when you are reminded of what it is like to be a kid. Sitting next to my sister in-law on a trolley on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of September had me feeling like I was eight-years-old again. We are not on the trolley long, just the short distance from the Health Department to the Ocmulgee National Monument, but it is just enough time to give me that good ol’ giddy feeling. For young academics in elementary school, field trips are the pinnacle of their existence. As a twenty-five-year-old woman with a bad habit of neglecting all chores until the weekend, a Saturday afternoon trolley ride to the Indian Mounds is practically a five-star vacation. Now when I first elected myself as your Local Tourist here in Macon, there were a few big to-do items I knew I needed to cross off of my list. The first was The Big House—check. The next one was the Ocmulgee Indian Celebration, an annual event I have consistently neglected to attend. Another bad habit, I guess. These two particular attractions were a priority for me because although present day Macon has a lot to offer, Macon would not be the city it is today without its past. And while there is undeniably a significant emphasis placed on Macon’s music history, there is nothing more historically significant, in my humble opinion, than the people that first called Macon home. According to the National Park Service, the Ocmulgee National Monument has been occupied by American Indians for the past 17,000 years. That is so historic, it is actually prehistoric. When we get off the trolley, we pay our way and then sort of wander around. There is so much happening in every direction, eye-catching colors and mouth-watering smells. The atmosphere is that of a family gathering, a backyard party of sorts. To be at a festival celebrating a culture different than my own, I feel surprisingly at home. We pass the food trucks on our left and the bleachers on our right. Thanks to my brochure, I know what all the commotion is about. It is a game called Wind Choctaw Youth Stickball. We keep walking until we reach what appears to be an open air market. As we zigzag around the tents, perusing the different artifacts and all of the impeccable handmade goods, I realize that we are win-

dow shopping—or windowless shopping, if you will. All of a sudden, we are just two gals on a Saturday afternoon shopping trip. Everything is stunning. I find myself wishing that they would host a pop-up shop every now and then. And although we keep our purchases minimal—a pair of turkey feather earrings for her mother and a sun and moon painting for my husband—the vendors are so patient and so kind, freely offering information about the history of their art. One man boasts that all of the jewelry is handmade by his wife and all of the dream-catchers by his daughter. He is justifiably proud.

Thoughtful, handmade gifts in tow, we decide to gift ourselves by revisiting the food trucks. Again, I note the correlation between today and any other Saturday well spent. We prop ourselves up on the bleachers just in time to hear the Cherokee stories being told. I eat my corndog and sip my Coke. The Touch the Earth Dancers are set to go on next—beautiful people, making beautiful movements with their bodies, which just so happen to be adorned with the most beautifully-made clothes—this is what I have been looking forward to the most. A lovely woman in a long, vibrant skirt begins to introduce the dancers, explaining each of the dances and the culture from which they derived. She describes what they do as edutainment, meaning their intentions are both to educate and to entertain. I am wildly attracted to a philosophy that encourages having fun as much as showing reverence. In addition to the dancers, she also introduces two young girls, one is her daughter, the other is her niece. She explains that they do not force their children to participate in the dances, but that they always dress them for the part. When the first dance begins, the two young girls are close by, not necessarily a picture of perfect choreography, but they are bouncing to whatever drumbeat they feel inside. This reminds me of the kids at Second Sunday, fearlessly strutting their stuff in front of a crowd. Between dances, the orator explains that everything is round. The earth is round; the trees are round. Our lives are a circular journey from infancy and then back again. I am imagining an eighty-year-old version of myself running around in front of the Second Sunday stage, dancing with an awareness that everyone is watching and yet completely void of shame. We watch one last dance—a chicken dance that is much more stylish than the one I remember from grade school— and then we make our way back to the trolley. Adulthood is calling, our circles not yet complete. A young boy wearing board shorts and Ray-Bans darts in front of me, bow and arrow in hand. There are little girls everywhere, all of whom seem to have skipped straight out of a Target ad, candy-colored feathers dangling from their hair. What a unique collision of cultures. How lucky we are to be welcomed here.

