Asheville Art Museum :

Farm to Table: American Silver

HANK – elegant ewer with inscription

May 31 – October 5, 2014

Farm to Table: American Silver highlights different but inter-connected uses of American silver – agricultural awards and table service – as they progressed over the last 150 years. Farm to Table and associated programs will enable visitors to experience the farms and tables of the region as they reflect the stylistic changes of each era. Farm to Table brings new meaning to the “art of eating,” treating audiences to an intimate experience of handmade American silver objects celebrating our food and farms and appearing on our tables through modern times.

The exhibition will feature a variety of forms and objects representative of agricultural presentation silver and fine table settings, including silverware, hollowware and serving pieces. For example, the agricultural silver component will feature medals, trophies and engraved hollowware. Silverware for the table will span from Francis I to contemporary designs. Table settings and serving pieces will exemplify the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Craft styles.

Public Programs

The Museum has planned a series of public programs that contribute to the interpretation of the Farm to Table: American Silver exhibition. Educational programs will include a series of four cooking classes led by celebrated local chefs; a Dinner & A Movie event featuring a farm-to-table style dinner; engaging lectures by exhibition curators and silver collectors; and a special opening event aimed at attracting diverse audiences to the Museum. Check back for specific programming dates.
