Book Launch at One of a Kind Gallery

Poet Sarah Edwards and Photographer Brady Beck will be featured on Saturday, December 29th, from 4:30 to 6:30 at One of a Kind Gallery in downtown Southern Pines at 128 West Pennsylvania (Belvedere Plaza).  The two will be launching their new book, What the Sun Sees, with poetry by Sarah and nature photography by Brady.  Sarah will read poetry from the new book, and Brady will discuss his photography.  Time will be set aside for questions and answers.  Autographed copies of the books will be for sale at the event.Both Sarah and Brady are well known in the Sandhills area.  Sarah, who is now retired and living in Pinehurst with her husband and cat, writes from the experiences of her very diverse background as an ordained pastor, businesswoman, and flight attendant.  What the Sun Sees has a poetic voice that speaks with love and energy to our care of the planet and relationships among people.  And, on occasion, the poems press the reader to challenge the status quo.  Sarah’s writings have appeared in Kakalak, New Verse News, Minerva Rising, Pilgrimage, Pinestraw, and Conclave.  She is also the author of Pandora, Let’s Talk.

 Brady, who also lives in Pinehurst, is a wildlife biologist working in the Sandhills region of the state.  He holds a degree in Wildlife Science from North Carolina State University and utilizes his skill as a photographer to capture the unique habitats and animals he encounters in his daily field work.  Several of Brady’s amazing wildlife photographs are carried by One of a Kind Gallery and will be available for viewing.

The event is open to the public, but space is limited.  Guests are encouraged to arrive close to the starting time of 4:30.  Wine and light refreshments will be served.  There is no charge for attending.

Meet the Artists Series

On Thursday, November 8th, One of a Kind Gallery will present the next in its Meet the Artists series.  From 4:00 to 6:00, Marilyn Vendemia (oil painter and jeweler) and Anne Crabbe (potter) will be on hand to meet and talk about their art with visitors.  Light refreshments will be served.

Marilyn’s exquisite multi-layered oil paintings in muted colors are about capturing feelings, moods, and energy of nature and our strength in who we are.  Some are abstract, and some are identifiable, but all are beautiful – a visual feast for the observer.  Marilyn also creates magnificent gold and silver jewelry; besides being gorgeous, her pieces are lightweight and so easy and fun to wear.


Gentle curving lines and soft colors are the hallmarks of Anne’s pottery.  She strives for a playful elegance in her work, which is often embellished by painting, slip trailing, carving, and multiple glazes.  Fun to look at – and fun to use.

One of a Kind Gallery is located at 128 W. Pennsylvania (Belvedere Plaza), downtown Southern Pines.  For more information, please call the gallery at (910) 725-0465.
