If you read this blog religiously, like you should, you would have seen an early post about the charming hamlet of Bynum. The now mostly residential former mill town sits along the banks of the Haw River and is a charming reminder of Chatham County’s industrial past. Bynum is now known for its quirky art scene and local music and storytelling. Below is a description provided by bephilarthropy.
Bynum Bridge Fest is one of those amazing art events and is described as a one-day Art Market held on the pedestrian bridge overlooking the Haw River in Bynum NC. Applauded for the diversity and affordability of work, a great atmosphere and a beautiful venue, the Bynum Bridge Fest has become the largest Art Festival in Chatham county featuring 49 artists!
Sponsored by the Small Museum of Folk Art and Jerry’s Artarama, the festival will include children’s craft by Clapping Hands Farm, a poetry open mic, youth ukulele orchestra, food vendors, and much more….once again to raise money for a good cause. The range of art work from local artists is incredible and there is truly something for every person and every taste including: – Encaustics – Folk Art – Jewelry – Metal Sculpture – Photography – Pottery – Textiles – Wood working – and many more…
With Jerry’s Artarama returning as a sponsor, the Bynum Bridge Fest is once again able to present an Academic Art Exhibition in 2018. Continuing on the success of the High School Student Art Showcase from 2017, this year the festival will feature an Academic Art Exhibition. Open to both students and teachers, both student awards and one art grant for an academic institution will be presented at the festival. So come to support local artists…..support Friends of the Lower Haw….support the arts in local schools. This year there are more reasons than ever to come to the Bynum Bridge Fest and enjoy an afternoon enjoy an afternoon of food, fun and fantastic art on the Haw River.
