A feast for the eyes, SLIDELUCK Savannah serves up a side community along with local art and music.
It was a real fishes and loaves moment, as more than 400 folks packed the American Legion ballroom on Jan. 24, for the inaugural (and sold out) SLIDELUCK Savannah show, to feast on homemade casseroles and cookies, live tunes by hometown bluegrass band City Hotel, and a slideshow of works by 26 local artists.
“This is so Savannah,” said one Slidelucker, who managed to make it through the doors. The line of people holding dishes to get it in stretched down Bull Street and around the corner on Duffy.
Organized locally by Francis Allen and Summer Teal Simpson, the SLIDELUCK Potshow is a global sensation that celebrates community by combining the concepts of down-home potluck dinners and old-fashioned slideshows with the arts.
Olgethorpe Gallery will hold a reception this Thursday night, Jan. 31, and sponsored by Moon River Brewing Company, to showcase the works of the 26 artists featured as part of the SLIDELUCK slideshow. One more chance to break bread with fellow Savannahians.
