It’s a busy spring at the Fine Art Museum at Western Carolina University, with exhibits, receptions and a sale of handmade items all in April. The annual juried exhibit of artwork by WCU students will run from Thursday, April 7, to Friday, May 6, at the museum. An opening reception and award ceremony for that exhibit will be held at 4 p.m. April 7 in the Star Lobby adjacent to the museum, located in the Fine and Performing Arts Center.


The Scottish Museum will celebrate “Tartan Day,” April 6th, commemorating the signing of the “Treaty of Arbroathe,” the document of Scottish Independence signed by the Scottish chiefs in 1320. The museum features a copy of the Treaty in its collection.

According to historian Arthur Herman, the Bishop of Abroathe sent the Treaty to the Pope, who was the strongest secular and religious leader in Europe at the time. The Treaty proclaimed separation from England and gave Scotland relief from English advances for several hundred years.


Approximately 200 people turned out Saturday night at the Spring Fling musical event.

Held at Franklin’s Slagle Memorial Building, the show featured bands from across the region.

Punk band Eureka California (from Athens, Ga.), progressive group Crow vs. Hawk (Franklin/Asheville), heavy New-Wave band Total War, jazzy-dance rock band The Unawarewulves played throughout the night.


“Jazz It Up,” a concert by saxophonist Lloyd Weinberg and vibraphonist Paul Babelay, was presented Thursday, March 17, at 8 p.m., in the main hall of the Macon County Public Library.

The program spanned jazz styles from Dixieland, Latin and Swing, to contemporary works, including classics like “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Take the A Train,” with an audience participation tribute to Saint Patrick’s Day.
