Urban Gourmet Farms Dinner

Join us on January 14, 2018,

for a farm dinner to support Urban Gourmet Farms, a farm in Charlotte,
North Carolina, focused on growing gourmet mushrooms, while practicing organic, sustainable agriculture. Hiram Ramirez mushroom grower, is excited to share the gorgeous and delicious mushrooms with you.

The dinner will take place at Heirloom Restaurant, where Chef-Owner Clark Barlowe will highlight Urban Gourmet Farms mushrooms on the evening’s menu.

An optional drink pairing will feature a cocktail from Copper Barrel Distillery, as well as drinks from Fair Game Beverage and beer from Fullsteam Brewery. Cocktails will be concocted by Mixologist Dexter Dunan, whom Chef Barlowe has penned “The Great Charlotte Bartender You’ve Heard Nothing About.” Dunan, a French citizen and U.S. military veteran, takes great pride in his behind-the-bar infusion library, from which he creates his award-worthy cocktail lists. Do not miss adding this drink pairing to make your evening meal complete! Cocktail hour will begin at 5:00 pm and dinner at 6:00 pm.

Silent Auction

We will also hold a silent auction during the evening’s events, featuring two of Lindsay Kosma’s paintings, which she painted during 2017 Carolina Jubilee with the help of kids and the community.

About Lindsay Kosma

Lindsay Kosma is a painter and mixed media artist in Charlotte, North Carolina. Through her various mediums she creates environments that juxtapose the relationship between the natural and man-made world. Loose strokes and swashes of vibrant color are used to infuse emotion in to every piece. Stylistically, the work is abstract and impressionistic with hints of surrealism.

On the surface, her work may appear bright and straightforward and can stand alone as such. Though, there are always layers of meaning and metaphor that combine to form the aesthetic economy of each piece. Despite suggested meaning, Kosma leaves much room for interpretation. Usual subjects include people, specifically faces, architecture, flora, fauna, and other living and non-living organisms that are broken apart and reconstructed to incite substance.
