midst the history, architecture and special events that dot New Bern’s landscape, there is also an abundant art scene just waiting to be discovered. From 5 to 8pm on Friday, March 11, the crowds will once again take to the streets in search of arts, entertainment and fellowship as ArtWalk welcomes them to downtown New Bern. Held one Friday, every other month, ArtWalk started in 1995 as part of the Governor’s Conference on Tourism and has run almost continuously, with a few breaks along the way, driving interest in the arts and giving visitors a reason to come downtown on a Friday evening. Janet Francoeur, owner of Carolina Creations on Pollock Street, remembers that first event. Musician Dana Scott and friends performed in her store window and people were dancing on the sidewalk, she said. But that’s just one of the special events through the years that has 6

made ArtWalk more popular with each one passing. “All the galleries and shops are within the core business district so you can easily walk. That’s one of the wonderful things about downtown New Bern – the scale,” Francoeur said. “That’s one reason it’s such a wonderful place for tourists, too. They can stay in a downtown hotel or B&B and they won’t have to get into their car until they’re ready to go home.” The proximity of New Bern’s art galleries just lends itself to a walking tour. Eight galleries, within an easily walk-able distance of one another, participate in each event. But the sites don’t just put out the welcome mat and hope for added visitation with their extended hours. Instead, they offer refreshments, special shows, receptions, visits with the artists, demonstrations and workshops. Sometimes, as Francoeur pointed out, you’ll find music. Sometimes you’ll find the unveiling of

a new show. The idea is that you’re never quite sure what you’re going to find – so visitors come back time and time again. “During the March ArtWalk at Carolina Creations we’ll have a glass lampworking demonstration and a book signing with Karen Dodd at Carolina Creations,” Francoeur said. “In May we’ll have a visiting artist, Jude Lobe from Mebane.” Match that with specials and open houses at downtown restaurants and retail establishments and you’ve got the makings of a night on the town. And while everyone is bustling from gallery to gallery, stopping in between to peer in a shop window or grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant, something magical is happening – for a few hours on that Friday night, the heart of the city becomes just that, a vibrant shopping district where people from all reaches of area come together and meet. “People really look forward to the ArtWalks,” said Francoeur. “If one gallery has an opening you might get 100 people to come, if eight galleries have openings you might get 1,000.” While it encourages people to visit their favorite gallery more frequently, it also gives the galleries incentive to change their work more regularly, she added. And that, in turn, gives more fledgling artists the opportunity to have their work seen. Whether you’re looking to add to your art collection, or you’re just eager to get outside and leave the winter doldrums behind, ArtWalk is a great opportunity to get out and meet your neighbors while showing support for the local arts community. As always, ArtWalk is a free event. To learn more, call 252-638-2577.

ABC’s in New Bern

Dr. Savitt is professor of medical humanities at ECU School of Medicine and a published author. A graduate of Colgate University with a bachelor’s degree in history and the University of Virginia with a master’s degree and doctorate in American history, Dr. Savitt also received post-doctoral training at Duke University in the history of medicine and the history of science. Presently, he teaches social and ethical issues in medicine and history of medicine and writes on African-American, Southern and Montana medical history. The program, made possible by a grant from the NC Humanities Council, explores the postCivil War world when the opportunities for former slaves to enter law, medical, education and other professions increased greatly. Several medical schools graduated a number of African-American physicians in the late 19th century. These newly minted physicians then faced the problem of opening viable medical practices among people, white and black, who had never before seen a black doctor. Dr. Savitt’s illustrated program describes the reactions of black patients, white patients, and white physi10

The New Bern Historical Society’s 21st annual ABC (Attic-Basement-Closet) Yard Sale is planned from 8am-1pm on Saturday, March 5, at the Knights of Columbus Building on Pinetree Drive. Everything from dishes to dolls to door knobs will be sold at this one-day-only sale that supports the New Bern Historical Society. Society Director Lynne Harakal is expecting this to be one of the largest ABC Sales ever, as donations have overflowed storage spaces. Value-spotting shoppers eagerly await this huge annual event. Items available include collectables, pictures, furniture, kitchenware, hardware, toys, jewelry, books, linens, silver, seasonal decorations, sporting equipment, electronics, brass, dishes, antiques and much more. Many shoppers are in line by 7am although the doors positively do not open until 8am. A $1 donation is collected at the door for admission.

