Foxfire: Weaving A Visual History

Categorized as: Art & Galleries
Event tags: historic


Foxfire was born on Mary Hambidge’s kitchen table 50 years ago. The Hambidge Center is proud to present an exhibition of folk art and fine craft that embodies the spirit of the Foxfire tradition. Grounded in community oral history and experiential education, Foxfire was almost revolutionary in its time. The concept spread throughout the country as a method of preserving the stories and skills of vanishing cultures; and as an enduring symbol of resourcefulness, sustainability and simple living. This exhibition features a special collection of historical and contemporary objects from the local community and around the region made by craftspeople, Hambidge Fellows, and folk artists.
