Fish and an Ish

Join us at the Love House and Hutchins Forum for the opening reception of our fall art exhibit, “An Eye For Mullet.” These photographs, taken in a North Carolina mullet camp by Charles A. Farrell during the 1930s, were collected and curated by historian David S. Cecelski for an annotated photo essay that appears in the forthcoming Fall 2014 issue of Southern Cultures. “Our world today is so different than that of only a century ago,” writes Cecelski, “that few people can recognize even the most basic aspects of daily life and labor as seen in [these] photographs.” Yet they reveal “the changing nature of our relationship to the ocean and seashore.” To celebrate the issue’s release, we have invited Ricky Moore of Durham’s Saltbox Seafood Joint to serve up some of his signature seasonal sustainable seafood from the Carolina coast. We’ll also enjoy coastal music by Wayne Martin & friends. The reception is free and open to the public, but we can’t afford to give away products this good! $20 gets you “Fish and an Ish”: a plate of Ricky’s delicious seafood plus the Fall 2014 issue of Southern Cultures.
