Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival

Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival
Thomasville, Georgia
November 16 -18, 2012

 Thomasville, Ga. was lovely!  The festival staff was truly extraordinary and charming. The opening gala was held amidst the art on the three lavishly and tastefully decorated floors of the Thomasville Center for the Arts.   An astounding array of lush greenery, lighting, food, spirits, and music set the tone.  The magic continued through the next night at Pebble Hill Plantation which was located just outside of town.  A tour of the home and the stunning art gallery on the second floor turned into a dinner party with oysters and live bluegrass music in the large courtyard between the absolutely exquisite plantation house and the charming carriage house.  The temperature was perfect. Under the massive moss draped oaks and huge balls of light that seemed to magically hang from the sky, new friendships began.  Everyone in attendance was equally in awe of the magic of the event.   It seemed as though every Thomasville resident was focused on supporting their treasured arts festival and were delighted to welcome you to town.  The artists were treated like family. It was truly a “FIVE STAR” extravaganza.
Amidst the beauty and charm, artists showed their art for two and a half days to an eager and gracious audience.  It was heavenly.  Below is just a tiny bit of what I was able to capture.  My pictures truly do not do the affair justice.

Why Thomasville, Ga?

It all began in the great cities of America's northeast and midwest. During the winters in the late 1870's,  zero temperatures and snow prompted the powerful and prominent families to yearn for the warmth of the south.  The Vanderbilts and the Goodrichs were two such families.  Because the railroad line ended in Thomasville, two large posh hotels were built to accommodate the new tourists.  Pastimes included fancy dress balls and extravagant shopping.  Glen Arvin Pleasure Park opened on the outskirts of town to show off the beautiful natural setting and the abounding wildlife.  Golf, tennis, cycling, and horse related activies became popular.  Bird hunting developed into a precise science with an intricate social etiquette.  Picnicking developed into an elaborate social occasion.  Some loved it so much that they bought the old and financially suffering cotton plantations. The nineteenth century agricultural estates became the shooting plantations of the twentieth century.  Magnificent winter residences were built. It was in this rich and celebrated backdrop that art came to Thomasville.  Robert P. Crozer (1954-2007) and Margo Bindhardt (1942-2011) are credited with creating PWAF to continue a long and cherished artistic tradition in Thomasville.
