IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STORY: Behind the Scenes, by Elizabeth Keckley
The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, an artist-owned and operated gallery in downtown Hillsborough, NC, presents the seventh annual featured show, It’s All About the Story. Each year gallery members choose a local author and book or story collection to respond to in their own medium. Previous authors include Michael Malone, Jill McCorkle, Lee Smith, Allan Gurganus, John Bemis, and Nancy Peacock. This year the artists have selected a work by a person who plays a very significant role in the history of Hillsborough, Elizabeth Keckley. Her memoir, Behind the Scenes, or Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House, describes her remarkable journey from slavery in Hillsborough to freedom as an accomplished dressmaker and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln. Each piece in the group show, It’s All About the Story, is inspired by Keckley’s inspiring book. The show runs from February 1st–February 20th.