Ms. Charlotte says, “Start with your root!” Take a deeper look at your gut. There are trillions of bacteria in there, that contain at least 100 times as many genes as you do. The amount of DNA in that bacteria ounumbers even your own DNA, which controls your immune function. You may want to consider what you’re feeding it. If you’re suffering from skin issues, allergies, reflux, obesity, depression, attention deficit, and many other symptoms, you may need to address the imbalances of the microflora in your gut! Normalizing the gut function is so simple. Just increase the natural probiotic food in your diet by adding things like cultured veggies and cultured kefir. At Hart and Bowl, you can purchase both of theses along with a culture kit. Our foods lost their natural antibiotic and probiotic benefits when refrigeration was invented. Foods were no longers canned in glass jars and put on shelves to be fermented. Come give it a try, Ms. Charlotte will fix you up.

I Am A Mercerian. Sharon McElhaney, Adult Undergraduate Student There is nothing “typical” about Sharon McElhaney. At a stage of life where other people might start thinking about slowing down and taking it easy, she’s just getting started. The mother of four grown children and a retired district analyst for the U.S. Postal Service, Sharon is also a recent graduate of Mercer University. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercer in the Liberal Studies program, with concentrations in Religious Studies and Writing. Through her faith, Sharon says, she was led to Mercer unexpectedly, where to her “great surprise,” she was embraced “with open arms.” Not only did Mercer’s helpful staff and faculty welcome Sharon to the campus, they also helped pave the way for an unlikely second career path. Shortly after returning from a six-week mission trip at a faith-based homeless shelter in Chicago in 2011, and filled with a passion for working with people who live on “the fringes of American society,” Sharon felt inspired to establish a similar facility in Macon. Prayer, she says, led her to the doorsteps of the Mercer Admissions Office, and through a leap of faith, words of encouragement, and the benefit of financial aid, Sharon found herself back in a classroom for the first time in many years. Seasoned, supportive staff and strong mentorship from instructors helped guide Sharon though the process of choosing a major and laying the groundwork for a focused area of study, while a flexible mix of online coursework and weekend and evening classes helped keep her on task and on track. More than that, the education Sharon received at Mercer helped open her mind to the possibility of reviving her temporarily “deferred dream” of caring for Macon’s homeless. Inspiration came first through an essay Sharon wrote as a class assignment – a composition on the life of Jane Addams. Addams, the second woman ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, initiated the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom in

1919. She also co-founded Hull House, a settlement agency in Chicago that offered immigrants a wide range of vital services, helped newcomers to America integrate into the culture and workforce, and which, ultimately, was held up as a national standardbearer for social reform. Learning about Addams’ work “opened my mind to my future direction,” Sharon says. It also planted the seed for unexpected growth not only as a student, but as a person. “Topics for essays strategically designed to produce introspection brought about a newfound freedom. Honest dialogue with professors brought awareness of life issues from finances to race relations,” Sharon says. “I learned the importance of listening. I gained self-esteem and confidence by obtaining my BA degree, being the recipient of honors and an honor graduate, and becoming a published author and the student editor of a book. My ability to speak before an audience improved. I gained leadership skills as well as experience.” Along with serving as a dedicated volunteer at Daybreak, a resource center for the homeless in Macon that provides critical services, Sharon is also preparing to apply to law school. It was a Mercer classmate, she says, who suggested a law degree would be beneficial in her goal to launch a residential shelter for Macon’s most marginalized populations. Additionally, she is working with former classmates and professors at Mercer to produce a Daybreak-branded book, Daybreak: Creating Community. More than just awarding her a degree, Sharon says, Mercer helped her draw a map to a future she hadn’t counted on – one filled with an exciting new set of challenges and discoveries around every corner and curve. “Mercer has a great Liberal Arts studies program,” she says. “If you want an education that will transform your life, you should try it.”

| Meet: Chris Smith Native: Visalia, California Occupation: Photographer |

By Traci Burns

From his first day in Macon, Chris Smith has been plugged in. A photographer, he said he’s intrigued, not just by the images he makes, but by our growing and changing community. And if the stamps on his passport are any indication, he’s seen a few interesting communities. “Being here, I keep hearing how the town is changing, revitalizing – and you can actually feel it. Literally the first day I was here I was hanging out with some folks, some amazing people, and they are all doers. I immediately got plugged in to hearing about what was going on and seeing how people were affecting this city. I really embraced that,” he said. Landing in here last fall via California, Myanmar and Thailand, how did this world-traveling photographer end up in Macon? Chris, 35, grew up in Visalia, California. He inherited his love of photography from his dad. “My dad used to take me out to take photos. We’d go up in the hills. He gave me an old 35mm camera and said, ‘Whatever you shoot, I’ll develop and print it.’ I was young – still wearing Ninja Turtle shirts,” he said with a laugh. From there, his skill with a camera developed quickly. When he was just 16 he was asked to shoot a wedding: “I didn’t. I was scared as hell!” He attended California State University

