Arts & Entertainment

Annual non-competitive event staged Saturday.

Macon County youth in 3rd-12th grades participated in a non-competitive talent show last Saturday at the Franklin High Fine Arts Center.

The talent show was a joint project of the Arts Council and the Macon County Board of Education, with proceeds supporting the Arts Councils’s Artist-in-the-Schools Program.

Bryan Smith of Franklin will exhibit work in the watercolor media category at Artisphere, Greenville, S.C.’s premier arts festival.

Smith is a self-trained artist who began his career in oils, at the age of 19. As he participated in the art festival circuit his career quickly advanced. He soon opened his own gallery in St. Augustine, Fla. After a decade of working as a successful owner and director in his own gallery, he relocated to the mountains of Western North Carolina.


“Miwitu” was this year’s production of Cirque at Rabun Gap staged this past weekend at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School in Rabun County, Georgia.

“Miwitu” translates to “jungle” from Swahili and is based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic “Jungle Book.”

Kipling’s version of the story took place in the Indian Jungle, but at Rabun Gap they chose a broader stage — the World jungle to celebrate diversity and uniqueness of the community in which we live.


Collective Spirits, the largest annual fundraiser for The Bascom, A Center for the Visual Arts in Highlands, is announcing the weekend itinerary that includes a new dance party and series of six exclusive in-home dinners. Atlantans Jack Sawyer and Dr. William E. Torres, co-chairs for the 2012 spring benefit, have been busy confirming details for the upcoming May events. The three-day long festival (May 17-19) will culminate in a live auction and gala dinner at The Bascom.

On Thursday evening, May 17, six gracious Highlands/ Cashiers hosts will welcome Collective Spirits Benefactors in their homes for winemaker dinners.

On Friday evening, May 18, guests will be experience a mountain casual walk-around Wine Tasting & Market from 5 to 7 p.m. Then, at 7 p.m., the Sensational Sounds of Motown will take center stage on the Terrace at The Bascom for a night of dancing with a buffet supper.
