Folk art weekend

I'm headed back to NC for the weekend for an event I've been wanting to attend for years now: the Fearrington Folk Art Show. My mom's a regular there, but I've always lived too far away to attend easily... until now! We're going to the collector's preview tonight, which will feature a panel discussion on the storytelling power of art... right up my alley. Think of me this weekend while I lovingly gaze at folk art, pretending I have both the money to start building a real collection and a house suitable for displaying one. Sigh... I kid. It's going to be great. Some day, some day!

The Fearrington Barn: I think we all know where I would've had a reception had I gotten married at home in the Triangle instead of the Outer Banks...

 My mom chatting with artist Danny Doughty at last year's show (the weird morphing happening here between my mom's black coat and her friend Mary's black pants makes me laugh). She owns three of Danny's pieces, which you can see in the background.

Plenty of inspiration in the Village for my fantasy beach house/farmhouse!

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

  1. Ooh lala! I love Fearrington! Have fun! I didn't know you were from the triangle! I am from Sanford (which is right outside of Raleigh)


C'mon, make my day...