Long Beach, majoring in psychology but quickly changing his major “to only thing I knew at that point: photography.” Graduating in 2008 with a bachelor’s in photography, he felt compelled to do more with his life – and talent – than just “take pretty pictures.” In 2011, he got the opportunity to work for Documentary Arts Asia in Chiang Mai, Thailand. His work took him to Yangon, Myanmar, in 2012. The country was rebuilding after years of military rule and civil wars. Myanmar’s government was transitioning to democracy and travel sanctions had been lifted. “That year they opened up to the global community. People could actually go in. So I started living there and learned the language,” he said. “No one wanted to live there at that time; it was a difficult place to live. The power would always go out, the food made everyone sick – even people who lived there – because of the horrible sanitation with the power going out all the time.” Despite the hardships, Chris said he found his work there intriguing. He stayed busy working for a travel writing company, freelancing and leading photo tours. “I was constantly traveling in this amazing, freshly-opened, hidden gem of a country,” he said. “I found a lot of value, not only in my work, but in the community. Every single person working there was eccentric and fascinatingly talented. No matter how hard you worked, you’d meet 10 other people over a beer that made you

feel like you’re not working hard enough. But it wasn’t exhausting like in the U.S., working 12 hours behind a desk. It was completely engaging. It felt like you were helping shape a community and a country.” His focus on human working rights and green tourism led to a job in Thailand in 2015 dealing with environmental sustainability and community development. He said it was an amazing experience, which also allowed him to photograph Khoa Sok National Park. Family duties called him home to California in early 2016 and he spent the summer there catching up with family and friends. Ready to return to work, he “sent out some feelers” and got a response from old friends and Maconites Tanner Coleman and Alexis Gregg, of AnT Sculptures. Chris first met the pair in college and they have been friends since. After helping them with a sculpture installation in Taiwan, they let him know Mercer University was looking for a photographer. Chris was hired, and in September 2016 he moved to Macon. “I had never been here, never been to the South. But I figured, what the heck,” he said about the decision to move. Coming from California, by way of Asia, the culture shock of moving to the South was “brutal.” “The food is the worst. You guys have barbecue, I’ll give you that, but mac-ncheese as a side in almost every restaurant is too much,” he said. “I got spoiled

with all the fresh food in California and Thailand. Here, even the fresh produce at Kroger isn’t that fresh; that’s what I have trouble with.” But one food has really won him over – grits. “Before coming here, I didn’t even know what grits were, but now I love them!” he said. “I have them at my house and even make them myself.” Still working for Mercer, Chris also shoots photos for Macon Magazine, Spectra and private events. Shortly after moving here, he got a grant from Mercer to display his artwork in Mercer Village. Three 5-by-7foot images he had taken at the Ocmulgee National Monument were displayed for six months. He said he doesn’t know how long he’ll stay in Macon, a city he also calls “intriguing,” but is making the most of being here. “I love the community aspect here. People really do tend to know everyone,” he said. “And there are so many people who are wanting to better the community. … I love seeing cities in transition, for better or worse. I gravitate toward that.” After living around the world, how does he fuel his creativity in the South? “Working with Mercer, having my images printed, seeing places I haven’t seen … even if it’s commercial work, it’s still new experiences and you still can play with style and keep learning things. … I constantly try to push it. I love Ocmulgee, new experiences, and even the architecture here – holy crap. The history here is amazing. It really grabs my attention.” 27

Listen Up: Maryex

Singer and guitarist, Shawn Williamson, had initially sought a band with a strong post-punk vibe. Rounding out the band with Gravey Jones (vocals/ bass) and Travis Reeves (drums), Maryex became a band dipping its toes in different genres. Their sound ranges from poppy bass riffs to the distorted fuzz of a guitar, rubbing elbows with postpunk, garage rock, and the atmospheric quality of space rock. I spoke with Maryex about their current favorite albums, the EP they are working on, and their upcoming show at The Hummingbird Stage and Taproom October 7th.

