Being huge fans of Garden & Gun Magazine, we were humbled when an article on Southern Accents was featured in their latest issue! Our friend, and free lance writer, Jennifer Kornegay contacted us several months back that she had been contacted by G&G and asked to write an article about our business. We love how Garden & Gun portrays all things Southern and were thrilled they chose to include us. The article titled “Recovery Room” can be found on page 157 in the April/May 2016 issue, now on newstands.
Last year was our first opportunity to work with Garden & Gun. We were contracted by Mason Plus Dixon to design and build the G&G Artist Tent for Slossfest, a yearly music festival that takes place at the historic Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama. We are excited to announce that we will be working with Garden & Gun again this summer to design and build the artist tent for Slossfest 2016!
The theme of this months issue is “Outlaws and Renegades.” Given the fact that we think of our Southern Accents Team as being a band of creative misfits, inclusion in this particular issue seems quite appropriate! We think of ourselves as rebels, pounding the streets in an effort to rescue architectural relics that most deem old, worn, useless and rubble bound for the nearest landfill. We would like to thank Garden & Gun and everyone involved in the article for recognizing the important part we are playing in helping to preserve the architectural heritage of our American history.
