Take a walk through the BRAHM galleries with Dianna Cameron, Curator of Exhibitions & Collections Director and get a behind-the-scenes, detailed look into "Sallie Middleton: A Life in the Forest," on loan from the Asheville Art Museum and courtesy of Sallie Middleton Parker and Mikell Middleton Howington. Before and after the tour, guests are invited to converse and pose questions while enjoying complimentary Hatchet Coffee and baked goods.

Middleton has long been considered one of the most gifted painters of plants and animals. All works in this exhibition are watercolors by Middleton from circa 1970-1990. She often made forays into the woods to gather plant materials for her paintings. She spent most of her life in Asheville or in Charleston, SC. Aside from a few years living in Biltmore Forest, Middleton spent the last rest of her life living in the same home she had grown up in, in the forests of Chunn’s Cove.

This event is free for museum members and $5 for non-members.
