“I think storytelling has always been an essential part of being human, and it is especially important in these polarizing times,” said Rachael Price, Assistant Professor of English and Pegasus Literary Magazine adviser at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. “Stories are one of the most important ways we relate to each other as human beings.”
Plough Gallery and Pegasus will continue its series “From the Horse’s Mouth” on October 20th, 2018 at 6 p.m. This event is open to the public and anyone is welcome to come share their stories. There is usually a theme for these events, but this one is completely open allowing individuals to tell any form of story. Students from ABAC will be attending as well as storytelling.
Pegasus is an award winning art and literary magazine created by the students of ABAC to provide opportunities for regional artists and writers to showcase their works. The magazine has been in publication for over 40 years.
“From the Horse’s Mouth” was based on the popular podcast “The Moth.” Price used episodes from “The Moth” in her classroom to teach the craft of storytelling and wanted to open the experience to the public. She then partnered with Plough Gallery to host and celebrate community storytelling.
The Gallery is currently hosting the work of Atlanta photographer David King for the show “Triskelion.” King’s work provides a surreal and pensive atmosphere for the event.
Plough Gallery is located at 216 W 8th St. You can find out more information about this event on “ABAC Pegasus” Facebook page.
