Meet Clint McNeal

We’re pleased to announce our 2018 SEWE Ambassador, Clint McNeal. Clint will join us in the field for the entire SEWE weekend to show fans a behind-the-scenes look at the exposition, including invite-only events, performances and venue grounds.

A Georgia native turned Charleston local, Clint is a private lands conservationist, sportsman, and freelance writer. A former wildlife biologist and land conservation specialist with the Georgia Conservancy, Clint now owns his own land conservation consulting firm, through which he assists landowners through the conservation easement process.

When not working to protect land, Clint can be found exploring The South from the mountains to the coast – usually with a fly rod, bow-and-arrow, or gun in his hand. You can follow along on his outdoor adventures throughout the South and abroad on Instagram: @clint_mcneal.

Join us in welcoming Clint to the SEWE team. If you see him around town, say hi!

SEWE Marketplace

Artisans, Craftsmen and Southern Tastemakers at the Gaillard Center

SEWE will once again utilize the Charleston Gaillard Center. This superior performance hall and event space will house SEWE’s live performances as well as the SEWE Marketplace, a curated collection of outstanding local, regional and national artisans and craftsmen. The Marketplace will include a varied mix of creations, including handcrafted furniture, woodworks, nature photography, knife makers, jewelry and more.

Take a piece of SEWE home with you – goods at the Marketplace range from ethically source African jewelry and bags from Norton + Hodges and handcrafted fly rods from Hollifield Bamboo Fly Rods, to custom hammered metalwork by Ben & Lael and exquisite woodworking by Landrum Tables.

A large number of highly sought after knifemakers will be on site, which typically sell out during SEWE weekend – we suggest to check these out early in the weekend.

See the full list of artisans and craftsmen at SEWE 2018 here >>.

Visit the SEWE Marketplace and take a piece of SEWE home with you this February. Get your tickets today.

Materials Reimagined

New to SEWE and the SEWE Marketplace, Meadors, Inc., based in Charleston, South Carolina, has been working for over thirty years focusing on historic preservation, architecture, design and construction.

The company recently introduced a product line inspired by the materials they use every day in preservation and architectural design and transformed them into striking, yet versatile serving boards that embody the art of entertaining in the South. The collection exudes warmth and style using high-quality materials with soul that can be passed down from generation to generation. Copper and walnut are naturally beautiful, antimicrobial, and sustainable. Made locally in the Meadors, Inc. shop, each serving board comes with its own story, and is intended to be the centerpiece around which new stories are created.

Learn more about the company and its exquisite products here >>.

And don’t forget to check them out during SEWE 2018 at the SEWE Marketplace at the Gaillard Center.
