Barbara Mann: Transformation & Evolution

Wiregrass Museum of Art and Conference Center
Barbara Mann has had over 35 years’ experience as a metal and jewelry artist. Her work represents highly rendered visions of movement within nature. Of her work, Mann says, “The objects that I make tell a story, relate a concept or record an observation. The subjects that interest me seem to remain constant: nature, science theories and discoveries, the beauty of form, materials and detail. The visual and physical elements in the immediate environment are starting points. The process of making an object is pure pleasure. I strive for excellent craftsmanship and the ability to distill a discovery of seeing or perceiving.”

She graduated from the University of Georgia with BFA and MFA degrees and has taught for many years as an adjunct instructor at UGA Lamar Dodd School of Art. She has also taught with the UGA Studies Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy and in Costa Rica; through the UGA continuing Education program; and with Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. In addition, she has conducted numerous workshops throughout the Southeast.

Mann’s work is in many collections including The Mint Museum of Art, The Georgia Museum of Art, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and The Committee for the Olympic Development of Atlanta, and Nations Bank. Barbara is currently president of the Athens Metal Arts Guild.

Mann will also be hosting a Cuttlefish Casting Workshop on Saturday, October 17, 10am – 4pm. For more information on the casting worshop, click on this link to our website:

The preparedness and safety event features several awareness displays and demonstrations to help citizens see how a few simple steps now can increase safety and emergency preparedness in homes, businesses and communities throughout the county. Emergency response vehicles and resources, such as the mobile command post, hazardous materials vehicles and the Enterprise Fire Department’s “Fire Safety House” will be on site. We will also have a “Don’t Text and Drive Simulator” sponsored by Mitchell Hyundai and State Farm Insurance that graphically shows the dangers of texting while driving.

Free safety preparedness “how to” literature such as how to build an emergency supply kit and develop a family emergency communications plan will be distributed. Information regarding fire safety and prevention as well as information on preparing for natural disasters such as floods and tornadoes will be available. Upcoming training opportunities which promote community preparedness such as first aid, CPR and storm spotting classes will be announced.

The Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday is part of National Preparedness Month (September) which is a “whole community” approach to disaster response. As part of the month’s activities, CC EMA and CC CERT and one our corporate sponsors, Mitchell Hyundai, are sponsoring a poster contest open to all children in grades 1-6 who live in Coffee County. The theme for this year is “Don’t Wait – Communicate: Make Your Emergency Plan Today,” focusing on taking simple, but potentially life-saving steps to enhance preparedness. The following rules concerning the posters must be followed:
• Posters can be NO LARGER than 11 x 14
• Posters should be submitted on quality poster illustration board or heavy paper
• Entries must use crayons, magic markers, or colored pencils only. Posters with stencils, computer-generated or traced letters or images, or commercial stick on letters or images will not be accepted.

Destin Library 75th Anniversary

Destin Library
The Destin Library will celebrate its 75th Anniversary with an open house and ice cream social on Friday, August 21, beginning at 1 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

The library was established in 1940, by a group of dedicated volunteers who worked tirelessly to promote reading through the sharing of books within the community. The library’s original collection was donated by Al Fox and Fred Zerbe and his wife Donalda. Many of these books are on display in the reading area.

On August 21, staff and *Friends members will turn time back to the 1940’s. Gone for the day will be items we all take for granted such as: computers, DVDs, Books on CD, Microfilm, Copier machines and more. Replacing these will be bulletin boards and displays that depict vintage books, activities, games from the era.

A “back to future” room will allow visitors to “move from the 40’s to the present” as a way of highlighting all that has changed in 75 years.

1940’s music will be played throughout the library and tours of the library and its grounds will be provided by volunteers and staff for interested visitors.

*Friends Guild of the Destin Library, Inc.

For further information please contact the Destin Library at 850-837-8572.
