Artsville presents: room for dessert
After a three-year hiatus, Artsville is back with a brand new event: Room For Dessert.
This Valentine's Day we're teaming up with one of Hartsville's best up and coming local businesses, Griggs Circle Bakery. Brad Carr, owner and head baker, is crafting two delicious desserts exclusively for this event: Opera Cake and Petits Fours.
Guests will enjoy a gourmet dessert and cup of coffee, and may decide to pair their treats with a glass of wine for an additional charge. Then they will sit back and enjoy the songs, stories and guitar wizardry of Artsville alum Jacob Johnson. Local artists will help decorate the venue with their handmade creations, and guests may purchase these at the end of the event.
Join us as we usher in a new season of Artsville!

Part virtuoso and part storyteller, you might say that Jacob Johnson does with a guitar what Gene Kelly did with dance. Although his songwriting has won awards and his guitar-playing has put him on stage with Tommy Emmanuel and Phil Keaggy, his ability as an entertainer is what has won fans throughout the southeast. He refers to himself as "a ham that just wants to be on stage" but he’s much more than that. Jacob is an amazingly talented guitarist and songwriter which, combined with a bit of a personality, makes for a wildly impressive stage performance.
