TWENTY: Contemporary Art From South Africa.  Exhibition from 7/11/2014 – 02/7/2015 at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, Community Gallery, Main Gallery, Mezzanine Gallery, East Wing. On the Campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.  As South Africa celebrates its 20th year of democracy, having made a peaceful transition from apartheid state to a new and more equitable dispensation, this show seeks to show a slice of South African existence through contemporary art. While it is in celebration of this milestone, the exhibition itself does not necessarily unpack the notion of democracy but rather looks across the scope of what it means to have been a South African over the last 20 years. The show thus explores issues of social conditions, like land issues, HIV/Aids and resistance art and juxtaposes these with more positive aspects like the Mandela years and the influence of traditional craft on contemporary South African art.

Touching the Face of History: The Story of the Plott Hound, North Carolina’s Official State Dog PLUS Mountain Ballads & Music!Plott Hound

At the Watauga County Public Library – Meeting Room. On Saturday, August 23rd at 2:00 PM, the Watauga County Public Library in association with the North Carolina Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities will welcome Road Scholar Bob Plott. Bob Plott is an award winning North Carolina native who has published several books on hunting and the premier big game hunting dog breed in America – the Plott Hound.

The Plott bear hound is the official state dog of North Carolina and is widely recognized as one of the world’s premier big game hunting hounds. The breed is unique in many ways, including its Germanic origins, distinctive appearance, fierce loyalty, tenacity, and intelligence. But it is the story of the breed that truly sets it apart from all others.

The story begins in 1750 when the breed’s original founder, Johannes George Plott, and his brother Enoch, left Germany with their prized hunting dogs. Their trip across the Atlantic began the two-hundred year journey that would culminate in the mountains of North Carolina with the development of what is now considered by many to be the world’s finest breed of hunting dog.

This fascinating story of the Plott family and the Plott hound is a classic American tale of adventure with roots deeply entrenched in North Carolina soil and American history and culture. And it is a story that award winning author and historian Bob Plott, the great-great-great grandson of Johannes George Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell.

Sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council.

For more information, call 828.264.8784.

A Special Treat:Bob will be accompanied by William Ritter, an outstanding young musician and mountain scholar who will share music and Mountain ballads!
