As a quintessential part of the South’s economy for generations, the tobacco industry carved a deep place in the region’s soul. The barns where tobacco leaves were hung to cure after harvest dotted the landscape in numbers as high as half a million until the mid-20th century in North Carolina alone. Today, fewer than 50,000 still stand in the state. These soulful paragons of the past hold a special fascination for Amy as she honors and preserves them in intriguing oil paintings.
