Portraits of Farmers by Raymond Goodman
Tim & Helga / Four Leaf Farm
This photography exhibit captures the faces of the clean food movement in our region. These portraits were all taken on farmland, with a veil of burlap between the farmers and the land they work. While these individuals have come to farming from a range of backgrounds and with varying intentions, these farmers have ultimately arrived at a nexus of geographical and philosophical common ground. Day after day, season after season, they set about their duties motivated by a love of labor and by the integrity of their mission.
This fifteen image exhibit extends onto the walls of Piedmont restaurant next door. Please consider taking in the rest of the show over a meal sometime.

Side stage activities & special guests include….
P O E T R Y F O X.
The beloved and eloquent poetry fox is returning to busk and will be here banging out poems on his manual typewriter for at least the first couple of hours. He may have to leave a lil early to attack a hen house (it is Friday night after all).
T E R R A R I U M S.
Victor Gordon will have a selection of terrariums for sale. His terrariums include mosses native to the wood and barren areas of the NC piedmont. These are made using reagent jars and found/repurposed glassware. With indirect light, the closed system should require very little to almost no watering. Victor is a some-times landscape designer and garden coach. He tends a mixed shrub and perennial yarden with his wife and two children in SW central Durham.
Dovetailing with the agricultural theme, we’ll have beer from a renowned plow to pint brewery at the back table (along with sodas).

Eno River Tapestries: New Work by Silvia Heyden
At eighty-four years young, Swiss-born tapestry weaver Silvia Heyden continues to produce stunning, modernist tapestries inspired by nature, music and her Bauhaus influenced education. The Eno River Tapestries represent a selection of new work inspired by Heyden’s hikes along the Eno River. Heyden’s weaving life and Eno River pieces are featured in the new documentary film, A Weaverly Path, by BCAC artist Kenny Dalsheimer. The DVD will be released in the very near future.
