This is our second year presenting the Local Farms/Local Art Exhibit. It will

subjects anywhere in North Carolina. Artists must currently reside in North Carolina. The submissions will be
reviewed by a screening panel of local art professionals. The artists whose work is selected will be contacted
to arrange for delivery of artwork. All artwork will be insured for the duration of the exhibit, in accordance
with Weaver Street Market policy. Panzanella is a part of the Weaver Street Market Cooperative, which is a
founding sponsor of the Piedmont Farm Tour.
