Singer-songwriter/actor Ben Dickey is scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. May 17 at The Forge Bar and Grill in Ben Wheeler. Dickey made his acting debut in Blaze, Ethan Hawke’s biopic about doomed Texas singer-songwriter Blaze Foley last year. That led to more acting roles on the horizon.
As guests enter Dolli’s Diner on Pecan Street in downtown Nacogdoches, they are greeted by a stunning display of large, colorful, expressive portraits along a brick wall. Created by artist JD Cole, the paintings are Nacogdoches people in scenes that reflect their lives in Texas’ oldest city.
