LP: “Helping to revive the almost lost art of Hollerin’ ” by Sam F. Hudson.Hollerin’? …Wazzat? Well, it’s what rural people naturally did as they went about life, in the days before radios and trucks and such. They’d loudly sing and yell for different reasons, and a person was known by his holler, which was as distinctive as his face. Now, hollerin’ ain’t hog calling, so don’t go getting the two confused. Or so says quote in the booklet. We couldn’t say, as we haven’t braced ourselves to play it yet.Sponsored by The Spivey’s Corner Volunteer Fire Department (North Carolina), who continue to hold a National Hollerin Contest.

During the course of multiple residencies, Carter, Gormley, and printer Stephen O’Connell work at the Print Center to produce etchings of images and poems for the “On Bolus Head” project.
