Film on Graveyard Fields to premiere on Sunday

To educate and advocate for Graveyard Fields, the Pisgah Conservancy has partnered with Bonesteel Films to produce a 16-minute documentary about the history, beauty and challenges facing the area.


The premiere of “Graveyard Fields: Call of the High Country” will be at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at the Cradle of Forestry in Pisgah Forest. Beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be offered.
The second screening will be 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the Fine Arts Theatre on Biltmore Avenue in Asheville, with a reception to follow next door at Blue Spiral 1 art gallery. Blue Spiral 1 exhibits work by exceptional artists and object makers in a 15,000 square-foot gallery spanning three floors, and maintains an extensive exhibition schedule, presenting over 25 shows annually.
Artist Julyan Davis has generously donated his oil painting “Cascade Below Upper Falls in Graveyard Fields” as a raffle prize to support The Pisgah Conservancy and its mission to preserve and maintain Graveyard Fields. An English-born artist who has painted the American South for 30 years Davis received his art training at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London.
Admission is free. Raffle tickets can be purchased online at www.pisgahconservancy.org. Funds will go toward protecting Graveyard Fields for the next generation.