Dinner & Dancing The 14th annual Senior Dinner, Dance & Silent Auction is planned from 6:30-10:30pm on Saturday, March 19, at the St. Paul Family Life Center on Country Club Drive. The cost is $30 per person. Music will be provided by Bruce Horton and dinner will be catered by The Chelsea Restaurant. The Senior Pharmacy Program began providing services in March of 1993 to eligible seniors age 60 and over in need of assistance with prescription costs that treat chronic illnesses. The program serves people of all faiths. The annual dinner/dance/silent auction is held to raise funds to help our vulnerable seniors in meeting their medication needs. For information about tickets, business donations and/or donations to the silent auction please call Kim at 252-638-2188.

In 2005, New Bern’s Board of Aldermen accepted Dr. Jim Congleton’s request to contribute a public sculpture as a 300th anniversary gift to the town. He commissioned Susan Pascal Beran of California, whose contemporary pieces can be found in many large cities throughout the nation, to design and construct a 29-foot tall sculpture reminiscent of New Bern’s prized spider lily flower in bloom. The spider lily has some importance to New Bern, explained Susan Moffat-Thomas of the Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corp. A man known as “Capt. Roberts” returned from Japan with bulbs that he presented to family members. Over time, they multiplied and were passed on – eventually reaching different areas of downtown. While Dr. Congleton donated the cost of the symbolic sculpture, the expense of erecting it behind the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center adjacent to the Riverwalk was taken on by Swiss Bear.

To date, Moffat-Thomas said about 75 percent of the necessary $40,000 has been raised. But with an April dedication planned, hopes are that the balance can be raised in the weeks to come. The public is invited to “Put It In Stone” and become a permanent part of New Bern’s history. As a contributor to the project, you can have your name engraved on the cap or on one of six granite panels that surround and face the six-sided concrete and steel base of the sculpture as a decorative and functional part of the design. There are four levels of recognition on the granite base ranging from $100 to $3,000. This is the last opportunity, Moffat-Thomas said, to permanently recognize family and friends as a part of New Bern’s 300th anniversary celebration. The contribution form is available to download at or can be picked up at the Swiss Bear office, 316 South Front St. To have a form mailed, or to learn more, call 252-638-5781.

CHERRY BRANCH MINNESOTT FERRY Free Ferry - 20 minutes 30 cars - Year-Round

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 know 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 city’s name, taken from the German word “bären,” or “bears.” 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 Bern’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 C a r o l i n a ’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.

SOUND Oriental Sings the Blues Whether Guy Davis is appearing on Late Night with Conan O’Brien or performing live for 15,000 people, he makes every member of the audience feel like he’s performing exclusively for them. It is this folksy, intimate quality that prompted the San Francisco Chronicle to claim, “Davis’ tough, timeless vocals blow through your brain like a Mississippi dust devil.” Guy Davis is the quintessential blues man, and the Pamlico Musical Society is proud to bring him to Oriental for a performance at the Old Theater at 7:30pm on Friday, March 11. Davis weaves the diverse influences of Blind Willie McTell, Taj Mahal, Fats Waller and Harry Belafonte – among others – into a personal style that captures the real spirit of blues. Listeners will quickly understand why NPR chose Davis’ CD, “Legacy,” as one of the best CDs of the year, and cited its lead track as one of the best songs of the year. Tickets are $15 and available at Croakertown in Oriental and online at pamlicomusic. org. In the event of a sold- out concert, anyone

Tuppence has performed at festivals and concerts from Pamlico County to Poland, bringing their unique folk style to audiences

young and old. Their CDs, “Small Change” and “Give Me Your Hand” will be offered for sale at the concert. The music begins at 7pm and there is a $5 cover charge. Call 252-514-2030 for more information.

