It’s anniversary time in Port Royal On November 30th, Circa 1838 and Emily Scott Pack Fine Arts are hosting a “Picture Perfect Celebration”, combining Circa 1838’s One Year Anniversary as well as the Grand Opening of Emily Scott Pack Fine Arts studio.
Circa 1838 is located at the end of Paris Avenue in a gorgeous 2 story brick building. The building was erected in 1838 and served as the Customs Building for Port Royal. It was revamped in 2015 and opened as the upscale salon last October. These gals and guys are very proud to reach the first year anniversary.
Emily Scott Pack is a local encaustic painter and photographer that has partnered with Circa 1838 to create a Satellite Gallery inside the Salon. Emily says that “owners, Kim Radke and David Watson agree that their salon’s guests should be able to enjoy beautiful art while their stylist are creating the perfect look for them.”
Salons are a very creative place so the three decided to use the space to create a gallery atmosphere by adding professional art to the walls.
Encaustics is a medium of art comprised of molten bees wax, damar resin, and pigment. This method of painting has been used for hundreds of years, and it is noted as far back as 5bc. Emily learned the art of encaustics while receiving her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Auburn University. Her encaustic works are inspired by her love of the Lowcountry. ” Beaufort is such a beautiful place and has so many inspirational scenes. I just want to breathe them all in and allow others to see them the way I feel them,” she said.
You’ll see a variety of paintings including, a series of oysters, oceanscapes, sunsets, marshscapes and abstracts.
Emily Scott Pack Fine Arts has also recently procured the space above the salon and opened a Fine Art Photography Studio. Emily focuses her photography work on creating, inspiring and empowering women through intimate portraits and custom works of art. She is passionate about creating the ultimate boudoir experience for her clients and loves to show them how amazing and beautiful they are in this very moment.
“This experience helps empower women and build their confidence allowing them to love themselves no matter what”, says Emily.
Her message to all women is that you are perfect the way you are!
Circa 1838 and Emily Scott Pack Fine Arts are excited to welcome everyone to join them in their celebration. Following the Ribbon Cutting at 4pm, there will be Music, Cocktails, Raffles, and a Live Encaustic Demonstration.
Head out to 610 Paris Avenue this Wednesday, November 30th from 4-7pm for some fun.
