Even though the Palustris Arts Festival—Moore County’s celebration of the arts—was cancelled for 2014, there are a few events that were already on the calendar that you can’t miss! So, check them out below and look out for the plans for the Palustris Arts Festival in 2015!!!
Art Exhibit by Denise Drum Baker
Hastings Gallery / Boyd Library
Sandhills Community College
3395 Airport Road, Pinehurst
It’s quite fitting that the new art exhibit at SCC be named Lasting Impressions because it’s the farewell art show from Professor Denise Drum Baker, who is retiring from SCC after a 25-year career. The exhibit consists of over 40 prints by Baker who says print making was always her first love. “Print making brings together so many art disciplines, starting with drawing,” Professor Baker says. “I’m not a patient person but I have to be patient with the process of print making.”
Exhibit Schedule: March 26-27 (8a-9p); March 28 (8a-5p); March 29 (8:30a-2p).
Limited edition prints are for sale. Admission is free.
For more information on this event, please contact Sandhills Community College at 910-692-6185 or visit www.Sandhills.edu.

Foghorn Stringband is the shining gold standard for American stringband music, with seven albums, thousands of shows, over a decade of touring under their belts, and two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. Through all this, they’ve never let the music grow cold; instead they’ve been steadily proving that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration.
