The Gilreath Family

Family Full Circle

Ashley Gilreath (2012 Resident Artist) had the opportunity to show her work in her grandfather's hometown at The Art of Food Exhibition. This is most fitting as Ashley's body of work consist of family history past down through the grow and heritage of food depicted in her metalsmithing.  Member of her family were in attendance due to the Gilreath family reunion that same weekend.
