Art @ the Center: "Useful Work," The Legacy of Hickory Nut Gap Farm

When: Fri., May 30, 5:30 p.m. 2014

This summer, CSAS features “Useful Work,” photographs from Sherrill’s Inn and Hickory Nut Gap Farm by photographer Ken Abbott. The opening reception features the photographs, food from the farm, “Mountain Voices” oral histories, and live music from farm family members and friends. The Fairview, NC farm and inn were purchased in 1916 by Jim and Elizabeth McClure, a newlywed couple. In addition to helping found the Farmers Federation, five generations of family have managed and worked the farm, as well as nearby Flying Cloud Farm, and run a camp during the summer.

Price: Free and open to the public
