Carrying on the Herb Fest tradition

For 25 years, on Memorial Day weekend, visitors flocked to Anthony’s Herb Farm in Brighton, TN, for their annual Herb Festival. Anchored under the giant oak tree in the front yard of their country home, the festival featured talks, demos, vendors, and herbs...lots of herbs!

"Outside In" fine art photography by Rick Barnard in Fratelli's Cafe Gallery

About the show: “My photography is about the extraordinary beauty of our great country. I see it in the vivid colors and dramatic shapes of the western deserts; in the lush woods and rolling hills of the mid-Atlantic. I want to portray the haunting moonscapes of the Utah outback, the mystery and serenity of the eastern forests and the dancing waterfalls of America’s enticing rivers. “I hope my photographs inspire others to pause for reflection and think anew about the natural world...
