Children ages 6 and older will make a small mosaic plate, draw tessellations and create architectural dioramas around a theme of Middle Eastern aesthetics at a free art program to be held at Western Carolina University on Friday, Feb. 21.

The event, “Mosaics and More,” will be held in Room 150 of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Sponsored by WCU’s Art Education Club, the event is staffed by WCU students working with WCU’s art education program coordinator.


This Valentine’s Day at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts the auditorium will be filled with some of the greatest sounds of the golden oldies. Bennie Anderson and The Drifters will be in concert on Friday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m. The Sock Hops will open the evening of unforgettable music and tickets start at $15 each.

The Drifters is a world-famous doo-wop and R&B vocal group. Their hits include, “This Magic Moment,” “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” “Up on the Roof,” and “Under the Boardwalk.” Bennie Anderson sings lead and has been an integral part of the group for more than four decades. George Williams, Ernell Hill, David Wilson, and Andrew Odem complete the group.


An exhibit of artwork by local school students in kindergarten through 12th grade will open Friday, Feb. 28, in the atrium gallery of Western Carolina University’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

A public reception for the exhibit will be held from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at the Bardo Arts Center. The winners of this year’s exhibit will be announced during the reception. WCU art education students and Bardo Arts Center staff members will serve as judges for the entries.

The annual exhibit at WCU is a celebration of Youth Art Month, a nationwide recognition of visual arts programs and the role they play in the nation’s public schools. The student artwork will include drawings, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, basketry, printmaking and book arts. The exhibit continues through Friday, March 21.


Local artist Lizzy Falcon's paintings and sculptures are on display at the Macon County Public Library for the month of February. A reception and conversation with the artist will be held on Thursday, Feb. 13, between 5:30 and 7 p.m.

Falcon's work has a whimsical and emo-like feeling. Thematic threads of her work are grey-toned girls with one big eye, as "Big Eye Art" and the Lowbrow art movement have had a major impact on her. Lizzy uses grey tones for her characters to avoid assigning them race or ethnicity, so that all human beings can relate to them.
