Artists Spotlighted in Laurinburg Exhibit
Southeastern North Carolina holds many treasures, and the Storytelling Arts Center of the Southeast hopes to spotlight just a few of them.
Artists Gene Locklear, Charles McNeill and Bettie McNair will display their work during an exhibit that will run May 16–26. The gallery exhibition will culminate in a weekend festival that features nationally known storytellers and musicians.
The Storytelling Arts Center of the Southeast is calling for talented local artists to submit their original pieces for review. If the pieces are chosen by the jurors, they will be on display throughout the exhibit and festival.
Artists should drop off works by May 10 at 131 S. Main St. in Laurinburg at the Storytelling Arts Center of the Southeast. Call the center at (910) 877-3599 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details and entry forms.
Admission to the exhibit is free and open to the public.
“Tunes, Tales and Tapestries” will end with a three-day festival of nationally known artists, musicians and storytellers. Festival-goers will also be able to listen to the Scottish fiddling of Jamie Laval, the suave jazz of Big Daddy Rhythm and the Heavyweights and the flute of Jonathan Ward. They’ll also hear stories from African, Native and Scottish culture performed by Hannah Harvey, Mardella Lowry and Tyris D. Jones.
