GALLERY SHOW IS OPEN APRIL 26 - MAY 12, 2109
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
One Acre Exchange celebrates the community built through a shared hemp fiber supply chain. Hemp holds tremendous potential as a crop that can contribute to restoring our working landscape, revitalizing our regional economy, and rethinking the impact of the way we produce textiles. Connecting local farmers, workers and artisans centered around hemp grown and processed in Durham County, the work represented in One Acre Exchange serves as a model for how an innovative, cooperative, equitable supply chain can be designed.
