Special flags on display around crossroads through July 21

CASHIERS -- It’s time to fly the flags for the fifth annual biennial Cashiers Plein Air Festival. A guided walking tour of the flag installation will be at 10 a.m. Friday July 6 beginning at the Village Green Commons. Participants have a free chance to see all of the work! The flags hanging throughout the park and village herald the festival, which occurs July 17-21.

About 30 southern Jackson County-area artists contributed to the event. The subject matter and style of painting varies with each flag. The posts decorate the intersection of the crossroads, hang along Frank Allen Road and within the Village Green. Many community members contributed toward this project. Installed by Nathan Stewart-Payne of Double Springs Landscaping, the banners hang form posts donated by Randy Bryson of Bryson's Stone Yard and hardware by Jennings Lumber & Supplies. Mary Palmer Dargan and Jennifer Lown of Dargan Landscape Architects served as co-chairmen of the event.

Cashiers Plein Air Festival benefits the Village Green, the privately conserved public park and future events center site in the center of the community.
