“Tuning Up” is a morning post series where The Hub delivers curated, quick-hit arts stories of interest to readers. Sometimes there will be one story, sometimes there will be several. Get in tune now, and have a masterpiece of a day. And now, in no particular order…
The Hub generally doesn’t delve into exhibitions because of volume and their (no offense) rather ubiquitous nature. (Plus, that’s why we offer Arts Daily.) However there are exceptions, so let’s briefly cover those.
- Newsworthy exhibitions. This is a must because The Hub is a news website, and we have a journalism degree. Yesterday’s post about West Main Artists Co-op? First juried exhibition = newsworthy.
- The other exception? South Carolina Arts Commission Fellows. #SCartists who receive that particular recognition for artistic excellence get promoted as we can, and The Hub caught wind that two are or will be exhibiting. So let’s get you information on those.

MICHELLE VAN PARYS: BEYOND THE PLANTATIONS | Oct. 4, 2019 | Boone, N.C.
The mountains? In the fall? Check and check. You’ll have to act quickly on this one, as it runs only Oct. 4 and only from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Turchin Center for the Performing Arts at Appalachian State University (in conjunction with Boone’s Art Crawl). Van Parys will provide an overview of her work as a photographer working with a large-format film camera in the American landscape.
