More Info

The documentary film screening will be accompanying by a discussion with film director, Hal Jacobs; Hambidge Center Executive Director, Jamie Badoud; Hambidge Fellow, Donna Mintz; and Director of the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University, Rosemary Magee.

She may be one of the most remarkable southern women you've never heard of.

Born and raised in a prominent south Georgia family, Mary Crovatt Hambidge became a bohemian weaver in New York in the 1920s, then moved to the north Georgia mountains in the 1930s to start a weaving enterprise with local spinners and weavers. Over the next 20 years, she would receive international honors and be invited to show her work at the Smithsonian and the Museum of Modern Art. In the last decade of her life, she focused more on developing a community for artists and craftspeople, which led to the creation of the Hambidge Center, a renowned artist's retreat, in 1973.

Admission is $5 for members and $10 for general public.
