Arts & Entertainment

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.



`North Carolina potter Mark Hewitt will hold ceramics demonstrations and give an artist’s talk Thursday, Feb. 13, at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.

Demonstrations of the art of throwing ceramics will be in Room 151 from 9:30 a.m. until noon and 1:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. Hewitt will give an artist’s talk at 5 p.m. in Room 130.

Hewitt’s visit to the WCU School of Art and Design is funded by the Randall and Susan Parrott Ward Endowed Fund for Ceramics. All events are free and open to the public.

Born in Stoke-on-Trent, England, Hewitt is the son and grandson of directors of Spode, makers of fine china. In the early 1970s, he decided to become a studio potter rather than an industrial manager and began apprenticeships with leading ceramic artists in the United States. He and his wife, Carol, moved to Pittsboro in 1983 to set up their pottery studio.


Western Carolina University will present Imago Theater’s “FROGZ,” a family-friendly show that combines Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatics with outlandish masks, mime and music, on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center, and tickets are $5 for students and children, and $10 for all others.

With larger-than-life animals taking on human characteristics, “FROGZ” was designed to create a comedic and mind-bending carnival of the absurd that entertains people of all ages.



The Jackson County Arts Council will be hosting a Coffee and Chocolate Reception and Gallery Talk for artist Matt Liddle, Thursday, Feb. 13, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Rotunda Gallery in the Historic Courthouse, Jackson County Library Complex. Liddle will be talking about works in his exhibit, “Selected Prints,” now showing at the Rotunda Gallery through March 6. This exhibition features original prints produced over the past five years. The exhibition includes work in a variety of print media, including relief, screen print, photopolymer intaglio and vitreography. The images range from the figurative to the abstract, including Liddle's most recent work printed from pieces of pegboard. In these works, the surface of the pegboard has been cut and printed like a reduction woodcut, with colors being overprinted in layers. As each layer is cut and overprinted, the previous color is revealed.
