I know it’s not official till the Vernal Equinox, but the jonquils and crocus tell a different story as they paint the landscape with their bright yellow, purple and orange hues. These warm days also signal the start of the outdoor festival season, where artists “paint” the landscape with their festive tents and colorful artwork. As in the past, our Guild will participate in North Georgia’s biggest outdoor show, Celebrate Clayton Art & Music Festival. This well advertized and well attended show is a great opportunity for us to promote the Guild and our talented artists. All Guild members are invited to display a few pieces of your artwork in the NGAG booth.
In June we join the Northeast Georgia Arts Tour with our informal show, Art At Veteran’s Park, in downtown Clayton. This one day event crosses four North Georgia counties, Rabun, Habersham, White and Lumpkin, and draws thousands of shoppers from all over the region. We’ll be included in all the publicity, listed in the Arts Tour brochure, have a number on the driving map, and pictured on the website.
And that’s not all! In July we host our premier show, the 6th Annual Art At The Lake, in the beautiful lake Rabun Pavilion. In addition to showcasing the art and artists of North Georgia, this show allows us to support our community by providing fund raising opportunities for non-profit organizations such as the Rabun County Band Boosters, the Ferst Literacy Foundation, and Knights of Columbus. As in the past, 10% of art sales is donated to the Lake Rabun Association Scholarship Fund.
Stay tuned for more information on these and many more great opportunities to show and sell your artwork!
