Harpist plays artist reception

art harpistHarpist Betina Morgan will play the artist reception for the exhibition “Appalachia,” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 7, at Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery 86 in Waynesville. The reception is free and open to the public.


Betina began performing on the harp at the age of 24. She found a wonderful blend of voice and strings, and so began her lifelong love of the folk harp as an instrument of accompaniment to her repertoire of many well-loved songs. After years of entertaining audiences on both the East and West coasts, Betina relocated to Western North Carolina. “Appalachia” celebrates the many forms and techniques of art in the Appalachian region of North Carolina. The exhibition will run through Saturday, June 29.

The council is supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
