Fish and an Ish! Photo Exhibit and Down East Fish Fry

September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Fish slider

Please join us at the Love House & Hutchins Forum for the opening reception of our fall art exhibit, “An Eye For Mullet,” co-sponsored by UNC Press and the Department of American Studies. These photographs, taken in a North Carolina mullet camp by Charles A. Farrell in 1938, were collected and curated by historian David S. Cecelski for an annotated photo essay that appears in the forthcoming 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 the black-and-white images reveal “the changing nature of our relationship to the ocean and seashore.” You can listen to voices and stories from the Southern Oral History Program‘s “Coastal Carolina” series here.

Saltbox logoTo celebrate the issue’s release, we have invited Ricky Moore of Durham’s Saltbox Seafood Joint to serve up some of his signature sustainable seafood from the Carolina coast. We’ll also enjoy live music on the porch by Wayne Martin & Friends. The reception is free and open to the public, and $20 gets you “Fish and an Ish”: a plate of Ricky’s delicious seafood plus the Fall 2014 issue of Southern Cultures. We regret to inform you that this event is sold out!
