On Saturday, February 12, Collections: The Bascom and the Hudson Library exhibition closed with a highly successful reception at The Bascom.

Many of the artists featured in the exhibition were in attendance including Linda Anderson, Winter Scene, (given in memory of Norma T. Pierson) and Ken Woodall, Deliverance (Bel Canto donation); Lloyd Owle, The Bird Clan, (The Bascom Collection); and Bo Sweeny, Pato and Wren, (Bel Canto donation).


Highlands Cashiers Players upcoming production of “You know I Can’t Hear You When The Water's Running,” by Robert Anderson, is in full swing, under the watchful eyes of the directors.

The play is a collection of four vignettes, separate stories that are connected thematically, so each of the four scenes has a separate director, working with the supervision of Production Coordinator, Donna Cochran. These seemingly unrelated stories have more in common then they may seem at first, as each segment uses both comedy and drama to address what happens when two people encounter difficult circumstances and bring their differing opinions along with them.


Clay artists in the far western counties of North Carolina will meet on Monday, Feb. 28, at 6:30 p.m. at the Swain County campus of Southwestern Community College to create a clay guild. The guild will be a nonprofit organization aimed at marketing the clay artists in the area as well as providing a means of networking and idea exchange.

Many talented clay artists reside in the far western, seven-county area of Swain, Jackson, Macon, Clay, Cherokee, Graham and Haywood counties, including both those who focus on functional work and as well as pure art.


Poetry Alive! will present a program of poetry performance on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., in the Macon County Public Library Meeting Room in Franklin.

Bringing poetry from the page to the stage, the Poetry Alive! team of two professional actors presents memorized poems in theatrical style, turning verse into script and audience members into fellow actors.
