There is plenty to do online and around town this Labor Day weekend. Be sure to wear a mask and socially distance if you’re out and about over the holiday weekend.
Despite what its name suggests, Meyer Vogl’s latest two-person exhibition does not feature the work of actual siblings. The two artists, Lori Putnam and James Richards, do consider themselves to have a sibling-like bond, though. Sibling Rivalry, featuring new work from both artists, opens at Meyer Vogl on Sept. 4. “It seemed about time that we had an exhibit like this. We have such respect for each other’s work, and we enjoy each other’s company and painting together. This new body of work showcases our mutual love for the Lowcountry, our family and good friends,” said Putnam in a press release for the show. Meyer Vogl hosts an all-day pop-in on Sept. 4; masks are required.
Head to Freshfields Village, an outdoor pedestrian village located at the crossroads of Kiawah and Seabrook, for an end of summer sidewalk sale this weekend.

Snag super reduced prices on items at sotres like Coastal Footwear, SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters and Islands Mercantile. Be sure to wear your mask and maintain social distance from others while shopping.

Head out to Tattooed Moose Johns Island for Chicken Poo Bingo every Sunday through the end of October. This family-friendly, socially distant fun is fairly self explanatory: if a chicken poops on your number (purchased for $2) you can win big, aka up to $50 in “Moose Moolah.” See y’all there.
