Saturday night, the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery was adorned with the gorgeous works of famed Memphis artist Paul Edelstein. His pieces are bright and colorful, showing movement with a bit of whimsy.

Party-goers walked the path to the back of the gallery where tables were set up with beautiful tablescapes of adorned pumpkins and luminaries. Black and white striped runners added to the fall decor.

Taylor Grocery provided a wonderful, down-home Southern meal served buffet-style. Fried chicken strips and catfish were complimented with red potato salad, slaw, hushpuppies and green beans. The meal was topped off with warm peach cobbler.

Craft beer samplings were provided by Jackson Beer Company. There were many different selections available, some stout while others were quite mild.

The Yalobushwhackers, the house band for Thacker Mountain Radio, provided wonderful live music. They played their traditional music, as well as covers of songs everyone knew.
