Combat Photography Lecture and Exhibit Coming to The Citadel

A decorated aerial combat photographer and two-time winner of the Military Photographer of the Year award, retired Air Force Staff Sgt. Stacy Pearsall will share her stunning images and the stories behind them at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010, in Bond Hall Room 165 at The Citadel.

Retired Air Force Staff Sgt. Stacy Pearsall will share her stunning images and the stories behind them.

The first event in the college’s Fulghum Lecture Series, this lecture is a complement to the exhibition, “Shooting the Shadows: The Combat Photography of Stacy Pearsall,” on view in the Capers Hall Lobby through October. Selected by visiting Assistant Professor Tiffany Silverman, 12 of Pearsall’s most distinctive photographs are on display and vividly describe the combat experience.

“Combat is chaos, but the camera kept me separated from reality long enough to do the job at hand,” Pearsall said. “First I’d figure out where the light was coming from and then shift my point of view to the shadow side to convey the emotion and drama of the situation. I was always on the shadow side.”

Including Air Force Veteran of the Year, Pearsall has received wide public exposure for her work, including an interview on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and publication in “Newsweek,” “The New York Times,” and on CNN. During three tours in Iraq, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Commendation with Valor for heroic actions under fire. Now medically retired due to combat wounds, Pearsall works worldwide as a freelance photographer and owns and directs the Charleston Center for Photography.

“Shooting the Shadows: The Combat Photography of Stacy Pearsall,” on view in the Capers Hall Lobby through October.

“Shooting the Shadows” is funded by the Charleston Center for Photography, the Fulghum Lecture Series, The Citadel’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and The Citadel Foundation.

The Fulghum Lecture Series was created in 2007 by the Department of History’s Southern Studies Program to promote a better understanding of the American South and to help prepare students to be principled leaders in the region. Leonard C. Fulghum, Jr. of Charleston, Citadel Class of 1951, is member emeritus of The Citadel Board of Visitors and president of Lenwall Enterprises, Inc.

Also coming up this winter as part of the Fulghum Lecture Series will be lectures held in conjunction with the Fort Sumter/Fort Moultrie Trust’s commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Guest speakers James I. Robertson Jr., David Bright and James Lee Conrad will discuss the war commemoration and the role Citadel cadets played in the firing on the Star of the West in 1861 at Morris Island. Details will be released at a later date.

Cutting Edge Creations from Lucy Smith Metal Designs

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2010 by Lowcountry Boil

Lucy Hampe Smith spent the first decade of her career as an interior designer. Known for her creative eye for unique detail, Lucy gathers inspiration from the places closest to her heart, whether it be the whirl of her toddler’s nightgown or the red clay shapes rubbed into the knees of her son’s baseball pants, Lucy finds perfect patterns woven into her very favorite parts of life.

As she watched her husband take a century-old metal fabrication business to thriving new heights with modern laser cutting technology, her inspiration reached a new level. The bright razor-sharp light beams left her with stunning piles of scrap steel. She saw life in the discarded heaps, as they twisted themselves into pure and priceless sculptures. Reflecting light, casting shadows and creating unforgettable shapes, these piles turned scrap steel into new ideas and ultimately her designer line of furniture, Lucy Smith Metal Designs.

Lucy Smith Metal Designs offers metal furnishings with exquisite tops and finishes for the discriminative setting. Combining cutting edge design capabilities with classic finishing techniques, Lucy Smith Metal Designs can create the piece you have imagined. Grand or simple, they can materialize your vision and taste with custom sizing and details that complement the classic or modern space.

Each design begins in the studio and is brought to life with attention to detail and fine craftsmanship in the on-site workshop. Because Lucy Smith Metal Designs are manufactured in-house, items tailored for a specific size and space are created with greater affordability and short lead times. There are also many in-stock pieces for your immediate delivery needs. Lucy Smith Metal Designs is expanding the collection with more originals each week, and collaborative design is available.

Contact Lucy Smith Metal Designs for pricing, special trade options and dealer exclusives. Achieve simple, classic, sleek and modern or old world style with a myriad of finish options. For more information visit or find her design locally in Mount Pleasant at Candelabra Lighting and Home Decor.
