Here in the Atlanta metro, the juried Georgia Artists show has its opening reception Friday, May 5 6:30-8:30. I'm excited to report that for the first time, Sam and I both have worked accepted to the same show (that's not in our own home). For the best possible reason (our daughter is receiving her Master's degree) we will be unable to make it to the opening, but we can't wait to get a look at the show next week. I got a peek at the list of the other accepted artists accepted and a number of Atlanta's finest, in a variety of media, are there. I hope you'll make time to stop by while the show is up (till June 16).
One note about the venue: While the building faces Johnson Ferry Road, parking is located around the back of the facility, accessible by taking River Valley Road on the south side of Johnson Ferry, and then immediately turning left into Bridgewood Valley Road.
The other show features work by Tapestry Weavers South. It's rare to have a chance to see an all-tapestry show, and the weavers featured are some of the best in the country. Eminent weaver and teacher Tommye McClure Scanlin will deliver the keynote address at the opening, Saturday, May 6 at 3:00 p.m. That's a detail of her latest tapestry below. The show is in Yadkinville, NC. It's a beautiful time of year for a road trip!!!
