I've known Rachel Haynie for several years. She's a popular arts writer here in South Carolina's Midlands area and has eagerly shared local visual arts and artists in her articles for many years. She has a keen eye for detail, an engaging literary style, and a rare ability to craft words that conjure up a visual experience. I was thrilled when she approached me for an article about The Canopy.

Of course the article was written back in January ... before The Canopy was actually accepted into Artfields, a 10-day arts festival being held in Lake City from April 19 - 28th. The article reflects the anticipation for the acceptance that did come!
In appreciation for Rachel's interest, I helped her set up a blog and work on her fledgling Facebook page. Rachel hopes to feature more talent from our area on her "Artful Columbia, SC" blog. I'm honored to be her first post! Anyone reading ... drop by Rachel's blog and leave an encouraging comment! Thanks!
