Black Mountain Old Depot Art by the Tracks

Art By The Tracks

2019 Art by the Tracks
Saturday, October 26th,
10:00am-5:00pm.
Sutton Ave., Black Mountain, NC

Please join us for the 22nd year of Old Depot’s Art Show in downtown Black Mountain, NC on Sutton. Ave this year on Saturday, October 26th, 2019.

Each year the Old Depot sponsors two juried art shows, one in the spring and one in the fall. Our Spring Art Show is always the first Saturday in June, and our Fall Art Show is the last Saturday in October, in the heart of leaf season. We highlight extraordinary art and craft from throughout the region in this renowned juried art show.

From the 1930’s to the mid 1950’s the town was home for Black Mountain College, which still claims alumni of worldwide renown in the arts. More and more, the town is becoming a center for arts and crafts, antiques and furniture, which attracts tourists from throughout the nation for its unique offerings.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains just 15 miles east of Asheville, Black Mountain has long been a rich and varied arts and crafts community.

The Old Depot Association uses the money earned from booth fees for this show towards heritage art grants for schools within the Swannanoa Valley! Each year we contract a local school kid to do the poster art. The 2019 poster art was done by Willow Garrison of Art Space School.

Autumn With Topsail Festival 2019

Mushpa + Mensa is very excited to be a part Autumn with Topsail this year. Come down and see us and the plethora of other fabulous artisans, music and food! More 411 on the event below.

Started in 1988, The Autumn With Topsail Festival is held on the grounds of the Historical Society of Topsail Island and the Assembly Building which houses the Missiles & More Museum in Topsail Beach, NC.  The festival features a juried Artists’ and Crafts Court with over 100 regional artists displaying and selling their work. Enjoy exciting live musical entertainment, a variety of amazing food with beer and wine, games and rides for children, and much more!

Housed inside this historic Assembly Building is the Missiles and More museum. The Missiles and More Museum came to life when a group of citizens were concerned for the future of the historical Assembly Building. The building was constructed in 1946 and was used by the government to assemble missiles for a secret missile operation being conducted on Topsail Island. So the citizens began to pursue their goal to preserve the building and after several years of research, Feasibility and studies and the meeting with the state and local representatives the building was purchased. Thus it was decided that the Assembly Building would be the perfect place to have the Missiles and More museum. The late Betty Polzer’s dream was to promote the history of Topsail Island. Through hard work and dedication, her dream was finally realized and the Missiles and more Museum opened for all to enjoy in 1995.

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival

The Experience of Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival

Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival was inspired by friendship, history, experience and the desire to create an authentic music festival. Three years ago, Musician and Franklin, TN resident Kevin Griffin was on a September morning run through The Park at Harlinsdale, a century-old horse farm recently purchased by the City of Franklin. Kevin was so taken by the rolling hills, natural amphitheaters, and breathtaking vistas of the 230-acre farm, he envisioned it as a natural fit for a music festival venue. Considering Franklin’s music and cultural history, Kevin wanted the community to further appreciate combining this with the beauty and rustic quality of Middle Tennessee in the fall, and with the blessing of the City, began to dream up a music festival to do it justice.

Partnered with lifelong buddies W. Brandt Wood and Michael Whelan, the trio aspired to highlight the diversity and community spirit of the New Orleans Jazz Fest, tailoring the best elements to Franklin– a richly historic town just 20 minutes south of Nashville. Like Jazz Fest, Pilgrimage takes place during the day, and offers a diverse yet renowned lineup of rock and roll, alt-country, bluegrass, jazz, indie, gospel and more.

The festival has grown in its three years to double down on the music programming, with six stages and heralded lineups year after year, and has expanded its cultural focus by showcasing hundreds of local artisans, restaurants, food trucks and makers that give context and authenticity to the Pilgrimage experience.

Pilgrimage has always presented itself as family friendly which means kids are welcomed and encouraged to experience festival culture at young age. Specifically, at the Lil’ Pilgrims Area with Grammy award winning producer, Ralph Covert, kids experience numerous activities, renowned artists, and are presented musical talent at a high level that has underscored a commitment to the “all ages” experience.

Each year Pilgrimage develops new elements to continue to create a music festival with the mission to grow and evolve each year. In 2017 Pilgrimage introduced Farm to Turn-Table, a food truck park with plenty of shade, seating, food trucks and activities that made it an event in itself. In 2017 Pilgrimage also introduced the Americana Music Triangle Experience which was a collection of municipalities from the rich music heritage of the South in one tent to participate for the first time, collectively in sharing this rich heritage. Thousands of people got to see in one place, where they might want to visit these towns, small and large, to keep this history alive.

When performances wrap and the lights come back on, guests can conveniently head back into the heart of downtown Franklin, within walking distance from the Park at Harlinsdale, to imbibe the best of the town’s bars and restaurants, retail shops, and great weekend lineup of nighttime shows and events.
