Faulkner to Show Works
The Essay choice for ‘Best Bet’ this
month is an art exhibit by Frank
Faulkner. Faulkner, who is on the NCSA
faculty, will show his works in a one-man
show at the Gallery of Contemporary Art
in Old Salem.
The show will include 25 or 30 paintings
in acrylic and some 20 pencil drawings.
The show will open Friday, March 8, with
a reception from 7-9 p.m. The reception is
open to the public. The show will continue
through the month of March.
Faulkner, who is 27 years old, got his
Masters and Bacculaurate degrees from
the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, where he was a member of
Phi Beta Kappa honorary fraternity. He
taught at Meredith College in Raleigh
and was Curator for the Gallery of
Contempor^ Art in Winston-S^em
before coming to NCSA. He is currently
on the Board of Directors of the gallery
and teaches art history here at NCSA. He
also reviews art for the Winston-Salem
Journal and the Twin City Sentinel.
Because we believe that students
should be e^^sed to what their teachers
are doing in their arts, and because
Frank Faulkner is a well-known
established North Carolina artist, the
Essay chooses this exhibit as ‘Best Bet’,
for the month of March. -

March is the kite flying month.
Kite flying is a great way to relax after long tense hours
of practice, dance class, etc. In fact, I can think of few
better things to do on Sunday (if Sunday is ever free) than
to chuck a diamond into the wind and watch it fly.
Kites are believed to have originated in Asia where kite
flying has been a favorite pastime since time immemorial.
The first scientific use of the kite took place in 1749 in
Glasgow, Scotland, when Alexander Wilson and Thomas
Melville used kites to record the temperature of clouds.
It was three years later, in 1752, that Benjamin Franklin
did his famous kite experiment in which he proved that
lightning was electricity.
Kites were used in other meteorological experiments
and weather forecasting by the U.S. Weather Bureau until
1931 when they were replaced by balloons.
Alexander Graham Bell lifted a man to a height of 186
feet in a tetrahedral kite towed behind a small steamer.
The greatest height ever attained by a kite is 35,530 feet.
The record was set by a group of schoolboys near Portage,
Ind. with a train of 19 kites. The flight took seven hours and
was calculated by telescopic traingulation.
Kites can be purchased locally at a variety of prices.
Crown drugs has the usual assortment of 15 to 49-cent two-
stickers with bizzare drawings. These kites work well but
usually need a tail despite what the instructions say.
(Crown also has box kites which require more wind than
two-stickers and the latest thing in (yecch) inflatable
Mickey’s has the same assortment with the addition of
some pop art plastic kites (Jonathan Livingston Seagull,
All of these except the inflatables are cheap and work
well if you have a little skill.
If you want something foolproof, you can get a Gayla.
plastic bird kite for a dollar at King’s. This is the kite
which was used to set the record for the highest flight. It
will fly in a very light breeze, and all you have to do is hook
up the string, let out a few feet and run into the wind. If a
Gayla kite won’t fly, it’s not a good day for kite flying.
In addition to a kite, you also need string. Kite string can
be bought wherever kites are sold, but don’t use that ten-
cent stuff because it breaks. The best kite strings, I know
of are the high flyer plastic coated and the Gayla and the
Gayla cable cord. Both work well, but the plastic coated is
more prone to giving you string burns.
The best places around campus for kite flying are the
field between Sanford and Moore and the big field at
Washington Park. The parking lot and field by the college
dorms is also good, but you have to be careful of the wire
on those dumb lights.
Remember, there are only two ways to become air
borne, and even with youth fare, airplanes are awfully
expensive for passing a Sunday afternoon. Happy landing!
