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.
