It's ABC Wednesday again, and the letter is E.
E is EASY, because I have lots of pictures to EXHIBIT
for Selma's Historic Pilgrimage that's coming up March 18-19. Pilgrimage EXHIBITS the town's EARLY heritage, so EXPECT to see ELEGANT homes, ENGAGING art, EXQUISITE flower arrangements and EXTREMELY old (antique) cars.
Above is the Brownstone Manor, one of six homes on tour, not including
Sturdivant Hall, where you see the dining room below.
In Heritage Village, very cool antique cars will be on display,
and this EVENT is free!
Alabama artists and photographers will compete in a juried art EXHIBITION sponsored by ArtsRevive. This year, the show will be at the renovated 1920's Carneal Building by the Alabama River. (Another free EVENT!)
If you enjoy memorabilia, the Burns Home has collections that range from the style of Antiques Roadshow to American Pickers. So, do YOU still have your Beatles lunchbox? How about the old family Victrola? This house does!
One of Selma's greatest regrets is the loss of the Hotel Albert, shown in the photo below. The hotel was torn down when it became too difficult to maintain, but oh what a tourist attraction it would be today! The photo is one of many taken by a photographer whose work will be on EXHIBIT at the Old Depot Museum.
During Pilgrimage, look for the Alabama Plein Air Artists! They will EXHIBIT their talents at various venues, painting the town so to speak!
Now, there are lots more perspectives on the Letter E over
at the ABC Wednesday Meme! Have fun!
