It started as an idea… inspired by the rich history of Thomasville’s sporting plantations, Bob Crozer, Margo Bindhardt, Louise Humphrey and members of the Thomasville Center for the Arts board had a vision of bringing outstanding wildlife artists to the Red Hills region. This vision was brought to life as the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival, which is now entering its 24th year as a signature event in our community.
The Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival celebrates the sporting life of the Red Hills Region through the eyes of nationally-renowned wildlife artists. The 2019 Festival highlights include: Afternoon In the Field, a concert at Pebble Hill Plantation with Bishop Gunn; the Red Hills Rover Rally, a guided off-road ride through some of Thomasville’s most iconic private hunting plantations; a black-tie Preview Party and the Fine Art Show itself, showcasing painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelers, and artisans; as well as floral and visual art workshops, hands-on youth art activities, conservation conversations, and of course, a few fun parties along the way.
All Festival proceeds will benefit Thomasville Center for the Arts and its ongoing commitment to serve as a catalyst for artistic expression, arts education, and creative economy in Thomasville, Georgia.
