The last Lunch & Learn of the 2012-2013 season sponsored by the New Bern Historical Society and the NC Humanities Council takes place at 11:30am on Thursday, May 9 at the Chelsea Restaurant, 

New Bern Magazine

New Bern. This month’s topic is “A North Carolina Icon Brought to Life: Sea Stories of Sailors Aboard the World War II Battleship North Carolina” presented by Cindy Ramsey. The USS Battleship North Carolina is a favorite tourist attraction in Wilmington, drawing a quarter million visitors every year. It was the most decorated American battleship of World War II, served in every major battle in the Pacific and now stands as a memorial to all North Carolina veterans who lost their lives during that war. And though the ship was a technologically advanced fighting machine, it was nothing without the crew who served aboard the vessel. Author Cindy Ramsey will introduce the audience to some of the boys who became men while manning America’s floating fortress, including North Carolinian Chuck Paty, using her book “Boys of the Battleship North Carolina,” which tells the story of the ship through the eyes of its enlisted crew. For some, the ship was their home for the duration of the war. For others, the ship was the last home they knew.

Prepaid reservations are required for this program. Tickets are $15 for members and $17 for nonmembers. Meal choices are baked haddock with champagne dill cream or lemon chicken. For more information, call the New Bern Historical Society at 252-638-8558.

Car Show

Since its inception there has been something about the sight, sound and feel of the automobile that stirs the imagination and desire to experience the freedom of the open road. Whether it’s the clatter of the single cylinder brass era car or the heavy thumping of big block Detroit muscle cars that fuels the addiction, vintage cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles are a common bond among those in the Antique Automobile Club of America. New Bern is gearing up for the 23rd annual Antique Automobile Club of America Antique Automobile Show, where classic cars take center stage on Middle Street in downtown New Bern. This free event begins at 10am on Saturday, May 11 with an awards ceremony at 1pm. Car enthusiasts with interests in cars that are considered classic, antique or restored are in for a treat with this special event. The First Capital Chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America plans on having a little bit of everything among the roughly 100 cars that arrive each year for the show. Those who make the trek to Middle Street will not be disappointed. With everything from a classically restored Thunderbird to high performance muscle cars from the 1960s on display, visitors are sure to find something that is reminiscent of days gone by, introducing nostalgia through vehicles. Presented in the display of well maintained antique cars will be pre-war, classic contemporary and two seat sport cars. The show is open to anyone with a vehicle 25 years or older, both members and non-members. It will feature cars in categories of modern classics, sport cars, pre-war 10

(1941) and modified or special interest. The registration fee is $20 at the show or $15 in advance. A $10 donation is required for those only wishing to display their bicycles, modified cars and motorcycles. Cars must arrive between 9 and 10am, and judging will begin at 11am, with awards to follow at 1pm. There will be a 50/50 drawing with proceeds benefitting the Auto Technology Scholarship Fund. Event organizer Fred Wagner is excited for this year’s event and awaits the many beautiful cars that will be seen by all in attendance. “I think this year is going to be a great year for this event and I can’t wait to see all the people that make the venture to show off their cars. The selection is always amazing,” said Wagner. The goal of the AACA has been the preservation and enjoyment of automotive history of all types. They encourage everyone that is interested to join the club or visit any of the events. People can become members at any level they wish, and don’t even have to own a vehicle or know how to turn a wrench. Whether it’s joining their judging teams, doing research in the vast library or taking the family through the excitement of a National Meet or Tour, the possibilities are endless.

In a place where boats outnumber its residents nearly three to one, the town of Oriental is a sailor’s refuge tucked away along the Neuse River, which oddly enough, earned its named from a Union Steamship that sank 33 miles north of Hatteras, near Bodie Island. The wife of Oriental’s founder and first postmaster, Lou Midyette, is said to have seen the transom of the vessel displayed years later at a home in Manteo and found it to be the ideal name for their little waterside hamlet. Boats are not just a part of Oriental’s history, they define it. Labeled the sailing capital of North Carolina, it’s common to find residents and visitors kayaking, fishing and sailing year round. Nearly 5-6,000 sailors come in to port each year from the Intracoastal Waterway, many for the collection of regattas held throughout the year. The town boasts a plethora of activities, a wealth of award-winning artisans, an active music scene, a theater group and a thriving community spirit. The year-round ferry, which carries 30 cars, docks at Minnesott Beach, just 10 miles from Oriental, making it accessible to points east and west.

Nestled along Hwy 70 between Morehead City and New Bern, Havelock is best known as the home of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, now the largest air station in the world. From its landmark Harrier plane propped up halfway through town to the thundering sounds of passing jets, there is no mistaking the presence and effect the air station has on Havelock’s visitors and residents. A small community started in the mid-1800s, Havelock grew, in part, because of the union between Atlantic and North Carolina railroads. A depot was built at the crossing and named after British Gen. Henry Havelock. The 1940s and World War II brought with them MCAS Cherry Point and Havelock’s population exploded, from about 100 to approximately 22,500 people. Havelock enjoys visitors year round, with annual events like its NC Chili Festival and the Cherry Point Air Show, held each year in June, and natural attractions such as the Croatan National Forest and Neuse River.

