  • | 6:30pm - 8:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, Artshow Art Drawing Painting Reception Local Artist
    - From the Austrian Alps, to the coast of Sicily, to a village in Spain, words and art have the power to transport us around the world. They also have the power to bring us back home to a farm in Washington County, Tennessee. Children’s book author/illustrator Rhea Wells ventured far and wide throughout his life, but he always held his hometown of Jonesborough near and dear to his heart. Wells’ work will be showcased in the exhibit Far Away and Close to Home: The Art and Words of Author/Illustrator Rhea Wells which will be on display at the McKinney Center at Booker T. Washington School from January 26 through February 23. The exhibit will be open to the public from 9-5 Monday-Friday and 10-3 on Saturday. Far Away and Close to Home is presented by the Heritage Alliance and is funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    Join us at 6:30 on January 26 for the opening reception. At the event, Randy Sanders, co-curator of the exhibit and the Director of the Reece Museum at ETSU, will talk about "Rhea Wells in the Age of Art Deco," and the Heritage Alliance will share "The Life of Rhea Wells."

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.