will come in and it’s all about business. We’ve got to get this done, practice, practice, practice. We can say we’re going to practice tonight and sit here and drink all night and talk and maybe get 20 minutes of practice in. I think that helps a lot. Or two hours of clowning on Metallica [laughter]. Gravey: It definitely helps with all our tastes being different. It kind of makes us sound like nobody else really. Just pulling different influences. For instance, I’m more into singer songwriter kind of stuff and Shawn’s more into post punk. Travis loves the Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

You guys are working on an album right now. What can we expect? Shawn: We’re working on finishing up an EP. Gravey: Five songs that we started recording almost three years ago initially. We’re pretty much done with it now. We’ve just got some fine tuning. Shawn: Basically we’re going to play this show and try to put out the EP. I think we might try to record a full length now that we have the studio streamlined. So it may seem like a hiatus again. Gravey: I think it’s kind of funny because the old songs really have different vibes but they’re all kind of cohesive. Me and Shawn swap out a lot of times with the lyrics. And a couple of our songs both ended up being kind of apocalyptic. It almost turned into a concept EP, if that’s even a thing. But it’s loud. It’s fun.

What album are you guys diggin right now? Shawn: I’m really digging Black Mountain IV because it has awesome fuzzy guitars. I’ve been playing guitar so long that I started getting into analog synthesizers. On the way back from a Sturgill (Simpson) show I listened to them on Spotify. I had never heard them before and it had one of those bad ass Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon synth solos. It sounds like something from the 70s but it doesn’t sound dated. Travis: Emily’s D+Evolution by Esperanza Spalding. All of them are so talented individually. That album also has the push and pull that I like. Gravey: Honestly, I’m still stuck on Susto’s & I’m Fine Today. It came out in January but I still listen to it at least once a week. Every song on it is fantastic. I think I like it a lot because our singing styles are similar especially when I do solo stuff on the acoustic. I’m a sucker for good singer songwriters because I don’t feel like I am one.

Tell me about these apocalyptic songs. Shawn: I wrote “River Bed.” I watched The Road. And I wrote a song with the same kind of feel but with you and your lover. Your lover dies and how that would be. [Gravey] wrote a song that’s the start to an apocalypse . . . mine would be the aftermath and watching the world die. Why do you think guys mesh so well together as a band? Shawn: A lot of bands, and this is good in a sense,

What can we expect from the show October 7th? Shawn: I’m hoping that we’re going to bring something we haven’t heard before and no one else has heard before. There’s going to be some of the same songs that people have heard before but I’m hoping there’s going to be some stuff in between. Gravey: I think with any of our shows you definitely expect to move around a little bit, have a good time, drink a few beers.

Maryex will be performing at The Hummingbird Saturday, October 7th! 28 SEPT 30 - OCT 13, 2017

It’s Saturday night in Downtown Macon and, upstairs at the historic Grant’s Lounge, the Plug Uglies Wrecking crew is out in full force. From my position at the edge of the stage where I’m snapping photos while propped against a snarling, thumping beast of a floor speaker, it’s clear they have me surrounded. Staring through the 35mm window as I pan the room, I spot the familiar faces of members both in the audience and on stage, frame after frame capturing their expressions of rapturous joy bathed in the haze of smoke machine fog, cigarette smoke, and twirling stage lights that composes the atmosphere within this narrow, rectangular chamber. Considering I am standing in the true natural habitat of all Plug Uglies, I am not surprised by their generous turnout. It is here in spaces like this, awash in the flood of musical mayhem, time racing by in frantic kick-drum meter, that they gather for their own kind of communion. Men and women of manifold ages and backgrounds all bound by devotion to the scene and the art created within it, the Plugs have become a supportive presence paramount to the success of alternative live music in areas spanning the nation. Here in Macon, the local chapter is no exception. Although founded just over a year ago, Macon’s Plugs have quickly established themselves as the lifeblood of the city’s underground music scene. If these kinds of shows are your cup of tea, there’s a good chance you’ve crossed paths with a Plug Uglies member but if you have you would probably remember it. They are quite difficult to miss. Although their appearances are far from uniform, no PUWC member is fully dressed for a show without donning the Crew’s signature denim or leather motorcycle-style vest. The front adorned with buttons, metal studs, and patches bearing esoteric phrases like “PSYCHO 78,” the back of every Plug’s vest is reserved for its largest and most unmistakably prominent patch…a distorted, slime-green skull centered against a pair of open, crossed switchblade knives. Al-

