An annual celebration to savor the best of the state’s cuisine, spirits, art, history and more!
During the weekend of June 3rd-5th, the Old Baldy Foundation will celebrate North Carolina treasures with a roster of activities showcasing the best of the state's cuisine, spirits, arts, and history. The weekend's highlight will be the attendance of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Timberlake, featuring a coastal retrospective from his storied career!
The celebration of North Carolina treasures begins on June 3rd at 6pm, with southern-inspired cuisine being served oceanside by the innovative chefs from the Shoals Club. As you dine, Bob Timberlake will speak about how our home state inspires his detailed and intricate paintings. Art has taken him around the world, being honored by past presidents and Prince Charles of Buckingham Palace. Even through the international acclaim, Timberlake can't escape the magic of home, North Carolina. This inspired evening is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get a glimpse into the mind of one of NC's finest treasures, Bob Timberlake. Toast to an unforgettable night with cocktails crafted with local spirits from Cape Fear Distillery, craft beer brewed with purpose from Flying Machine Brewery and selections from Long Creek Wines.
Saturday, June 4th & Sunday, June 5th, will feature a Bob Timberlake Exhibition hosted by All About Art Gallery at the Bald Head Island Association. Original pieces focusing on Timberlake's coastal works will be displayed. All pieces will be available for viewing from 11-5 both days. The exhibition is open to the public with no tickets required.
