Art on the River – an exhibit of works Inspired by the Saluda – was a great success!
November 20, 21 & 22: Local and international artists displayed a wide variety of amazing paintings, photographs and silverwork at the Chickawa Outdoor Center within Saluda River Club. Opening night was attended by over 100 people who mingled with the artists, visited with friends and neighbors and enjoyed a beautiful moonlit evening on the banks of the Saluda. The show continued to draw art enthusiasts and buyers as throughout the weekend.
Art on the River not only showcased the outstanding talents of the artists and the beauty of the venue, it also allowed Lifestone Communities, the developer of Saluda River Club, to give back to the local arts community. A portion of the proceeds from the art sales will be donated to the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties. The Council helps to promote and enhance the arts in Richland and Lexington Counties, South Carolina.
“It was a wonderful event! We enjoyed working with the artists and with Saluda River Club to promote the weekend’s activities.” Betsy Sheppard, B.Sheppard Consulting.
Sometimes all it takes is a little positive encouragement. When stories of gloom and doom dominate the headlines, stories of good news are often overlooked. Recently, B. Sheppard Consulting was asked to write a success story highlighting the achievements of one of their clients in the housing industry. The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) asked B. Sheppard Consulting to draft a success story for their 50+ online newsletter. Thrilled to share some words of encouragement, B. Sheppard Consulting President, Betsy Sheppard and Copywriter, Karla Zientowski collaborated on a piece highlighting the unparalleled sales success of Saluda River Club, an innovative mixed-development community located in Lexington, SC. According to Ann Marie Moriarty, Director of Communications for Multifamily and 50+ Housing at the NAHB, “The story was the most fun to work with….the photos were great, the copy was clean – your folks were so responsive to my last minute request for more photos – a good experience all around. Thank you!”