though the PUWC logo sometimes causes concerns or misinterpretations from the uninitiated, the deceivingly grotesque image has become a beacon to all who like their music loud, fast, and, unflinchingly honest. Founded officially in Columbus, Georgia in October 2011, the flagship PUWC chapter was the brainchild of founders Allen “Nasty” Dillard and current national president Chad Sheppard. Best friends who were both already iconic performers in the Southern hardcore scene, the two became fed up with the predatory business practices employed by many members of the music industry, namely bar and venue owners. Most underground bands are, almost by definition, not signed to a record label and often lack resources to hire professional managers or agents, leaving them in a vulnerable position when it comes time for money to change hands. Far too common were stories of bands were being paid considerably less than promised and sometimes being stiffed outright. Individually, there was little recourse the already marginalized musicians could pursue but Dillard and Sheppard realized if they worked together as an artistic community they could become powerful advocates for the scene. “We wanted to give the power back to the musicians and just all around support our local scene,” Sheppard explained when asked about PUWC’s genesis. Keeping with the fledgling organization’s mission to challenge the establishments they saw as harmful to their scene, the co-founders chose to name the group in honor of the Plug Uglies, a nineteenth century Baltimore street gang famous for its political activism and opposition to corrupt city officials. To Allen and Chad, the connection between their two organizations was clear. “It was an uprising of the people against the local corrupted government. We were ready to take back our scene and turn the tables.” And, as for the second half of the groups four-word moniker? “The Wrecking Crew means a few things to me. ...

Let's talk about sound. Not the vibrations reaching your ears via the air, but “the sound.” It's what an artist or band spends a lifetime developing. It can be relative or associative-- Muscle Shoals and FAME, Memphis and Stax, Los Angeles and Gold Star, Macon and Capricorn. In the 1960s and 1970s, a certain room and a particular core group of musicians was almost a necessity to move platters across the counter. That dynamic shifted in the 1980s with more synthetic music, and in the 1990s with home studios and independent labels. But nothing matched the formula and resonant mythology of exceptional studio bands like the Little Green Men, the Swampers, the Wrecking Crew, and Booker T & The MG's. The sound was never lost, though-- it just got dropped. It rolled under the couch of pop conformity, and while music lounged and became complacent, the sound underneath collected grit and funk. These days, if you need a crew that can either keep up or set the pace-- you're after the Texas Gentlemen. Based in Dallas, TX and boasting a rotating personnel of nearly fifty members, you can rest satisfied that there's a Gent for any project you can dream. The Texas Gentlemen have set the stage and the studio for legends like Kris Kristofferson and Joe Ely, as well as Americana stars Paul


Cauthen, Nikki Lane, and Leon Bridges. The album TX Jelly was recorded at FAME Studios and marks the first original project from the Gents. It's a massive collection of style and influence that ranges from nightclub pop to Southern country-funk. Bandleader and producer Beau Bedford assembled his hardcore center then put out the all dogs alert for any and every Gent or collaborator available to converge on Muscle Shoals. TX Jelly is what the Gents are and who they can help you be. It's a record and a resume. The sound evolves-- each instrument, every voice, styles, breaks, bridges, major and minor keys, time moving forward then played back, one more from the top, better the last time, one more time... And one mo'gain. Real musicians. Some of those legendary studios that contributed to the Americana identity have disappeared. Others have been resuscitated. But what of those house bands that spent hours, days, weeks, years developing their identities and contributing to the sound? Because that's what the sound is-- it's commitment, repetition, sacrifice, skill--and it's very nearly a lost art. The Texas Gentlemen are a boiling, roiling, constantly evolving entity of hands, hearts, and voices dedicated to that art. Listen to the Gents' new single “Pain” only on 100.9 The Creek. 37
