Photography exhibit

The Perimeter Gallery of the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St., will feature the art photography of Ray Clemmer for July.

A native of Kings Mountain, N.C., Clemmer uses digital and film photography, and combinations of the two, to create his own style of dramatic art. The works featured in the current exhibit are photographs taken at Crowders Mountain in Gaston County, where Clemmer enjoys hiking and taking pictures.

To see a sample of Clemmer's works online, visit For information about the exhibit, call the Arts Council of York County, 803-328-2787.


If you've ever had the acting bug, but maybe didn't “act” on it, now's your opportunity.

Rock Hill Community Theatre will hold auditions July 13-14 for the annual Down Home Play Festival performances Aug. 14-17.

The Down Home Play Festival is a wonderful opportunity to see six one-act plays by local and regional playwrights. Usually at least one play is by a Rock Hill writer. The plays are directed by Winthrop University theater students led by Lecturer in Theatre Russell Luke.

Auditions for male and female actors, ages 14 and older, are 5-7 p.m. July 13 and 7-9 p.m. July 14 at 103 Johnson Hall, Winthrop University. Actors may have a prepared piece or read from scenes provided and do not need an appointment. Previous experience is not required.
