Art at the Jam: FCAC at Wendell Falls’ Farmhouse Jam
By Donna Campbell Smith, Franklin County Arts Council
Wendell Falls Community, a member of Quilt Trails of the Tar River, has invited the Franklin County Arts Council (FCAC) members to be art vendors during their regular Farmhouse Jam on June 16, 2016. Vendors are invited to sign up for the “Art at the Jam” to display and sell all day.
The new community of Wendell Falls is an important gateway bridging the rich agrarian heritage of the Town of Wendell and the growing prosperity of the Research Triangle. To illustrate this connection, their quilt block is a series of triangles in the form of a pinwheel. It is the central focus of the community identity; and as it is also a familiar element found in the art of quilting, they have chosen to represent it for their quilt block design.
The quilt block is displayed on the community Tobacco Barn, near where the Art at the Jam event will be held. The Jam starts at 5:30pm and ends at 8:30pm.
Artists will set up at 4pm and break down at 8pm. Vendor fees are $20 for FCAC members, $50 for non-members which includes membership. The artist space will be 10’x5’.
FCAC Members must register by May 15, 2016. If there are any vendor spaces left at that point, they will be opened up to members of any other NC Arts Council from May 15-30, 2016.
The music jam is at the Wendell Falls lakeside pavilion just down from the Farmhouse. Spaces will be covered. Bring your own sets ups – table, chair, etc. No tents needed. Rain or shine.
For more information or to register call 919.497.6910 or email.
