Ft. Fisher State Historic Site to extend hours to include Sundays Afternoons

KURE BEACH, NC¬—Beginning May 24 through September 4 (Memorial Day through Labor Day), 2016, Fort Fisher State Historic Site will extend its Tuesday through Saturday operating hours to include Sunday afternoons from 12 noon to 5 pm. The site will remain closed on Mondays and on major holidays.
To mark the debut of its extended 2017 summer schedule, Fort Fisher will host a special presentation honoring Memorial Day and the US military. At 2 pm on Sunday, May 29, assistant site manager John Moseley will discuss the fort’s little known role during World War II. The free program is open to the public and will be held in the visitor center.
While dozens of books have been written detailing Fort Fisher’s Civil War experience, much less is known of its role during World War II. The US Army’s association with Fort Fisher in 1941 literally changed the face of the fort and Battery Buchannan forever. Among other things, the presentation will examine the life of World War II soldiers, equipment used during the conflict, and the key role women played both at the fort and during World War II.
All Fort Fisher programming is made possible by support from the Friends of Fort Fisher and its sustaining members Troy and Lori Barbour, Mike McCarley, Tammy and Jack Moore, Brian and Deedra Nunnally, Jim and Catherine Taylor, Patrick O. McCullough, Forrest Goodman, Jr., Wilson Grab, and Ivarlee E. & Thomas E. Mulligan. Fort Fisher, the largest earthen fortification in the Confederacy, once protected the port of Wilmington and the vital blockade running trade on the Cape Fear River. After two massive naval bombardments the fort fell to a Union assault on January 15, 1865. With the capture of Fort Fisher, Wilmington’s port – “the Lifeline of the Confederacy” – was closed to foreign trade. Fort Fisher State Historic Site is located at 1610 Fort Fisher Blvd S, Kure Beach, N.C. 28449.   Fort Fisher State Historic Site is part of the Division of State Historic Sites in the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (NCDNCR), the state agency with a vision to be the leader in using the state’s natural and cultural resources to build the social, cultural, educational and economic future of North Carolina. Led by Secretary Susan Kluttz, NCDNCR's mission is to improve the quality of life in our state by creating opportunities to experience excellence in the arts, history, libraries and nature in North Carolina by stimulating learning, inspiring creativity, preserving the state’s history, conserving the state’s natural heritage, encouraging recreation and cultural tourism, and promoting economic development.
 NCDNCR includes 27 historic sites, seven history museums, two art museums, two science museums, three aquariums and Jennette’s Pier, 39 state parks and recreation areas, the N.C.  Zoo, the nation's first state-supported Symphony Orchestra, the State Library, the State Archives, the N.C. Arts Council, State Preservation Office and the Office of State Archaeology, along with the Division of Land and Water Stewardship.

Cameron Art Museum July/August CALENDAR

She Tells a Story        
Thru September 11, 2016
She tells a story celebrates the work of fifty-two visual artists from CAM’s permanent collection and connects the forms of visual and literary arts. Exploring the catalytic relationship between visual imagery and text, CAM invited fourteen Wilmington-area writers to compose new work inspired by these selections. This juxtaposition of visual with word illuminates how artists communicate their experiences, perspectives and world views through their chosen medium.
This exhibition recognizes these creators by the quality of their work. However, their gender and societal mores within the time they lived shaped their identity as artists, their work and the interpretation of it. By acknowledging and questioning these effects, this exhibition hopes to highlight the many contributions, past and present, of women in the visual and literary arts.
Writers participating in this exhibition include: Anna Lena Phillips Bell; Karen E. Bender; Wendy Brenner; May-lee Chai; Cara Cilano; Amrita Das; Nina de Gramont; Dina Greenberg;  Celia Rivenbark; Gwenyfar Rohler; Emily Louise Smith; Bertha Boynkin Todd; Kelly Rae Williams; and Margo Williams.
 She tells a story is sponsored in part by Corning
Patchwork North America: Paintings by Virginia Wright-Frierson       
Extended thru Sept. 11, 2016
From extensive travel by road and by air, Virginia Wright-Frierson (American, b. 1949) has created over one hundred paintings framing scenes, as if looking through a window, across the United States and Canada. She describes her intent, “We do see pollution and trash, factories, car accidents and roadwork, graffiti even on cactus and near petroglyphs, and much of North America is prairie that seems empty and unchanging for miles on end. But what I want to paint is the power of nature evidenced in storms, erosion, rock formations, and water; the adaptation of plants and animals to any environment, from the high mountains and glacial lakes of Banff, Alberta to the deserts of Arizona, the unspoiled vastness and endless variation, and the spirit and celebration of survival.”
 Wright-Frierson’s broad-ranging career is distinguished as painter, award-winning children’s book author, illustrator, and large-scale public installation artist to include her celebrated bottle house inspired by artist Minnie Evans at Airlie Gardens, Wilmington, NC, and her extraordinary ceiling mural of evergreens and aspens reaching for the sunlight, installed at Columbine High School, Littleton, Colorado.
