The MACK to Present: Pushing Boundaries II
An Exhibit of Oil Paintings by Local Artist, Joni Purk

THE EXHIBIT IS now on display Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm October-December 2020 at the McCormick Arts
Council. (115 South Main Street McCormick, SC 29835). Masks, social distancing and all Covid-19 restrictions apply.

Meet the Artist: Joni Purk

SOUTH CAROLINA ARTIST and member of the Oil Painters of America, Joni Purk is self-taught.
Subsequent studies included a 13-year instruction from Midwest artist, Eugene Woods; college courses; and
nationally-recognized workshops. Her first year of instruction was strictly the mixing of colors, and she
maintains this was the key to her recognition of color theory and technique.

In 2001, Joni decided to take her business to a full-time status and hasn’t looked back. She has been co-
owner of a gallery in Charleston, owner of a gallery in Charlotte, and supports the arts in all of her communities.

Joni says, “I have always been intrigued by the process. Everything in nature excites me. I limit my medium but find joy in all subject
matter. My work in oil incorporates many different techniques, textures, and forms. I try to create a feeling or an emotion in each painting.
It may be an energy, a silent and peaceful state, happiness, or contemplation. I love to study my subject through layers of monochromatic
color to learn the essence of the piece, followed by the final layer where creativity is achieved.

“When an individual purchases one of my works, I strive to make it possible for the buyer/viewer to have a strong connection making
this an investment that lasts a lifetime.”

Solo Exhibition at the MACK in McCormick, SC. 'Pushing Boundaries II', Oil Paintings by artist, Joni Purk. All works on display 25%
off through December 2020 then will revert back to original pricing.•

Dave Markle Crowned 2020 SLV-MGA Match Play Champion!

by TOM KNOWLSON

GARY PLAYER ONCE said “The harder I work the luckier I get!” It looks like the
same formula worked for Dave Markle this year.

That thought may have crossed the mind of the SLV-MGA 2020 Match Play
Tournament Champion, Dave Markle. He finished up the match by winning on the
18th hole of an intense back and forth battle with Keith Wise. When asked about
how he managed to win in both the doubles and the singles match play tournaments
he said, "It was mostly luck!"

Is that all there is for the SLV-MGA league now that the formal member play has
ended? NO WAY! It has been a challenging season, but here is a summary of what
you missed:

a. Opening Day Breakfast f. Three Scramble Tournaments, 2, man, Congratulations, Dave Markle!
b. Nine individual play competitions, 3 man & 4 man 2020 SLV-MGA Play Champion

including a two day championship g. Two (2 day) Stableford Tournaments Silly Golf Rules for Seniors
c. Twelve Team Play Tournaments, plus h. A Black Tee Challenge #7 G (15)
i. A season long Covid-19 Points
one Turkey Shoot There is no penalty for a ball in a water
d. Five WGA/MGA mixed events, plus Tournament hazard, as golf balls should float. Senior
j. End of the year Prime Rib Banquet – golfers should not be penalized for
the challenge for the men L manufacturer’s shortcomings
(The WGA won!) to be held after Covid-19 Ten Best Caddie Responses:
e. Three Member/Member Tournaments restrictions end. Golfer: “Please stop checking your watch all
the time! It’s too much of a distraction!”
Now if you want to get in on the action our informal MGA play begins in Caddie: “It’s not a watch! It’s a compass!”
November, you don’t have to be a member. The 2nd Covid-19 points tournament has
already begun, don’t be left out.•

TENNIS/PICKLEBALL COMMITTEE

Green Netters Bring Enthusiasm and Excitement About Tennis

by LANA SNELLGROVE
photos by Linda Vanderford
SEVERAL YEARS AGO, the Green Netters Program was established as the brainchild of
tennis player Mike Lusby. After running the successful program for several years, Mike took
a break from the weekly activity. The spring of 2021 will find Mike and his wife, Marsha,
picking up the reigns once again and attracting a number of players to the courts on Wednesday
mornings at 11:00. Mike explained the program, “It is designed for new tennis players who
want to learn the sport and for returning players who want to practice their skills.” Mike sets
up the two hour session so that participants work with the ball machine for the first hour and
enjoy some match play for the second hour. “We like to see folks come regularly, but are always
looking for some new faces, as well. We had a great turnout last week and had a lot of fun!”
added Marsha. Encouraging tennis at SLV is important to Mike and Marsha. They have even
been willing to come out in the evening to work with individual players who are still employed
and working during the day. This dynamic duo continues to support and encourage tennis at
SLV and hopes that their enthusiasm is contagious. Come out to Green Netters by signing up
on the reservation system or calling the Recreation Center. If you have questions or need some
encouragement, call Marsha (423-676-3201) or Mike (423-676-4020).•
