Hambidge Art Auction: May 31
Music and Entertainment curated by Dust-to-Digital
Eighty years ago, Mary Hambidge, a professional whistler, costume designer and weaver, moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia to establish a sustainable farm and artist enclave. Since her death in 1973, the Center has stayed true to her legacy by offering a formal and competitive residency program for those interested in the arts, sciences and sustainability. Eight residents at a time come from across the U.S. and the world to the pristine 600-acre property in order to explore, develop, innovate, collaborate and create lasting works of the highest caliber. Residents include visual artists, performance artists, writers, poets, playwrights, scientists, ceramicists, musicians, dancers, choreographers, chefs and architects.
The Hambidge Art Auction + Performance Gala is the Hambidge Center’s biggest annual fundraiser, offering for bid the work of over 200 exceptional artists, as well as live music, theatrical performances, and art installations. This year’s event will include a Dust-to-Digital Listening Lounge, as well as live musical performances by the label’s artists and friends. Details and tickets can be found at www.hambidgeauction.org
