Exhibit traces history of motorcycles

Written by 

See rare vintage and antiques motorcycles from the early 1900s at the Kick-Start! American Motorcycle Design exhibition in Highlands.

The exhibition will premiere with a reception and gallery talk from 5 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 7 at The Bascom. Motorcycles from the exhibit are on loan from Wheels Through Time, a Maggie Valley-based private collection.

The exhibition will trace the progression of 20th century design styles as evidenced through the motorcycle. The earliest objects will date from the early 1900s. From 1900 to 1928, motorcycles evolved from a motor powered bicycle to a form of reliable sport and transportation.

This exhibition is sponsored by Helen and Fred Cooper and Old Edwards Club members Barbara and Doug DeMaire, Judith and Robert Moore, Angela and Art Williams, and Patsy and Bill Wolff.

The Bascom’s exhibitions are free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and from noon to 5 p.m Sundays.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
