5 Reasons to Eat Your Heart Out at Farm to Gallery on July 30!

You’re invited to our first-ever Farm to Gallery Makers Dinner! This will be a very unique dining experience nestled inside the State Museum’s Lipscomb Gallery. Here are 5 reasons why you don’t want to miss it.

1. Dine Inside the State Museum’s Art Gallery


You’ll get to have dinner on handmade tables inside our latest art exhibit, Carolina Makers. The exhibit celebrates South Carolina and the local makers and artisans from our state who are producing handmade everyday objects for people across the globe.

2. Fresh, local food.

A handful of the makers featured in Carolina Makers will be at the dinner discussing their work, including Quintin Middleton (culinary knives from St. Stephen), Jaryd Walley (furniture from Greenville) and Leigh Magar (textiles from John’s Island).

5. Handcrafted, Made-in-South-Carolina Swag

Handcrafted Plate

A handmade plate! What other dinner allows you to literally take home your plate? Each guest will take home their handcrafted dinner plate made by a South Carolina potter. One of the featured potters even added a special note to his work: each plate has ‘Guy’ written on the reverse to honor South Carolina artist and former State Museum Commission Chair, Guy Lipscomb.

We hope you will join us for this one-of-kind evening of art, food, music and fun. Farm to Gallery will be held at the State Museum on Thurs., July 30 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. Tickets for this one-of-kind event are limited, so get yours fast!
