Last week we attended the annual Cracked Pots art show at McMenamins Edgefield. For those of you who are not from 'round here, the McMenamin brother are brewers, wine makers and distillers. They purchase broken down, but historic, old properties and renovate them. The result is some of the most unique brewpub destinations you could imagine. Their "rescues" include old public schools, hotels, and theaters. This particular location is called Edgefield and was originally the county poor farm and later a nursing home. You can learn more about it by visiting here.here.
I apologize for the quality of the photos. It was overcast and near dusk when most were taken.
It was too dark and too many people to get permission from the artists to take photos but I couldn't resist stealing just this one. The garden art ran the gamut from wind chimes made from salvaged keys and bottle caps, mosaic hubcaps, glass birdbaths to jewelry. The15 foot fire-breathing dragon wasn't there this year but this giant seahorse made up for it!
