Written by 

art tadpolesThe Waynesville Public Art Commission will hold a dedication of a new public art piece entitled “Chasing Tadpoles” during the Frog Hop at 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, in the Historic Frog Level District.

The fountain sculpture will be located at the corner of Commerce and Depot streets. Local artist and former Tuscola High School art teacher Bill Eleazer crafted the multi-piece bronze sculpture of three children playing in a pond over thirty years ago. The piece was showcased at the former Biltmore Square Mall in Asheville for many years until its closing for transition to outdoor outlet shopping. “Chasing Tadpoles,” was donated to the Town of Waynesville in early 2014.

Held from 4 to 9 p.m., the Frog Hop is a collaboration between the Frog Level Merchant’s Association, the Downtown Waynesville Association, Waynesville Public Art Commission and the Town of Waynesville. 

The Hop will include booths highlighting local artists, live music, food and children’s activities. Music will be provided by ‘Round the Fire at 4 and 6 p.m. and Travelers Club at 7:30 p.m. or 828.454.5664 or 828.246.0218.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
