Announcing the “Old Carolina” Photography Show

We are excited to announce a new show this year – the “Old Carolina” Photography Show – starting February 1st. All types of photography are acceptable as long at the photo portrays the theme of Old Carolina.

This show has come about through a true grassroots effort. It is the brain-child of Gallery Photographer Rodney Rock, who has worked to promote the show within the Stanly Arts Guild and the surrounding community.

But unlike most of our shows that have one or two big sponsors, this show is sponsored by a large number of people and business (over 20 at last count) – each donating a portion of the funds needed to host a show.

Of course the challenge for new shows is getting people to enter. Rodney’s vision of the show is to attract participants with generous prize money. The first, second and third place winners will take home $500, $300 and $200 respectively. There is also a Member’s Choice Award ($100) and four Honorable Mentions ($25).

So grab your camera and start hunting the winning shot that says “Old Carolina” to you. The show starts in February.

You can download a prospectus for the show that explains the all the rules for entry by visiting our show webpage here.

Holiday Craft Show

Our Holiday Craft Show is the Best Yet!

The “From Our Hands” holiday Craft Show is now open at Falling Rivers Gallery. Over 20 crafters have set up booths in the gallery show space offering holiday decor, Christmas ornaments, unique gifts and more.

Check out our holiday decor – hand-painted ornaments, tree skirts, sea shell Christmas trees, Santa under glass, and other creative ideas.

Want to stay warm this winter? Or add some style to your wardrobe? Our crafters have handmade hats, scarves, handbags and other apparel that you will love.

If you have someone that is hard to shop for, we have some unique gifts that they will enjoy. How about a straw basket? Or a wood-turned hummingbird house? We also have music boxes and kaleidoscopes, as well as soaps, lotions, wooden bowls, and bird feeders.

So don’t wait until the last minute and the shelves are bare – many items are one-of-a-kind. Come early for the best selection and plan to spend time browsing just to see what you might find.
