Arts & Entertainment

To most people, art is a relaxing, expressive activity to be enjoyed in their free time, a luxury that they enjoy to soothe their spirit. Others use it to express a social injustice or a radical ideal to make an impact. For some professionals, it may be a great way to make a living doing something that they enjoy.

To the artist known as Q, it’s an obsession.

To be clear, Q is the first to admit that he can't draw even the simplest stick figure. He's never taken an art class to speak of. He can't paint, has never picked up a paint brush in his life actually, and as no idea how to blend watercolor, pastels, or acrylics.


Licklog Players will present the comedy “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 15-18, at the Peacock Playhouse in Hayesville. The curtain rises at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. This will be Licklog Players final production at the Peacock Playhouse.

The horrible Herdmans are the meanest kids around. They lie, steal, cuss and smoke cigars – even the girls. The last place anyone expected to see them is in church. So when the Herdmans storm Sunday school and take over the annual Christmas pageant, everyone braces for the worst


The 2011-12 Galaxy of Stars Series at Western Carolina University continues with a performance by the Pied Pipers and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, in the Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the WCU campus.

The Pied Pipers and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra will perform their joint holiday show, “A Christmas Gift.” The show, filled with song classics from the World War II era, also will feature holiday favorites performed in the style and tradition of the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra and the Pied Pipers.


Each winter, scores of children from around the world write their holiday wish list to one man—Santa Claus.

The yearly tradition of writing a letter to the big man in red goes back hundreds of years. While the language and style of each letter may vary, the same general theme applies: Maintaining good behavior for a whole year dictates whether the kids get what they asked for.

Reading and answering each letter is no easy task, especially when Claus has the added challenge of getting the desired gifts to deserving youth.
