The Parks & Recreation Department is bringing more art to North Myrtle Beach. Artists Everywhere is a monthly art display at City Hall to showcase our local artist’s talent and provide beautiful public displays for our residents and visitors. We are working hard to put together a great line up of local artists varying from painters, to sculptors, to potters, and much more.
The Parks & Recreation Department is proud to present the art created by:
James “Jimbo” Newton
Jimbo was born in Rockingham, NC. As a child he spent his summers along the Grand Strand. He came to appreciate the natural beauty of this area which inspired his creative tendencies. Jimbo followed his passion when he moved permanently to North Myrtle Beach at 18, and continued to develop artistic talents in art and design.
Currently he can be found on Main Street as co-worker and stylist of Salon Edge. In the past you may remember at The Wildflower, a local art co-op the he founded. On any given day you could catch him painting a piece of furniture, oil painting, or just chatting with visitors. As an accomplished painter Jimbo studies at N.G. Art Studio with Nancy Grumman.
In addition he travels both nationwide and internationally studying culture, design, and fine art. As a student he continually develops his craft. That along with his affable personality and optimistic view of the world around him makes Jimbo a favorite in the local scene. With the sale of his art he supports a variety of local charities including Brookgreen Gardens, The Burroughs & Chapin Art Museum, The Grand Strand Humane Society, and Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary.
Be sure to stop by City Hall and view his wonderful work!
