Gallery Talk with Beate Sass:
Tall Timbers Plantation Project
Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 2:00 pm

In this talk, “Beate Sass will be discussing her photographic and oral history project entitled Tall Timbers Plantation. This project is about the former tenant farmers that lived on Tall Timbers Plantation in Tallahassee, Florida from the early to mid-1900’s and honors the important role their families played in the survival of the plantations after the emancipation. This photographic project includes the portraits and accompanying oral histories of the former tenant farmers as well as photographs created at the restored Jones Family Tenant House and the Beadel House, the plantation house, at Tall Timbers.

Accompanying Beate in her talk will be Juanita Whiddon, the archivist from Tall Timbers Research and Land Conservancy (formally Tall Timbers Plantation). Juanita was instrumental in acquiring funds and overseeing the restoration of the historic structures on Tall Timbers and has dedicated herself to documenting the history of this fascinating place.”

This talk is being presented in conjunction with Beate Sass’ exhibition Tall Timbers Plantation Project on view until August 12, 2012 at the:

Lyonia Environmental Center, Lyonia Gallery
