A festive celebration at the Rickman Store

The T.M. Rickman Store in Cowee will host a full day of arts events on Dec. 9 with crafters and artisans who will display their work, including exhibits from artist in residence Kathrine Cays and photographer Ralph Preston.

The Nikwasi Dulcimer Players will perform Christmas tunes at 3 p.m., and then at 6 p.m. playwright Gary Carden will present “The Liar’s Bench,” a taste of an Appalachian Christmas with mandolin player Eric Young, Cherokee storyteller Lloyd Ameach, and poet Dave Waldrop.

Fresh-cut Christmas trees and hand-made wreaths will be available for a donation to the store.

Admission is free, but seating for The Liar’s Bench is limited.
