The Toe River Arts Council’s Annual Student Showcase began last week at their Burnsville Gallery, located at 102 W. Main Street. It features work from students all across Yancey County from first through 12th grade. This annual event is one of this area's biggest highlights of this on again/off again winter season. An open house is planned for closing day, Saturday, from 1 to 4:30pm. Stop in for a cookie and a smile. For more information, call the Burnsville Gallery at 828.682-7215.
