Colorfest, Dillsboro Fine Arts & Crafts Fair, is looking for artists of all mediums to participate in the 6th annual fine art festival to be held on Oct. 4, in the historic town of Dillsboro. Regional fine artists and crafters are encouraged to apply.

Within the colors of autumn, the town of Dillsboro will welcome visitors to this walk-about town where the artisans will be displaying their works. ColorFest participants will be showcased in a new format for this festival, where they will be set up continuously and conveniently on Front Street. Church Street will be sectioned off for food booths.


Western Carolina University’s Department of Chemistry and Physics will host an evening telescope viewing party beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 4, at the Jackson County Airport overlooking the WCU campus.

Part of the 2014 North Carolina Science Festival, the event is designed to give members of the campus and surrounding communities an up-close view of stars, the moon and the planets Mars and Jupiter through telescopes at various magnifications.

Enrique Gomez, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at WCU, will give a brief presentation on identifying well-know constellations and stars that can be seen in the sky during the spring season.


The School of Music at Western Carolina University will present a concert by the Flute Ensemble on Saturday, April 5.

The ensemble is led by Eldred Spell, professor of flute at WCU, and graduate student Christine Hughes.

The group, which is composed of nine students from the flute studio, will perform two flute quartet pieces – “Beach Music” by Catherine McMichael and “Orientale” by Melvin Lauf Jr.


The Western Carolina University Low Tech Ensemble will perform a concert of gamelan music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 10, in the recital hall of the Coulter Building on the WCU campus.

Although some form of gamelan music can be heard in many regions of Indonesia, selections for this concert will be traditional music in the style of Central Java. Most of the instruments are made of iron and are metallophones (sarons, slenthem, gender), racked gongs (bonangs and kenongs) or hanging gongs (gong ageng, kempuls).
