Hester will return to the High Country for his artist reception at Mountain Blue Gallery in Banner Elk at 6 p.m. on April 13.

A teacher at Myers Park High School in Charlotte for more than two decades, Hester is nearing retirement, which means he has more time for his two passions: art and fly fishing. His work combines those two loves and has been featured in The Drake Magazine and Eastern Fly Fishing Magazine.
