The Gallery at Flat Rock Presents March Art Madness
In a spirit of extreme non-competitiveness, the team of artists represented by The Gallery at Flat Rock will get focused on the inspiration that spring fever brings in a special month of “March Art Madness.” This first-ever month-long art obsession will launch March 3, with artists taking their respective art forms to the floorboards of the gallery in what promises to be a riotous display of creative activity.
Crafted as a stimulating cultural alternative to the endless mind-numbing basketball of that other March event, March Art Madness will get viewers involved with a free raffle offering a $150 prize for the art fan who clocks the most visits to witness artists in action as they show off their skilled finesse in paint, clay, wood and drawing media on the gallery floor.
Here’s how it works: March 3 through March 31, 2018, artists will be sweating out artwork from 1-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 1-3 p.m. Sundays, with pairs of artists stacked in two-hour time slots of jam-packed invention and creation. March Art Madness is free and open to the public.
The Gallery at Flat Rock represents finely curated art and craft, and is located in Flat Rock Square at 2702-A Greenville Highway in Flat Rock, North Carolina. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; or by appointment. For more information on the gallery and March Art Madness please visit the website at www.galleryflatrock.com or call 828.698.7000.

Fashion from Titanic the Movie
February 9 – May 13, 2018
The stylish fashions and luxurious travels of the Vanderbilts launch at Biltmore with a stunning new exhibition, Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie. Dazzling costumes from the iconic film—representing the extensive wardrobes required by transatlantic travelers like George and Edith Vanderbilt in the early 1900s—will be displayed in the grand rooms of Biltmore House. This is the first large-scale exhibition of fashions from Titanic, which won a record 11 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Costume Design.
More than 45 film costumes evoke the lifestyle of the era, when voyages on the great ocean liners of the early 20th century offered high society and luxury on ships known as “Floating Palaces.” First class passengers took every opportunity to see and be seen in the finest fashions of the time, from strolling the promenade deck to attending elegant formal dinners. And, just like in Titanic, the days at sea fostered friendships and romances, including Vanderbilt’s courtship of Edith Stuyvesant Dresser.
Learn more about the Vanderbilts’ extensive travels while marveling at the exquisite detail meticulously recreated for these award-winning fashions.
Entry to this exhibition is included in Biltmore admission. Save $10 per admission ticket when you buy 7 or more days in advance.

Join other young professionals from across the Upstate as we pique your interest in impacting our community and region.
The ten county Upstate including Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, and Union counties is home to numerous young professionals. The millennial generation (ages 21-39) is quickly surpassing the Baby-Boomer generation and they will soon be our region’s leaders.
For this reason, Ten at the Top realized the importance of creating an opportunity for young professionals to connect with other young professionals from across the Upstate, meet Upstate business and community leaders, and provide valuable personal and professional development opportunities. To this end, Ten at the Top began hosting an annual regional young leaders event called the PIQUE with a goal of bringing together existing young professional groups from across the Upstate.
The networking receptions will be hosted by 13 Stripes Brewery with food provided by Cribbs Catering. Each registration includes two drink tickets for those 21 and up. Soft drinks and water will also be available.
For more information, please visit the event website, www.thePIQUE.org. To become a sponsor or a partner young professional group, contact Briana at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The works in Unnatural History are portals backwards or forwards (or sometimes both at once) in geologic time, offering visions from before, after, and during the tenancy of humankind. Dioramas of cast resin depicting bizarre plants and animate slime suggest a post-human period wherein nature reclaims the planet. Artificial geodes made of oil paint, latex, foam, and soil transport viewers into a distant future where industrial waste has become fossil evidence of human activity. Abstract wall sculptures use motor and crude oil as raw material in the depiction of the vast, intricate industrial landscapes of the near future, while wooden mosaics made of materials salvaged from hurricane-affected cities and reconstructed glass objects found on beaches suggest a possible utopian remedy to decline, decay, and disintegration. Overall, the exhibition underscores and illustrates the many ways in which the technological processes of mass mining, manufacturing, resource extraction, and large-scale industrial agriculture have altered not only the present, but also the future history of our planet.
