Storytelling session encourages sharing of ‘Red Dirt Memories’ this weekend

SFA’s School of Art and SFA Galleries will present “Red Dirt Memories: Storytelling with Jerry Permenter” tomorrow and Sunday, May 5 and 6, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

A native of the Swift community in Nacogdoches County, Permenter, who goes by the name Red DirtBoy on Facebook, grew up in rural East Texas, and his memories of those early years laid the groundwork for what is now the Facebook page Red Dirt Memories, which has quickly garnered more than 5,000 followers.

Permenter will share some of his own “red dirt” memories in storytelling sessions at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

During the storytelling sessions, those in attendance will have the opportunity to share their memories and ask questions as time allows.

For more information, call (936) 468-6557.
