MCAF Fall Fete 2019


“Wood and Weavings”

Fall Fete will take place at Oak Hall, Hedgerow Farm 4721 Price Mill Road Bishop 30621.

$35 per person includes lunch and a contribution towards restoration of Cherry Grove Schoolhouse.

A Note from Dale,

Our fall fete, Wood and Weaving, brings together artists Abraham Tesser and Shirley Chambliss for personal conversation and to see their work. Celebrate the best of autumn harvest traditions, meet with your friends and neighbors in the woodland setting of Oak Hall, at Hedgerow Farm. Enjoy the cooler weather, the woodland setting and acclaimed regional food all while helping to save and restore Cherry Grove Schoolhouse, a charming and important historic Georgia structure in rural Wilkes County that was a focus for a thriving African-American community. We've also curated a few of our favorite and regional art forms for exhibit and sale. By all means stay and stroll across hundreds of acres of pasture and woodland and see flocks of sheep and rare breed animals.
