Description

Join us for supper and explore contemporary Southern culture through art and food.

This season, our exhibitions and programs examine various aspects of Southern identity and culture. What makes Southern culture unique, and how do we reconcile our past with the present? Join us for a family-style meal inside the gallery where you can celebrate the intricacies of the Southern experience with new friends. Tickets include dinner and two drinks.

Gallery One exhibition, Dirty South, explores the ways that queer communities, people of color and immigrants to the south have enriched and shifted the landscape of Southern art and culture. Featuring Jasmine Best, Laura Little, Aaron McIntosh + Renzo Ortega.

Gallery Two exhibition, Heirloom, celebrates the ways that artists have introduced new aesthetics and materials to traditional fiber arts. Featuring Coulter Fussell and Antonia Perez.
