Farm to Table: American Silver in Asheville

Farm to Table: American Silver highlights different but inter-connected uses of American silver - agricultural awards and table service - as they progressed over the last 150 years. Farm to Table and associated programs will enable visitors to experience the farms and tables of the region as they reflect the stylistic changes of each era. Farm to Table brings new meaning to the "art of eating," treating audiences to an intimate experience of handmade American silver objects celebrating our food and farms and appearing on our tables through modern times. The exhibition will feature a variety of forms and objects representative of agricultural presentation silver and fine table settings, including silverware, hollowware and serving pieces. For example, the agricultural silver component will feature medals, trophies and engraved hollowware. Silverware for the table will span from Francis I to contemporary designs. Table settings and serving pieces will exemplify the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Craft styles.
