Cemetery Walking Tour at Old Cahawba set for Oct. 1

Contact: Jonathan Matthews, 334-872-8058

(Orrville, AL) Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, a historic site operated by the Alabama Historical Commission, will host a Cemetery Walking Tour on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m.-11 a.m.

The mysterious antiquity of Alabama’s most famous ghost town is apparent in the richly layered histories of its cemeteries. On October 1, at 10 a.m. a guided tour of one of Old Cahawba’s cemeteries, established in 1851, will explore the heartbreak and heartache experienced by Cahawba’s perpetual residents.

This “belles and beaus” themed graveyard tour will introduce residents like Augustus Hatcher Jackson who dreamed of a long life with his young bride before a horrible tragedy cut their marriage short. Other graves like those in William Curtis’ family plot will be visited. Participants will learn about his son-in-law, Rev. James Cotten, a man who had not known true love until he met William’s daughter, Miss Lucy. Papa Curtis reacted badly to both her wedding to Cotten and her untimely death.

Tickets are $8 each and available at the Old Cahawba Visitor Center. The tour is allotted for a maximum of 20 participants. Interested parties are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance of the event. Tickets may be purchased by calling 334-872-8058. Old Cahawba accepts all major credit cards. On the day of the event, participants will meet at the Visitor Center, rain or shine.

Old Cahawba lies at the confluence of the Alabama and Cahaba Rivers, and from 1819 to 1826 it served as Alabama’s first capital. From downtown Selma, take Highway 22 (Dallas Avenue) west 8.6 miles. Cross over the Cahaba River and turn left onto County Road 9 and follow this 3.3 miles until it dead ends. Turn left onto County Road 2 and follow this 1.5 miles until you see the Visitor Center on the right. Visitor Center Address: 9518 Cahaba Road, Orrville, AL 36767.

Join us tomorrow, Thursday, October 6th, 5:00 pm at Gallery 905.

Scenes of Selma, an artist reception featuring Jennifer Levins and Jo Taylor.

 

Jennifer is excited to showcase her new collection of original works of Selma.

Check out her bio below.

"A self-taught artist, I have been creating fine art since 2009 in such media as oil, oil pastels, colored pencil, and photography.

I am inspired by nature and history and my work often depicts the flowers, trees, and animals that surround me in my everyday life. Historic buildings and rustic barns are frequent subjects for my work as I try and capture the character and stories that these sites hold. In both my paintings and my photography, I try to capture the light in all its glory during sunrise and sunset as this is an inspiration to me.

Although self-taught, I continue to experiment with new techniques and learn more as I hone my craft. I have had the opportunity to attend workshops with other artists, including such notable artists as Perry Austin, Roger Dale Brown, Russell Everett, and Barbara Davis. I am originally from Selma, Alabama, and received my B.S. degree from Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy in 1998. I live in Prattville, Alabama, and show my work at the Julianne Hansen Fine Art and Pottery in Prattville. I also show my work at the Museum Shop at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art in Montgomery, Alabama, and Gallery 905 in Selma, Alabama." - Jennifer Levins

Mary Ann Casey is a writer, painter, and sculptor from Auburn, Alabama. Born and raised in the deep South, Casey’s expressive, contemporary paintings are portrayed through a variety of media. Mary Ann relies on her faith and Southern roots for inspiration, and her belief in the importance of family and faith are themes that run throughout her work which has been displayed throughout the South, including the Wiregrass Art Museum in Dothan, AL, the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy, AL, and the African American Museum in Dallas, TX.

Casey hopes that the paintings in this collection “become a collaboration between me and my viewers…I surrender my spirit to a sense of energy, love, oneness, hope and peace.”
