Evening of Art and Music and Vintage Whiskey Auction Dec 9, 7-9 pm
Narrow Ridge invites you to join us on Friday, December 9 from 7 to 9 pm for an evening of fine art and music with wine and cheese and local craft beers. This fundraising event will offer art connoisseurs and other conscientious consumers the opportunity to take home a special one-of-a-kind treasure just in time for the holidays. The works of local and other renowned artists and craftspersons will be sold in both live and silent auctions. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase works of art outside of the silent and live auctions from artists who will contribute a portion of their sales to benefit the work of Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center. Artists interested in selling their artwork at this event should contact Narrow Ridge at the phone number or email address below.
In addition to the auction of works of art, we will be auctioning a rare bottle of vintage O.F.C. bourbon whiskey donated to Narrow Ridge by Buffalo Trace Distillery who value the bottle at upwards of $10,000.
Musical entertainment will be provided by East Tennessee's own Emancipators who specialize in original and cover tunes that promote peace, joy, love, social and Earth justice. Their music ranges from the political to the personal, traditional to contemporary, with a common concern for building the beloved community through music.
Admission is free, and the proceeds from the sale of auction items and beverages will go to benefit Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center. Hope to see you there.

“The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time:
the shift from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization.”
Narrow Ridge has a long history of creating worthwhile initiatives that embody its cornerstone values--Sustainability, Community, Spirituality. Examples include protecting 600 acres of rural land, providing a place for spiritual retreat and renewal for visitors and residents alike, establishing the state's first approved natural burial grounds, and building community both among those who come to Narrow Ridge because they believe in its mission as well as with local folk on the relatively remote, north side of Clinch Mountain in Grainger County.