Company Takes on Sondheim The sophistication, wit, insight, heart and genius of Broadway’s most innovative and influential artist is at the center of a tribute by the Ratio Theatre Company to composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim. The program features a dazzling array of some of Sondheim’s best-known songs and numbers from landmark shows that revolutionized the musical theatre, including “Company,” “Follies,” “A Little Night Music,” “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum,” “Anyone Can Whistle” and “Pacific Overtures. Also included will be tunes from “West Side Story,” “Gypsy” and “Do I Hear a Waltz.” Sondheim’s music is a challenge for any singer. Consequently, Sondheim shows are rarely presented by schools or community

theatres. The Ratio Theatre Company, however, has found five voices ready to take on the challenge in Emily Klingman, Michael McGinn, Darci McKinnon, Andrea Owens and Bill Saunders. Performances are planned for 8pm on March 4-5 and 11-12 in New Bern, with 2pm matinee shows slated for March 6 and 13. The company is also offering performances at 8pm on March 18-19 in Morehead City. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. For more information, visit

‘Burglars’ in Oriental The Oriental Repertory Company presents Michael Parker’s hilarious farce “There’s A Burglar in My Bed” at 7:30pm on April 8-9 at the Old Theater, Oriental. William Worthington, III and his wife are both going to be away for the weekend from their 200-acre Massachusetts estate with its 26-bedroom mansion, him to Delaware to shoot ducks with the Duponts and her to her mother’s in Boston. Both have, in fact, arranged trysts with their respective lovers in the estate’s beach cottage. Inevitably their paths cross and divorce is in the air. Neither is willing to give up the world famous Worthington necklace, so each devises a plan to steal it. True to the laws of farce, both simulated burglaries are scheduled for the same night. Fun filled chaos ensues – mistaken identities, unlikely romantic liaisons, a bumbling private detective, a fake necklace, one very determined nymphomaniac and two pseudo nuns sharing a single skirt. Who has the real necklace? Who has the fake? Wait for the surprise ending. Tickets are $13 and $10 for Old Theater members and

can be purchased at: Village Hardware and Croakertown in Oriental, the Bank of the Arts in New Bern and the box office at 6pm each night. For more information, email: info@oldtheater. org.

Shakespeare Auditions Set Auditions are planned for March 18-19 for the Carolinian Shakespeare Festival, (CSF) which brings Shakespeare to the stage each summer in New Bern. CSF is seeking adult actors and actresses of all types and ages. All parts are open. Participants are asked to prepare a two-minute speech, Shakespeare preferred, and bring their performance resume with a recent photo attached. Those attending who are unprepared will be given something to read from the script. Producers of the Carolinian Shakespeare Festival (CSF) announced this month its new partnership with Tryon Palace Historic Sites and Gardens to present this summer’s festival at the NC History Center. As presenting sponsor, Tryon Palace will host the 2011 production of “Othello” and other festival events at its new, state-of-the-art Cullman Performance Hall. “I was thrilled when Kay Williams, the director at Tryon Palace, extended this invitation,” said artistic director, Mary McGinley. “From the founding of this festival back in 1998 it has always been my dream to find a way to work with Tryon Palace. We have such similar goals of culture, education and development of visitor interest in New Bern. This seems like a perfect pairing.” CSF is planning to present “Othello” Aug. 4-22. The festival will include a continuation of its History Series with a reading of “Henry IV Part 1” and other events. The educational events include the Young Company training program for high school and college students, who will receive free acting and Shakespeare training from professional artists and participate in performances in the festival. Students wishing to apply for the free Young Company training program should come to these auditions. CSF encourages minorities and people of diverse ethnicities to attend these auditions.
