Tuning Up: Tom Stanley exhibition + repurposed harbor trash

Good morning!  "Tuning Up" is a morning post series where The Hub delivers curated, quick-hit arts stories of interest to readers. Sometimes there will be one story, sometimes there will be several. Get in tune now, and have a masterpiece of a day. And now, in no particular order...


Looking for a little structure? Hampton III Gallery delivers. Tom Stanley: Structures begins a week from tonight with a reception from 7-9 p.m. The Winthrop/Rock Hill artist received a Verner Award this past spring for his body of work. He'll also be present for "coffee and conversation" Saturday, Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to noon. 3110 Wade Hampton Blvd., Taylors. Free. Many people's trash is a few people's art. Plastic scraps from Charleston Harbor made for trashy art in a Lowcountry contest (Post & Courier).
