It started as an idea, sparked at a dinner party

conversation between Margo Bindhardt and Bob

Crozer. The two, along with Louise Humphrey

and the Thomasville Center for the Arts board,

were inspired by the rich history of Thomasville’s

sporting plantations and had a vision of bringing

great wildlife artists to the Red Hills region. Their

idea is what we now call the Plantation Wildlife

Arts Festival, and it represents what Thomasville

does best, both then and now: jumping onboard,

collaborating with one another and creating a

cultural and economic success that we celebrate

today, 21 years later.

PWAF is a week-long celebration that brings over

sixty wildlife artists to the Thomasville community...

and so much more. This year, meet some of the men

and women woven in the pages of this issue. Learn

painting techniques from Lyn St. Clair at the Women

of Wildlife Painting Workshop, get inspired for Fall by

Julia Reed, Ann & Sid Mashburn and James Farmer

at Out of the Woods Cocktails & Conversations and

create a seasonal arrangement with expert floral

designers Bryce Vann Brock and Kelly Revels from

The Vine. Expect to see woodland creatures in the

trees of West Jackson Street, all designed by local

fiber artists participating in the Wildlife Yarn Bomb.

Back by demand, JJ Grey & Mofro will be jamming on

Pebble Hill’s grounds after Afternoon in the Field.

There is truly something for everyone and it all

comes together with a giving spirit. All Plantation

Wildlife Arts Festival proceeds benefit Thomasville

Center for the Arts, which is dedicated to enriching

the creative life of the Red Hills Region through

visual, performing, literary and applied arts.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
