Wes Berry2014 Events & Exhibits


May 25: KY BBQ From The Big Muddy To Appalachia, spoken by Wes Berry at the ACMC Studio & Gallery, 3:00PM.  Admission is free.

A Kentucky Humanities Council Speaker’s Bureau presentation.  “Kentucky’s mom and pop barbecue joints serve some of the most soulful food you can find.  The pit tenders and owners (often the same person) burn a lot of hardwood and work long hours to delight us with their smoky arts.  From 2009 – 2012, Dr. Wes Berry hit the blue highways of Kentucky to eat the barbecue and interview the pitmasters.  He features his favorite places in The Kentucky Barbecue Book.  Berry will talk about regional styles of Kentucky barbecue and the colorful people he met during his journeys; offer a slideshow featuring the people, pits, and plates; and share selections from the book.”


ACMC Studio & Gallery is located at 120 S. Main Street, Harrodsburg, KY.