Exploring Tucked away on the banks of the Neuse River, the city of New Bern offers the comforts of a modern riverside city with a historic tradition that dates back to Colonial times. In 1710, Swiss baron Christopher de Graffenried founded New Bern as the second-oldest town in North Carolina, naming the city after Bern, the Swiss capital. The bear proudly displayed throughout the city comes from the Swiss cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, taken from the German word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bärenâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;bears.â&#x20AC;? While providing shopping and dining experiences on par with other major cities, New Bern maintains the spirit and feel of a small town. Visitors can explore 150 historic landmarks, many of which date back to the 18th century. The revitalized historic district offers visitors a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and historic homes. Tryon Palace is one of New Bernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular historic sites. Completed in 1770, Tryon Palace was built by British Governor William Tryon and served as the capital building in the later 1700s when New Bern was North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Tryon Palace hosted many famous people, including George Washington.

New Bern is also famed for a late 1800s pharmacist named Caleb Bradham. Bradham mixed syrup of coca, kola nut extracts and rare oils with carbonated water to create the fizzy beverage known today as Pepsi Cola.

Gallery Presents Jill Eberle

New Bern ArtWorks Fine Art Gallery presents “Imaginings” by Jill Eberle – where the art inspiration of children is graced with classical painting. The paintings will be on view from May 10 through June 30 and a reception will be held from 5-8pm on Friday, May 10 during the downtown Art Walk.

Local artist Jill Eberle has vividly brought to life drawings of monsters created by children in a new series of paintings. In fall 2012 Eberle asked Melissa Giglio, then the art teacher at Arapahoe Charter School, to have her first grade students each draw a monster. Eberle then made a careful tracing of the child’s drawing and interpreted it as a 3-dimensional realistic creature in an environment. Each piece uses classic oil painting techniques and some include imagery from wellknown historical art works. The child’s drawing is displayed along with the painting it inspired, encouraging a delightful game of comparison. “The kids’ drawings are full of imagination,” said Eberle. “As I began developing the tracings, they suddenly appeared rich with character and strong emotions. Creating these paintings has tapped into my own early memories and challenged my representational painting skills as I try to create a logical anatomy and scenario for each creature. It’s a departure from my usual work and it’s been pure fun.” New Bern ArtWorks & Company is located at 323 Pollock St., downtown New Bern. The hours are from 10am-6pm Monday through Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturday. For more information, call 252-634-9002 or visit

Voci Allegre Vocal Ensemble Performs

Craven Arts Council and Gallery has joined Tryon Palace to sponsor the Voci Allegre Vocal Ensemble’s spring concert, “New Bern: Milestones in Music,” at 6pm on Friday, May 31 at the Cullman Performance Hall, NC History Center. Voci Allegre’s concert traces New Bern’s history through music, much of which was known during past times. This sentimental journey starts with the arrival of settlers and moves through the colonial and federal periods. The tumult of the Civil War and the time of the development of an

internationally popular beverage are two of the program’s highlights. Founding director Lorraine Hale and singers Brenda Parker Hardee and Yvonne Templeton will be joined by accompanist Barry Templeton for this musical memoir. The event is free and open to the public. For further information, call Craven Arts Council and Gallery at 252-638-2577.

MUMFEST’s Bold New Look

The Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corporation asked talented local artist and designer Lisa Bisbee to create a new look for MUMFEST 2013. True to her talent, Bisbee has come up with an original and bold design that is sure to please. “Every year during the fall, I take photos of the brilliant autumn foliage. This year’s design is based on a digitally enhanced image,” said Bisbee. “I captured the photograph when the downtown merchants adorned New Bern’s streets with flowering mums during MUMFEST. The bold warm colors remind me of the harvest season during which MUMFEST takes place. I created a silhouette from the leaves and added white highlights with gestural artistic strokes. The font and color palette is energetic and festive, to remind everyone about new adventures unfolding during MUMFEST 2013.” Folks can stop by the Greater Good Gallery at 228 Craven St. in downtown New Bern to see Bisbee’s art or visit www.greatergoodgallery. com.

First Annual Exhibition Celebrated

On Friday, May 10, “Gathering” will be open to the public to celebrate the completion of a large interactive, multimedia installation sculpture. Over the past four months, parents, students and teachers from Craven County Schools have been working each Saturday from 9am until noon under the direction of Blake Wiggs and artist Jane E. Horner. The reception will be held from 5-8pm during the May 10 ArtWalk at the Historic City Laundry Building, located at 901-B Pollock St. Among the works being exhibited is “Bottled Messages,” originally intended to be a classroom project that will be installed in a large tree adjacent to the 901-B building. Teachers and students from Craven Early College and Early College East have constructed 15 strands of 100 plastic bottles, each with a message inside. It is their vision that this sculpture will travel to schools and classrooms as a method of visually representing US plastic bottle consumption per second. “Shine On” is a collaborative installation sculpture led by artist Jane E. Horner, where hundreds of plastic spirals spill down from the ceilings and there are long stretches of shimmering transparency. Projected through these materials is a video of water and the artwork throughout the process of its creation, and an audio track of (cont. on page 20) New Bern Magazine

The presence of plastics in our oceans has proven to be a significant threat to marine life, navigational safety and a potential health risk to humans. Using some of the plastics Bonnie Monteleone has collected from her near 10,000 nautical miles of experiences at sea, she has created 25 feet of canvas art titled “What Comes Around Goes Around.” The exhibit combines science with art to illustrate the compromised environment for the sake of convenience and how discarded plastics can come back in a not-so convenient way.
