This documentary, filmed on location on the Hilton Head Island, features interviews with Native Islander elders who reminisce about their lives “back in the day”. They share how their lives were shaped by their families, education, work, the Churches, the Great Northern Migration, military service, work in the oyster factories, farming the land, and how development came to the island after the bridge was built in 1956.
Survivor Glam Squad comes to Bluffton, South Carolina and brings together a super talented group of hair, make-up and fashion stylists to bring awareness to young cancer survivors and their inspiring resiliency at Salon Karma, owned by Danielle Keasling, who serves as the non-profit's Creative Director. Survivor Glam Squad's founder Keely Webster and her wonderful supporters and volunteers provided a day of fun - living up to their name by bringing glamour and style to those survivors who so appreciate and deserve some pampering and support, many of whom have received chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment which has resulted in hair loss and other side effects. Please visit survivorglamsquad.org to see how you can become involved!

At the end of her career as vice president for community development with the YMCA, Judy Mooney returned to the university to study art, began sculpting and found a latent artist within herself. She also found people with stories to tell within the clay in her hands. Judy’s hope is that each sculpture gives new insight or joy at remembering an old familiar story or learning a new one. Her work is realistic figurative sculpture inspired by the people she portrays and their stories. Judy now also creates numbered and limited edition bronze sculptures.
Since 2001, Judy’s work has been exhibited at numerous prestigious galleries, cultural and educational institutions including Brookgreen Gardens, the Telfair Museum of Art, the Beach Institute, the Penn Center Museum, the Walter Greer Gallery at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, the Avery Resource Center at the College of Charleston, South Carolina State University’s I.P. Stanback Museum, Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn, and Savannah College of Art and Design’s Pinnacle Gallery.
Judy’s work is part of the permanent collections at the University of South Carolina- Beaufort and the York W. Bailey Museum at Penn Center in St. Helena, SC. Gallery representation include Friedman’s Fine Art, Local Color in Savannah, Georgia, Four Corners Fine Art in Bluffton, SC and Atelier Gallery in Charleston, SC. judymooney.com
