Rock Hill event celebrates food and art

They're putting the art in artisan: The Rock Hill group that calls itself Friday Arts Project is using a Friday and Saturday Jan. 31-Feb. 1 for "Dazzle Gradually: The Allure of Poetic Truth-Bearing."

I'm not exactly sure what that is, but it promises to celebrate "poetry, story, music, visual art and feasting," and it further promises to include local-food businesses including Orrman's Cheese Shop, The Assorted Table Wine Shop, Amelie's, Your Mom's Donuts and barbecuer Dan Huntley.

Speakers will include peach farmer and writer Dori Sanders, writer Tommy Tomlinson, singer/songwriter  Sandra McCracken, poets Maurice Manning and Aaron Belz, artist Paul Matheny, performance artist Jon Prichard and musician Hunter Holmes.

Tickets to the weekend-long forum range from $125 to $200 ($95 for students), or you can get a ticket to the Saturday evening feast for $65, including wine pairings, or the Friday night concert only for $20.

Registration deadline is this Saturday, Jan. 25, and you can get the details here:
