The Buchannan Center for the Arts are hosting a slew of events for February and March.

The Buchannan Center for the Arts is presenting “the Savannah Sipping Society” on Friday, February 8th; and Saturday, February 9th. The play is part of the Center’s 30th anniversary celebration. BCA Executive Director Kristyne Gilbert explains the plot of “the Savannah Sipping Society,” which is directed by Nicole Trego:

“The setting is in the South in Savannah, Georgia, and it’s a really funny comedy about four Southern women all needing to escape their day-to-day routines. They’re drawn together, they meet at this hot yoga class, and they just take their relationship from there.”

Tickets for the “the Savannah Sipping Society” are $12. Doors open at 6:30pm for refreshments, and the play starts at 7:30pm. Visit the Center’s website at BCAarts.org for more information.

The Buchanan Center for the Arts will also be hosting local fiber artist Donna Sproston on Wednesday February 13th at 10am for her “And So She Quilts” program. BCA Executive Director Kristyne Gilbert describes the convenience of having fiber art, like quilts, during the winter months, and goes on to describe what the event will entail:

“With all this cold weather we have experienced lately, what better time than to see functional objects that can be made to brighten your living space or to keep you warm? She is an incredible talent and she’ll have her work and she’ll be speaking to us.”

The event is free and open to the public and will include refreshments.
