  • The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting

    August 15-19, 2014

    Preview exhibition featuring the collection of Duncan Sandys, former Lord Mayor of Westminster and Winston Churchill’s great-grandson

    “You have a medium at your disposal which offers real power, if you only can find out how to use it.” –Winston Churchill, Painting as a Pastime (1921)

    In honor of the 50th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill’s death (January 24, 2015), Sea Island has partnered with The Millennium Gate Museum, Atlanta, and the Churchill family, who have jointly organized an exhibition of the iconic statesman, war-time hero, and Nobel-prize winning historian’s lesser known but equally vibrant triumphs: his paintings, better and more humbly known among his friends and in his writings as his “daubs.”

    Before the full exhibition opens at The Millennium Gate on October 3, 2014, Sea Island will host a special preview tour carefully selected from one of the largest collections of Churchill’s paintings in the world, none of which has ever before been displayed to the public. This unique opportunity invites viewers to explore the relationship between Churchill’s strategic decision-making and his evolving practice as an artist. How did his strengths as an historic leader, innovator, and policymaker affect his painting, and how in turn did his engagement with the visual world, whether with maps, battles, or easel painting, influence his decisions and overall perspective?

    In comparison to previous exhibitions of Churchill’s work, The Art of Diplomacy presents a novel interpretation that places the act of painting at the center of Churchill’s evolving leadership – and, by extension, at the heart of twentieth century history.  

    Exhibit Opening Reception
    Friday, August 15, 5:30 p.m.
    The Cloister Spanish Lounge
    Join us for a first glimpse of these selections from Churchill’s work and chat with the curator accompanying the show.  Complimentary. Reservations required.

    Saturday, August 15–Tuesday, August 19, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
    The Cloister Spanish Lounge
    As Churchill wrote, “If it weren’t for painting I could not live. I couldn’t bear the strain of things.” If he was right – in the words of esteemed art historian Ernst Gombrich – “his painting may have helped to save Western civilization.”  Drop by The Spanish Lounge to view this iconic exhibition.  A museum curator will be on hand.  Complimentary.

    Q&A with Duncan Sandys and Rodney Mims Cook
    Saturday, August 16, 5:30 p.m.
    The Cloister Clubroom

    Join Duncan Sandys, former Lord Mayor of Westminster and Winston Churchill’s great-grandson, and Rodney Mims Cook, President of the National Monuments Foundation, in a dynamic conversation about the legacy of Winston Churchill, the process of exhibition making, and the importance of rediscovering our historical and visual past. Complimentary. Reservations required.

  • Sea Island Food and Wine Series

    Winemaker Dinner – Ridge Vineyards
    August 9, 2014
    6:30-10:00 pm
    Terrace Room

    Located in the high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Ridge Vineyards humble beginnings began first in 1892 when Dr. Perrone planted the Monte Bello vineyard. Purchased in 1954 by a group of Stanford Research Engineers, no one ever imagined what was in the realm of possibilities, including Paul Draper who joined the team in 1969 as the wine maker for Ridge. In 1976 Ridge Vineyards ranked #5 at the Judgment of Paris Tasting for their 1971 Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon, moving to first place in the 2006 Re-Enactment. This vineyard of humble, immigrant beginnings escalated to produce what some have called the best wine in the world.

    August 7, 2014

    6:30-10:30 p.m.
    Rainbow Island

    The Atlanta-based Shadowboxers have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies, and soulful vocals. Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started jamming. Together with drummer Cole McSween and bassist Carlos Enamorado, they've forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D'Angelo, and The Beatles. This young band's unified sound has an R&B-soaked, smart perspective replete with an abundance of vocal talent and songwriting skill. In the short time the quintet has been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy. For more information on The Shadowboxers visit:
