Heirloom Silver and Native Landscape Fourth Friday Gallery Walk

Friday, March 24  from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The Burgwin-Wright House Museum presents, “Heirloom Silver”, a pop-up exhibit showcasing silver pieces that belonged to three former owners of the Burgwin-Wright House.

 “Native Landscape” brings together drawings, monotypes and mixed media works that convey the landscapes of the region, both literally and figuratively. Toll’s charcoal and pastel drawings were produced on site in the forests of Bald Head Island. The mixed media pieces rely on topographical photographs of the coast or are a poetic reflection of the artist’s inner landscape.

An Associate Professor of Studio Art at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Toll is co-founder of Acme Art Studio and the No Boundaries International Art Colony. Toll’s work will hang at the Burgwin-Wright House through April 17.

“Heirloom Silver” will be on display only for Fourth Friday. Included in the exhibit are three items made of silver owned by John Burgwin, who built the house in 1770-1771: a 1720 punch ladle, a 1774 candle snuffer and a George III tea caddy.  Representing the Wright family is a three-piece coin silver tea service made in 1825 and presented as a wedding gift to Thomas and Mary Allan Wright.

Stop in every month to see a display of one-of-a-kind 18th and 19th century objects from the Burgwin-Wright House Collection.
