Priceless antiquities. Ruthless grave robbers. International criminals who rob the cultural heritage of Italy, trading in goods stolen from the necropolises of Tarquinia to the posh auction houses of London, England, from the seedy underbelly of the black market to world-renown museums.Ripped from the case files of the Guardia di Finanza, stories like these will be told during “Treasures and Tales of Italy’s Guardia di Finanza Art Recovery Team,” a groundbreaking exhibition of priceless works of Etruscan and Greco-Roman art and craftsmanship, on display at The Grand Opera House from Oct. 3-Dec. 21.Each ancient ceramic, mosaic and statue in the exhibit tells a story, not just of the time of its creation, but also of its theft and recovery by the indefatigable agents of the Gruppo Tutela Patrimonio Archeologico, the art recovery team inside the Guardia di Finanza. The Guardia di Finanza, with headquarters in Rome, is Italy’s national law enforcement agency tasked with fighting financial crime and recovering stolen art and artifacts.

Over his remarkable seven-decade career, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) created thousands of drawings in graphite and watercolor, a body of work that he rarely exhibited. The drawings in this exhibition provide a fascinating glimpse into his creative process. They were created by Wyeth in preparation for four paintings—Faraway (1952), Corner of the Woods (1954), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), and Garret Room (1962). Each drawing is part of the process Wyeth used to work out his vision for his paintings. Many were sketched outdoors and reveal Wyeth’s immediate response to figures or objects in a composition. The exhibition includes 23 drawings and three paintings.

Tap any member of The Time Jumpers on the shoulder and the face that turns to greet you will be that of one who''s made major contributions to the richness and vigor of country music. The Time Jumpers are simply an assemblage of the very best Nashville musicians who wanted to spend some spare time drinking beer and jamming with their sonically gifted buddies. The notion of building a rabidly devoted following was the last thing on their minds. But that''s what happened. Learning how slow Monday evenings were for the Station Inn bluegrass club, the superpickers settled into their venue each week and pretty soon Monday nights were sounding a lot like Saturday nights while drawing commensurately lively crowds.The current edition of The Time Jumpers includes 11 members, each a master of his (and, in one case, her) instrument. Alphabetically—which is the only diplomatic way to present such a multitude of evenly matched talent—they are Brad Albin, Larry Franklin, Paul Franklin, Vince Gill, "Ranger Doug” Green, Andy Reiss, Dawn Sears, Kenny Sears, Joe Spivey, Jeff Taylor and Billy Thomas.www.thetimejumpers.com
