On Thursday, Nov. 1, The Green Door kicked off the holiday season with its annual She Dreams of Apalach reception. This year’s featured artist is photographer Lane Autrey whose photos illustrate a new book of essays, “Gone with the Tides and Other Southern Stories,” just published by her husband Gil and her. In addition, the gallery is presenting a stunning exhibit of her photos.

About 150 people came to enjoy the party and glimpse Lane’s latest work. Gill performed on acoustic guitar. At the end of the evening, revelers adjourned to the Gibson Inn for an impromptu late night snack prepared by Chef Ira Mittleman.
