Through May 28 at Historic Wynnewood in Castalian Springs, visitors can see hand-stitched quilts on display, including one quilt that will be laid out on the “Jesse James” bed for viewing. The quilt exhibit is included in the price of admission to tour Wynnewood, or you can just view the quilts without the tour for $5. Another option is to attend the “If These Logs Could Talk” quilt lecture, presented by Bledsoe’s Lick Historical Association on May 21 as part of their Third Sunday series of speakers on historic topics. At 2pm Cathy Lampman will demonstrate quilt restoration and talk about the quilts that are on display as part of the exhibit. The Third Sunday program fee is included with the regular cost of admission, which also includes a tour of Historic Wynnewood. The cost for the presentation only is $5. Bring a lawn chair or other seating for the program. For more information, visit historicwynnewood.org.

The Hendersonville Performing Arts Company is presenting Everybody Loves Opal, May 19 through June 4. The play revolves around Opal Kronkie, a middle-aged recluse, who lives in a tumbledown mansion at the edge of the municipal dump where she collects things, toted home in her little red wagon. Into the eternal optimist’s world enters Gloria, Bradford and Solomon, three purveyors of bogus perfume on the run who devise a plan to insure – then kill – Opal for the money. Attempt after attempt fail, and through it all, Opal radiates kindness, affection and, strangely enough, gratitude. Tickets are available at the Hendersonville Performing Arts Company box office, online at hpactn.com, or by calling 615.826.6037.
